My kids had a blast in this place. Very many varied animals from different ecosystems were featured in the exhibits, including the world's largest rodent, the capybara. The main exhibit contained different sharks, rays, saltwater fish and whalesharks. There was even a shallow pool before the exit where you can touch some manta rays and sharks. We had fun in one exhibit where you can trasform your face into a fish. Overall highly recommended.

Its a nice neighborhood walk from the train station to Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan.
I like how they segregated the aquatic creatures by the zones they thrive in, example Monterey Bay, Pacific Ocean, artic, etc

Tips: leave your stroller at the locker area, its hard to bring a stroller inside since its dark and kids will want to walk around anyway

-after Kaiyukan, kids can visit Legoland discovery center which is right beside it
-have lunch at Tempozan mall, there is a food court with plenty of variety of cuisines to choose from

Magnificent aquarium, the bigest and one of the best in the world. Saw penguins, whale sharks, hamerhead sharks, manta rays, many other sharks and rays, jellyfishes, octopus, many beautiful and unusual fish, crabs, dolphins, seals, etc. Centre tank with the whale sharks is huge, magnificent. Went on a Saturday and very, very crowded.

Lovely place with so much to see! This is à must do if you love sealife. The walk is around a super big fish tank on 3 floors.

Be prepared to have your mind blown at the gorgeous exhibits throughout this facility. I travel the world looking at aquariums and this one blew my mind. I was kind of prepared for it through my research but to see the whale sharks feeding was amazing to say the least. Go early to beat the crowds and see the sharks being fed. Simply amazing! I know I use the word amazing a lot, but that is the best word I know to describe this experience! AMAZING!!!
