If you have 2-3 hours to spare, this is a great stop in Osaka! Great selection of aquatic friends! Feeding schedules posted at the entrance so be sure to make a note of which ones you can attend. 7? Floors of fun in store for you! I liked the famine flavored ice cream at the cafe in the middle of our walk through.

This is a terrific aquarium. We visited on a rainy day. It's really kid-friendly and they did an excellent job designing the space so that you can get many different views of the tanks. I loved that they had a stamp rally for the young ones and the touch tank. My reason for a 4 star is that some of the tanks seemed really small for the animals living there. But if you're traveling to Osaka and need something to do on a rainy day, this is a great choice.

This aquarium is one of the best I've ever been to. This can easily take a whole day of relaxing and enjoying all the animals. There is so much to see as far as the animals go there are otters, capyberas, the whale sharks, sunfish, spider crabs and so many random animals! There were lots of animals I had never even seen before. This is not to be missed! The restaurant itself has great views of the bay. Great place to take kids and take pictures! Good time if you have an extra day before or after universal japan

This is a great aquarium, a place with so much to see even for regular aquarium fans like me. The sheer size and the variety of fish should be enough to persuade any visitor of Osaka to come to this attraction at least once. The downside of the place, though, is that there are simply too many people at any given time. I have never been here in the evening, but during the mornings and the day, it is very hard to enjoy any single tank because of the various people taking pictures, recording a video or having a simple chat with his/her company. You can't blame them though, there are no rules against enjoying a tank for yourself 😝 The other thing I found missing here was that being such a gigantic aquarium, this is more like a 'bazaar' should I say... of fish, rather than a coherent story. This shouldn't be a matter for people who just enjoy seeing a good variety of fish, though.

Hands down the best aquarium I've ever visited. It's organized in such a way as to make the visit simple, informative and fun. The escalator at the entrance will bring you to the top, from which a path circles back to the bottom, revealing the main tank in the centre after only a few turns. That tank is the highlight of the exhibit, not only because of the two whale sharks that majestically grace its water, but also for the appeal of the many other species of fish, rays and smaller sharks. The end brings you to a separate area where you can touch some sharks and rays back's, gently... and the requisite souvenir shop. All in all, fun for kids and adults as well. One last thing, visiting on a Friday evening, we found the place relatively quiet. A bonus in a populated city like Osaka, even if it was a rainy evening conducive to indoor activities!
