One of the largest public aquariums in the world is not to be missed during your visit to Japan. Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan is definitely one of the best and most impressive aquariums I have ever seen! The aquarium is huge with over 15 large tanks and has 8 floors altogether. Visitors will begin the tour from the 8th floor and there is a great variety of aquatic animals including whale sharks, penguins, dolphins, jellyfish, huge turtles, stingrays, king crabs and many more amazing sea creatures. Visitors could easily spend at least two hours at the Aquarium and it is a great place to visit during a rainy day.
Osaka Aquarium is located at Osakako Station on the Chuo subway line and there are directions showing you to the aquarium as soon as you get off the train. The aquarium is a 5 minutes’ walk from Osakako Station. I would definitely recommend this attraction to anyone especially families with children. However, it could get really crowded with too many visitors during the weekends and even on weekdays.
