    This is so worth it. Allow urself 2.5hrs at least to enjoy it. There are other things to do there like the wheel and Legoland! Great way to spend half a day.

    Whale shark is the highlight. Dont miss out their feeding time! Touch pool is full of rays and shark as well, you may have a feel of their skin texture

    Amazing aquarium. The whale shark and the penguins were great. Be sure to get the aquarium + subway pass. Very crowded on weekends.

    Make sure to see the sea lion feeding if you can.

    Their tanks don't do a great job of pretending to be real, but you can overlook that when everything is bigger and crazier than other aquariums. Whale shark! Giant spider crabs! Crowded AF.

    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!

    Very well designed aquarium but could find any emergency exits. You have to finish the entire loop to come out from it.

    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.

    So beautifully designed that even if it was any other sort of museum, it would still be a delightfully magical experience.

    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. *_*

    Great for children. Their whale shark is the main attraction here. In my opinion, nothing else is recommended otherwise🤔

    If you are coming from Osaka centre get the subway and aquarium combined ticket. It's a flat rate subway ticket so you can take the subway anywhere!

    Compact and entertainment packed, kaiyukan is also well designed and starred various creatures in beautiful settings. One of the best aquarium I have visited :)

    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.
