This place should be shut down. If you visit you do realise you are encouraging and funding the horrific Taiji dolphin hunts? Which is where their dolphins come from. Beyond cruel

Horrible

Horrible experience. These animals belong in the wild , not explouted in small tanks. Dolphins caught during the brutal Taji drives.

relaxing and peaceful aquarium.
Mar 2020
Great place for a stroll. You can do the aquarium in less than 3 hours if you can put this on your trip itinerary.

The aquarium has an extensive marine collection. The highlight were the pacific white-sided dolphins. They were very active and interacted with a lot of the guests.

I feel sad to see such beautiful fish confined in this condition. I recommend Okinawa Aquarium more.

Fun few hours at Osaka Aquarium KAIYUKAN
Sep 2020
It was a nice Aquarium with lots of exhibitions. It was a little cool in there but maybe that was what was needed for the aquariums to function correctly (I don't know). Our kids got see see a lot of animals that they would never have the chance to see and with that comes empathy for them. After seeing these animals maybe they will choose a future where they will actively seek/or make efforts in their lives, to protect them. For those that are calling this animal cruelty or saying that the dolphin enclosure could be larger (on this point I actually agree), remember you also came and gave your entry money to the Aquarium.

This is an institutionalized animal cruelty. Stop this inhumane business.
Please educate yourself and do not take children to a place like that

This is a very cool aquarium but I couldn't help get the feeling that the ferris wheel next to it is about to fall down on top of us any moment.
