Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan

12 reviews of Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan


Largest aquarium in the world

This surprisingly-large aquarium is busy 365 days a year with visiting groups of students and a mix of Japanese and international tourists. It's famous for being the largest aquarium in the world and it's full of sea creatures that are as interesting as they are bizarre. If you're visiting Osaka, it's worth spending one morning here checking out the enormous sharks, crabs with 6-foot long legs, hypnotic jellyfish, or the world's largest rodent (it's terrifyingly big!). It was pretty incredible! My only tip is to have patience with the crowds: it's a common occurrence throughout Japan.

The best aquarium I've ever visited


This is been the best aquarium I've ever visited. There is an impressive 4-story main pool with a whale shark (the star of the aquarium), jellyfish and giant crabs from Japan. As a sort of curious note, there's a section dedicated to sharks with a life-sized artificial great white with its cage and all, just for a laugh. The store is very Japanese of course, with stuffed animals of all the animals in the aquarium! It's really worth seeing!
