Osaka Aquarium 「海遊館 」

For those of you who are fascinated by marine species, Osaka Aquarium is definitely a must. One of the biggest aquariums on Earth, features manta rays and even a whale shark! Which is more of a ray than a shark, as it has no jaws and lives on plankton. The more I dive, the less I like artificial environments for the large pelagic species. Still, it is good to bring children and educate them on sharks NOT being the assassin they appear to be in movies. Seriously, if you scare of your kid with silly stories, he will end up eating shark fin soup :_( Anyway, a nice place to spend a couple of hours in a chilly March afternoon.

Para los nerds de las especies marinas, el acuario de Osaka es visita obligada. Uno de los más grandes del mundo, contiene en su tanque principal especies tan fascinantes y complejas de vet buceando como el tiburón ballena, el tiburón martillo, varios tipos de rayas (stinger ray, eagle ray) y algún tiburón más pequeño (shark reef, both grey & blacktip) que animan la escena. Una buena forma de invertir una fría tarde de Marzo :)
