Located on the Motobu Peninsula in northern Okinawa Honto within the Ocean Expo Park is the Okinawa Churaumi Aquarium, Japan’s largest and arguably one of the most frequented aquariums. The word "chura" means "beautiful" in the Okinawa dialect, and it’s a pretty fair title given the prefecture’s love of everything ocean. A must visit destination for most vacationing in Okinawa, the world class aquarium is home to approximately 21,000 marine life and counted its 34 millionth visitor in 2015. These days it’s still one of the best locations in the world to get up close and personal with everything below the sea.
