Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan - Review
The Osaka Aquarium, also known as Kaiyukan, is located in the Tempozan Harbor Village of Osaka's bay area. It is one of Japan's most spectacular and grand aquariums. Spread across 8 floors, the aquarium is home to some of the most beautiful and stunning creatures of the aquatic world. Travel on the suggested route and descend a spiral slope, viewing the tanks along the way. The Central Tank is around 9 metres long and houses the aquarium's main attraction, the whale sharks.

Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan, Osaka Reviews
Love this aquarium so much! It got a range of lovely sea creatures with lots of big glasses so that we can see them more closely. It got many interactive games as well! I particularly love the lovely seals who followed the movement of a kid on the other side of the glass! It’s so funny! We had a great time in the aquarium!
This is the best aquarium I have ever been to! I love the layout of this aquarium! The animals here are amazing and there are so many different ones to see..... Also, the aquarium itself is huge! There are so many things to see and do here which makes it great for kids and adults alike! Make sure to plan accordingly if you want to see the entire aquarium as it is really big! So make sure to go with enough time so you can enjoy everything and not be rushing. Again, this is by far the best aquarium I have ever been to and I definitely do recommend it to anyone in the area! This aquarium is a must see!
This place is incredible. The variety of animals, but also the loads of educational content makes this place a must visit while in Osaka. The whole place is accessible. Quick tip; it gets crazy packed in the day time. Go later in the day or closer to close time (8 PM) to experience the aquarium with more ease.
No shows or particularly interesting exhibits, but you can explore floors 7 - 3 which has different tanks. Some of the bigger tanks take up 2-3+ floors and it's cool to see the animals both on land and under water. Some animals are more illusive, so try to go during feeding time to catch their attention. Would avoid mornings and early afternoons as they're filled with tours and school children.
If you have 2-3 hours to spare, this is a great stop in Osaka! Great selection of aquatic friends! Feeding schedules posted at the entrance so be sure to make a note of which ones you can attend. 7? Floors of fun in store for you! I liked the famine flavored ice cream at the cafe in the middle of our walk through.
