Marvel at the Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan’s sea creatures
Situated on the waterfront of Osaka Bay, the Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan (海遊館) is a world-class aquarium showcasing 30,000 sea creatures from around 620 different species. At this eight-storey aquarium, visitors can begin on the 8th floor and gradually meander down while viewing marine animals such as whale sharks, sea lions and sea turtles.
The spiral structure allows visitors to observe the animals from different angles and depths, making the experience even more captivating. If you prefer to avoid the crowds, visit on a weekday afternoons or after 5 pm when the aquarium features mystical music and lights.
