Lonely Planet review

Osaka Aquarium is easily one of the best aquariums in the world and it's well worth a visit. A walkway winds its way past displays of life found on different ocean levels around the Pacific's 'ring of fire' region, from Antarctic penguins to coral-reef Butterflyfish to unearthly jellyfish from the deep. Most impressive is the enormous central tank, which houses a whale shark and manta, among a huge variety of other fish and rays. There are good English explanations throughout. Not surprisingly, this is a very popular attraction, especially with families and school groups.
