If you have some Extra time and you are around the Bay area then you Should visit this Aquarium. If you have seen the Aquariums of Singapore and Sydney you can Skip it also.

A nice place to spend an evening. Totally loved the giant wheel ride and the view of the entire city. We missed the giant shark going through the floors of the aquarium. The ice cream at the cafeteria was indeed excellent.

This is the best aquarium I've seen so far. The number of species that they have are vast. They also have some land animals on display. A young whale shark is the main attraction. There is a small mall beside the aquarium which has a lot of restaurants around.

If you are in Osaka and a lover of sea creatures, this is one place you should not missed! It houses alot of different species of fishes and animals. I simply can't get enough of it. However, i went in the morning and had to share the rather small walkway with alot of school students who are in their school trip. Seems like the entire school had come to the aquarium! Perhaps a visit during the afternoon might be quieter. The Ferries wheel is located nearby too, it's great to take a ferries ride after a grand tour of the aquarium.

We went during January 2012 and it was pretty cold so we were able to see the penguins walk outdoors. The aquarium was not crowded and the design was interesting that you start from the top and work your way down. Overall my toddler son enjoyed the experience very much!
