“Kids love Osaka Aquarium”
Reviewed June 2, 2013

The architectural design Kaiyukan Aquarium is very unique. The long and high escalator brings you to the top floor of the aquarium, followed by the spiral path down to the ground floor. Huge aquariums house different sea animals. Kids will be able to touch baby sting rays, baby sharks, turtles, etc..

“Beautiful”
Reviewed June 1, 2013

Even if you've seen other aquariums and are thinking why bother visiting another one, well think again. This one is really different and worth the visit. The way it's been built is brilliant.
