Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan, Osaka Reviews - Write a Review
Best aquarium I have ever visited. The exhibits were plentiful and varying. It includes animals such as penguin, sea lion and dolphin. There were even live feeding sessions where we could see the animals performing tricks which is definitely a must see! Moreover, special exhibits showcased fishes that have weird / abnormal body shape or features. It is definitely a must go if you are in Osaka.
Osaka Aquarium has to be one of the coolest aquariums I’ve been to. The are multiple levels. The main attraction is probably the whale sharks. There are two whale sharks and you can view them from multiple levels. There are certain times that the whale sharks are fed, be sure to view them during feeding time - a very cool sight to see! There are areas where you can pet some of the marine animals as well! Overall, a very cool experience!
Well maintained. Animal shows are entertaining and not to mention plenty of interactive stuff for kids to learn. You should check out the most famous attraction here - the whale shark. Aside from that you'd also surely love the stingray experience. Try touching one during your visit.
Beautiful aquarium. One of the best. Highly recommend it if you are in Osaka. It's setup based on region of the world and had aquariums ranging from the Great Barrier Reef to Antarctica. Admission was 2300 yen per person. Feeding times for the tanks are listed and happen several times a day. Late morning to early afternoon is the ideal time to go for feedings.
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 :P 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.
