    adults and children alike should get the stamp booklet at the entrance for ¥350 for an additional treasure hunt element.

    The largest in the world, with 8 floors that spiral down a large center tank that’s 9 meters deep and holds 5,400 cubic meters of water.

    Entrance fee for the aquarium alone is 2300¥. Other entrance fee packages are available i.e., aquarium+ferriswheel, aquarium+cruiseship etc. Very crowded during weekends and holidays. A must see!

    If you're a tourist, get the subway pass which includes admission to the aquarium (2900 yen); great value. The main tank has many points of view, so don't spend too long when you first see it.

    This amazing aquarium is open until 8pm. So beat the crowds by coming towards the end of the day - 5.30pm onwards. You'll miss the animal feeding but you'll have peace!

    The main aquarium is marvelous, depth of 8 floors filled with whale sharks, tiger sharks, oceanic manta rays, stingrays and schools of fish. You can pet some sharks and rays on the end of route. *_*

    Get the aquarium pass from the train station (2,500 yen) to take advantage of a day pass on non-JR train line and a discount on other attractions in the city.

    It's certainly one of the biggest, not quite sure it's one of the best. Most impressive specimens of Japanese Spider Crabs I've seen! On the whole maybe a bit too many animal animals for an aquarium.

    Every whale shark and manta have their own unique designs that allow you to identify them individually. Memorize their spots so you can say hi to them the second time you come!

    Good aquarium if you've only seen restaurant fish tanks your entire life, then again this is relatively inexpensive. The notable one in Japan is in Okinawa.

    Sea otters, penguins, dolphins and sea lions are just some of the highlights of Kaiyukan Aquarium. But a major attraction is the awe-inspiring giant whale shark. His name’s Kai-kun.
