My daughter and I were planning to make our last day in Osaka to visit its famed Universal Studios. However, since we wont be enjoying it to the fullest because we should be back to the hotel by 4 pm in time for our 8 pm flight back to Manila, we decided to pass the chance and choose the Osaka Aquarium instead. We really didnt regret it at all.
Known as one of the world's best and largest aquariums, it houses a huge collection of marine and antarctic life. I really enjoyed the cute penguins and dancing dolphins. We already have these enormous whale sharks in Sorsogon but Osaka Aquarium has the "younger" ones so it was a sight to enjoy as well. We rented audio guides (Y500 each) so we will have some background info on the animal displays. We had plenty of videos taken since these sea creatures were more beautiful as they glided in the waters.
Its also beside the famed Tempozan Ferris Wheel, which was once the tallest Ferris Wheel in the world. We ate lunch in the harbor village mall adjacent to it and enjoyed the ramen treats and souvenirs.
