Nice place for young people

In the area, we could see the Aquarium, Lego Centre, Ferris Wheel and also could ride La Santa Maria, almost full day you can enjoy the said places for even a whole day.

This village is a place of respite after you visit the Osaka Aquarium. Nothing fancy. My daughter bought a doggie doll here but you can find a cheaper price in Haneda airport. A bit like San Fransisco harbor but in smaller scale.

Passed through on the way to the aquarium . Simply another mall for shopping. Aquarium was the draw for my family. Liked the exhibits having multi species exhibits, touch tank, and wasn't too crowded the mid week day we visited

Not much to distinguish this mall from the many in Osaka. But the walk outside where you can see the harbor and the surrounding scenery is still worth a visit.

Even though we did not visit the aquarium or take a ride of the giant ferris wheel, we enjoyed the pleasant walk around the vicinity and the waterfront view. We also spent some time in the mall, which had the usual shops and food arcade, nothing really spectacular. I would say this place is better suited for family with children.... More

This place is good for family activities. You can ride the ship or the ginormous ferris wheel, or just spend your time inside the aquarium. It spells FUN, FUN.

Nothing too fancy here. What makes it special is the indoor petting zoo. They recently added a Legoland but I have heard it is not worth the price. The reason my ranking is so low is because the lack of quality shops and restaurants. Mostly just for people visiting the aquarium and the ferris wheel.

A small mall right next to Kaiyukan that has a good variety of food. However we were trying to find a ramen restaurant and the two we saw did not appeal to us at all. Also they close at 8 so we went somewhere else. Shopping is limited.
