Churaumi aquarium

Visit one of the world's largest and best aquariums in Okinawa

As an archipelago with a strong maritime culture, Okinawa is home to one of the world's best aquariums. 

For anyone with even a passing interest in marine wildlife, Okinawa's Churaumi Aquarium is a must-see. The aquarium was completely renovated in 2002 and its main draw is the impressive Kuroshio Tank, named after the Kuroshio Current which surrounds the Okinawa archipelago. The tank is home to giant whale sharks and manta rays. The massive tank is several stories high so you can view the marine life inside from different levels.
