I've been to Aquariums in Bangkok, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Manila and Singapore and it seems Singapore has the best one so far since it's fairly new. However, Kaiyukan is still a good place to visit for those who are into aquariums and would want to have it ticked off their aquariums list. The number and diversity of fishes is ok... More

WHAT A LOVELY PLACE TO SPEND THE WHOLE AFTERNOON. Children especially will enjoy seeing all the sea creatures therein. There are restaurants, lots of shopping places and is near another great Osaka attraction, the huge ferris wheel. I would certainly like to go back there again!

If you're visiting Osaka do not miss this aquarium! It was by far the best aquarium I've visited to date. The set up was easy to navigate, it was interactive, the animals in the tank (referring to dolphins and sea lions, etc) seem really healthy & more importantly happy! This aquarium is on top of keeping the tanks clean. They... More

So usually where ever I go on holiday I will always go to their aquarium. This one was easily the best I have been to. Nice big tanks, lost of information, lots of different things to look at. Great for adults and kids.

We bought the "Kaiyukan + city subway" ticket at 2,550 yen (available at the airport) which is cheaper than buying a subway day pass and paying separately for the aquarium entrance ticket. However, if your kid is 16 and below, then it is more economical to buy a subway day pass and buying an entrance ticket at the aquarium (which... More

Best aquarium I have visited. The whale shark tank and dolphins were a highlight for me. Easily accessed from subway and close to the tempozan ferace wheel afterward which made for a fun afternoon.

Just your typical aquarium. We went through it in about an hour. Good place to go when it's raining or hot outside.

Highly recommend to visit with kids. Many different kinds of fishes and sea creatures, like jelly fish, dolphins, whale sharks, sea lion, etc. My kid is extremely excited to be here, running around touching bb shark, feeling amazed to jelly fishes. Good to visit again and educate kid to protect our ocean and earth
