Creatures on Display

A tour of Osaka Aquarium KAIYUKAN starts from Japan Forest where you can feel the beautiful sun shine and fresh air in the forest. Fifteen tanks dramatically display marine lives.

KAIYUKAN Aquarium is one of the largest aquariums in the world. Its theme is partly based on the new Gaia Hypothesis advocated by Dr. James Lovelock.

Focusing on the Ring of Fire (Pan Pacific Volcanic Zone) and the Ring of Life (Pan Pacific Life Zone), KAIYUKAN Aquarium respects the dignity of life and natural environment. A Japanese word KAIYUKAN literally means "Playing in the Sea Pavilion." In this aquarium, visitors can enjoy creatures as if they are playing together in the sea.

KAIYUKAN Aquarium has selected 15 regions along the Ring of Fire (Pan Pacific Volcanic Zone), and reproduced the bountiful nature and various creatures mainly living in the Pacific Ocean. The capacity of 11,000 tons of water is the world's top-class volume . The aquarium exhibits numerous creatures including fishes, plants, invertebrate animals, batrachians, reptiles, birds, and mammals.
