OSAKA AQUARIUM KAIYUKAN
Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan is one of the largest aquariums in the world. It is located in the ward of Minato in Osaka, Japan, near the Osaka Bay. Tempozan Harbor Village is a name of area revolving around Kaiyukan, where an Ocean-vessel terminal is located on the north side, Giant Ferris Wheel and Marketplace including Naniwa Kuishinbo Yokocho on the east side, and Suntory Museum and Hotel Seagull on the west side.

The walk-through aquarium displays several habitats in 14 tanks, along with the marine life inside them. The habitats are from the Ring of Fire and the Ring of Life areas of the Pacific Ocean. The largest tank holds 5,400 cubic metres of water and houses a whale shark. The tanks used in the aquarium are made of 314 tonnes of acrylic - roughly 1.5 times the world's annual production. The largest single pane measures six meters by five meters by thirty centimeters and weighs roughly 10 tonnes. At the thicknesses used, regular glass would not only be unwieldy, but would not have a desirable amount of transparency.

Kaiyukan Aquarium has selected 15 regions along the Ring of Fire (Pan Pacific Volcanic Zone), and reproduced the bountiful nature and various creatures mainly living in the Pacific Ocean. The capacity of 11,000 tons of water is the world's top-class volume. The aquarium exhibits numerous creatures including fishes, plants, invertebrate animals, batrachians, reptiles, birds, and mammals. The main creatures displayed in this aquarium are Whale Shark, Ocean Sunfish, Sea Otter, King Pengium, Pacific White-sided Dolphin, Sea Lion and Harbor Sea.
