Japan : Trip to Kansai 海遊館

En français
In the afternoon, we went to 海遊館 (Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan), one of the largest aquarium in the world. They have 29000 animals from 470 different species. It is so big that they even have manta rays and a pair of whale sharks and several dolphins. A whale shark can measure 12.65 meters at most and weight 36 tonnes, those in the aquarium were of course smaller but still really impressive.
The aquarium is extended over several floors and finished with a museum part where you can even pet rays and shares. We went out to see the Christmas illuminations in front of it.
