One of the best aquariums and probably one of the few where one can see whale sharks up close, and a whole lot of other sea creatures and animals! Both children and adults will enjoy it.

Lots to see, but it has to be the Pacific tank with two whale sharks that draw the most visitors. Easy to reach from anywhere in Osaka via the Metro system.

Check if your hotel sells the tickets. we stayed at universal port and they sold the tickets and ferry tickets also. Very easy and not crowded day we went. Never saw any lines to get it. Well organised. Enjoy.
