Osaka Kaiyukan (Aquarium)
Pirarucu (Arapaima gigas). Equador rainforest tank.
Finally! I finally visited the Osaka Aquarium last Sunday. I absolutely love the place. The price is a bit steep but it is worth every penny. There are sixteen tanks, the largest of which is the Pacific Ocean tank which houses the great whale shark. Below are the photos taken at the aquarium. For more photos, please visit my flickr album.
