Ring of Fire Aquarium

Ring of Fire Aquarium

Osaka's enormous Ring of Fire aquarium makes for a fantastic outing for adults and kids alike.

Osaka boasts one of Japan's most popular aquariums located in the city's harbour area. The aquarium has 15 tanks each representing a different area of the Pacific Ocean rim known as the Ring of Fire. The main central tank is 9 metres deep and is home to a beautiful whale shark. Keep an eye out for the enormously appealing sea otters and the eerie giant spider crabs. The display of jelly fish has won awards for its innovative use of ultra-violet light to illuminate these ghostly organisms.

Be sure to stop in the gift shop on the way out for a chance to pick up an exceedingly cute souvenir of your day out.
