  • The aquarium tube is very short, you might enjoy the view from outside better than inside. Zoo was nice with lovely creatures for kids. Unfortunately we didnt catchup with penguins show

  • It was truly amazing. The staff is so friendly! I did the tour behind the “scenes” and got to see how they run the aquarium. I loved being here, and the vitality of animals is incredible. Al I can wish for is for everyone visiting the aquarium not to tap, slap and knock on the glass of the fish tanks. It’s not nice and they don’t have to be treated like that by us humans. Respect them and view them peacefully. They are living creatures we don’t get to see so take in the time you spend here. It’s truly a magical experience.
  • Overall an interesting place to visit if you never seen one. It has few cool unique features, however does not live up to it's hype. The huge aquarium itself is seen for free from the outside. In my opinion that is the main attraction. The information provided for each inhabitant of the zoo is unfortunately limited to the name, so you have to Google to know more. Search for tickets online to get a good discount. Took us about 75 minutes to slowly go through the whole exhibition. BTW, if you are ever in Osaka - make sure to visit their aquarium - it is simply amazing!
