Kaiyu-kan Aquarium Half-day Tour


In this tour, you visit an aquarium which is one of  the biggest aquariums in Japan and enjoy a cruising around Osaka bay.  


Osaka has a harbor unlike Kyoto, a city in a basin. Being the center of water transportation in Japan, Osaka thrived as the biggest distribution center from the 17th century to 19th century. In this tour, you visit the Kaiyu-kan Aquarium which Osaka City boasts of, and enjoy the Santa Maria Cruise. The tour can be enjoyed by a wide range of people from the very young to the old.

◆(Kaiyu-kan Aquarium)
It is the big-sized aquarium at the sea-front of Osaka.  Established in 1990, it has always been popular with 620 kinds and 30000 of marine lives.  A shark-whale is swimming leisurely in a mammoth tank reproducing the Pacific Ocean.  It introduces marine lives in various areas around the Pacific and is said to have changed the aquariums in Japan with its epoch-making design.  It opens from 10 AM to 8 PM.

◆(Santa Maria Cruise)
It’s a sight-seeing boat with a sail, going around the Osaka Harbor from Tempo-san Port for 45 min.  It starts just at 11 AM, 12 PM and at every hour on the hour.  You can see a giraffe (crane) carrying big-sized containers from or to a huge ship.  It’s a reproduction twice as large as the one that Columbus was on when he crossed the Atlantic.

◆Tenpo-san Market Place
A commercial facility in Tenpo-san crowded with visitors enjoying the Kaiyu-kan Aquarium and Santa Maria Cruise.  There’re a lot of shops and restaurants in it.  It includes a corner around Ninja and a large Ferris-wheel.
