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

  • This aquarium is one of the best I've ever been to. This can easily take a whole day of relaxing and enjoying all the animals. There is so much to see as far as the animals go there are otters, capyberas, the whale sharks, sunfish, spider crabs and so many random animals! There were lots of animals I had never even seen before. This is not to be missed! The restaurant itself has great views of the bay. Great place to take kids and take pictures! Good time if you have an extra day before or after universal japan

  • Hands down the best aquarium I've ever visited. It's organized in such a way as to make the visit simple, informative and fun. The escalator at the entrance will bring you to the top, from which a path circles back to the bottom, revealing the main tank in the centre after only a few turns. That tank is the highlight of the exhibit, not only because of the two whale sharks that majestically grace its water, but also for the appeal of the many other species of fish, rays and smaller sharks. The end brings you to a separate area where you can touch some sharks and rays back's, gently... and the requisite souvenir shop. All in all, fun for kids and adults as well. One last thing, visiting on a Friday evening, we found the place relatively quiet. A bonus in a populated city like Osaka, even if it was a rainy evening conducive to indoor activities!

  • This is a great aquarium, a place with so much to see even for regular aquarium fans like me. The sheer size and the variety of fish should be enough to persuade any visitor of Osaka to come to this attraction at least once. The downside of the place, though, is that there are simply too many people at any given time. I have never been here in the evening, but during the mornings and the day, it is very hard to enjoy any single tank because of the various people taking pictures, recording a video or having a simple chat with his/her company. You can't blame them though, there are no rules against enjoying a tank for yourself 😝 The other thing I found missing here was that being such a gigantic aquarium, this is more like a 'bazaar' should I say... of fish, rather than a coherent story. This shouldn't be a matter for people who just enjoy seeing a good variety of fish, though.

  • Amazing aquarium! It is definitely a must see in Osaka. The aquarium is several level and you start I the top. This is a fantastic Aquarium if you are looking to see a lot of what Japan as to offer in its water. They have a huge tank in the middle of the aquarium with a whale shark that is swimming with other sharks and big and small fish. This a fantastic experience and recommend it over Tokyo's Aquarium. The price is better and the layout of the aquarium is much better.

  • An awesome place to go. Highly recommended. This is by far the best aquarium I have been in. It has a lot of sharks variants, and even allowed you to touch the sharks (in a safe zone area). Penguins, turtles, sting rays, mantas, whale shark, and many more sea creatures are there for you to sight see. Jelly fish arena was amazing. Kaiyukan did such a great job maintaining the fishes in an environment that is kept in high quality. Excellent job!
