[Osaka, Japan] ~ Meters down at Kaiyukan

When you can’t go around the world, go (up) around an aquarium first  – 10.03.15

Closest I could get to sea during this trip was at the bay area where encountered many kinds of fish in an aquarium as big as a building best enjoyed by spiraling down eight floors of giant tanks. Though I wish one day I could swim with you in the open sea, sight between you and who-knows-how-thick glass was enough to make me all this panicky taking as many pictures as I could, my favorites shared as you click more.

Someone else is curious you see

And then they were many

And these giant sweethearts just kept on jumping in and out of water

And these creatures kill with colors

Another failed attempt

Boom. This one was just too cute

This giant caught these boys’ curiosity

But he/she is not that adorable from this angle though

Saying goodbye to the tank

Outside the tank is this place for opportunity to touch the sting rays and some shark shells
