Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan Reviews
ジンベエザメ目的で訪れました。都心の水族館なので、広々したの大きい水槽を眺めると言うよりも、工夫された展示を楽しむような水族館でした。イベント展示もいくつか行われていて、大人も子供も楽しく過ごせました。イルカやアシカのショーなどがないので、比較的短い時間で見て回りました。1日の予定を組むなら、近隣のレゴランドや観覧車を入れての方がいいかもしれません。 more »We visited in whale sharks. Did the Aquarium exhibits than of spacious Downtown Aquarium, so look at the large tank designed to enjoy. Have done some exhibition events, had fun at adults and children. See dolphin and sea lion shows, such as not, so a relatively short time, around. Put Ferris and nearby LEGOLAND 1 day schedule, you might want.
Aquarium opgebouwd rond één gigantische centrale tank. Inkomkaartje is prijzig, maar je krijgt er veel voor terug. Machtige dieren! more »Aquarium built around one giant Central tank. Entrance ticket is pricey, but you get a lot in return. Mighty animals!
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
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.
