Children will definitely enjoy Kaiyukan so I suggest you bring them there. I was kind of disappointed because I expected a lot. Sadly, it wasn’t the best aquarium I have seen. If I were to rank the aquariums that I have been to, I would definitely put Sydney first and Singapore second. Japan would be last. The only thing I liked about it was that I was able to touch a shark and a stingray but apparently my friend said that you can also do that in the Manila Ocean Park.

If you’re a first timer, then you should definitely do it.

I wasn’t able to ride both because I got lazy therefore I just took a picture with it.

  1. Dotonburi

How to get there? Ride the train to Namba station (M20)

Japan Railway System

I suggest you get down in Namba station and then keep walking until you see Dotonburi. You really won’t feel tired because you’ll be passing by a lot of shops. I ended up in Shinsaibashi.
