Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan

The Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan is the biggest aquarium in the world located at the ward of port in Osaka, Japan. (Or so the guide book reports). There are 27 tanks with a total of 10, 941 tons of water featuring animals from the Pacific Ring of Fire area.  The largest tank is 9 meters deep and hold 5,400 cubic meters of water. 

Michael took these photos: 

This was a real sample of the giant Japanese salamander we'd seen at the museum in Tokyo. LOL

When Zander saw the advertisement in our hotel room he let us know he really, really wanted to take pictures of this whale shark....

At some point in our trip through the aquarium Zander left his camera sitting "somewhere." I love Japan. When we exited the building we stopped and asked at the info booth and it had already been turned in. 

I LOVED this feature. A big room filled with seats...what a great spot to sit and relax....and enjoy the fish.

By the time we left it was far to cold and windy to ride the ferris wheel. We did stop and grab dinner. I enjoyed the view of the port while we ate. 

We weren't able to see Kyoto. That's o.k. We DID see an awful lot of interesting spots.
