DONT GO. when will we all learn? Do we have to watch animals locked up the saddest thing I’ve ever seen, even if they were treated humanely which they’re not.

One of the best aquarium in Japan, different kinds of marine life from all over the world. Charming view, you can see the divers feeding sharks face to face inside the water. The building is large, you will start the tour from up to down, loop style, cinema mood, while watching different levels of the aquarium. I like this place, However, for kids the tour is very long 777 meters, of course there are multiple rest rooms on the way down, but if you want to get out of the dark, it is very long way given the fact that eating and drinking is not permitted inside. Anyway I give this place 5 stars as an aquarium.
One of the best places in Osaka. Educational and fun. Facility is clean and well maintained like Japanese standard. Japan is amazing, they can make everything so well even for animals. We don’t understand Japanese and we still can have a good experience here with different sea animals. Love this place. For kids, for adults and for anyone who has a loving heart towards animals. This place is awesome.
