Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan

  • During Spring holidays, we brought our kids to Bay Area where Osaka Kaiyukan Aquarium is located. It was our first visit and we didn't plan the trip really well. 
  • We took the subway Midosuji line(red) to Hommachi and then from there, we stopped at Osakako station by subway Chuo line(green). 

On your way, you won't miss a big landmark nearby. The ferris wheel.

That is Santa Maria Cruise

Closer view of the largest ferris wheel in the world. Tempozan Ferris Wheel.

We didn't have much time as we arrived at noon. We'll make another visit for the ferris wheel ride :)

The entrance of the Marketplace. Shopping & Dining. There's a Turkish restaurant serving halal food here. Yeay!!

Chasing the birds :)

We had to queue. It was a long queue, but the waiting time wasn't that long.

The tunnel is not as long as the one in Aquaria KLCC.

The otters.


Our favourite spot, the penguins corner :)

Dolphins. The pictures are all blurry. They swam so fast and I'm no professional photographer :P

Only in Japan. Giant crabs!


Cucumber jellyfish

  • After the tour, we had late lunch at the Turkish restaurant. A buffet which cost about 1400yen per head. Affordable, so I recommend you to go there as there's not much choice of halal food around. 
  • All in all, we had a great time there. Most importantly, the kids enjoyed their time that day :D.
