Kaiyukan is one of Japan’s most spectacular aquariums, world-renowned for its innovative presentation of aquatic animals in large tanks recreated natural environment, such as:
- Japan Forest
- Aleutian Island
- Monterey Bay
- Gulf of Panama
- Ecuador Rain Forest
- Tasman Sea
- Great barrier reef
- Pacific Ocean
- Seto Inland Sea
- Coast of Chile
- Cook Straight
- Icy, snow-clad Antarctica.
Easiest way from USJ going to Kaiyukan is via the shuttle ferry Captain Line. The Captain Line dock at the Universal City Port is about 5 minutes walk from USJ. Travel time from the Universal City Port to Kaiyukan would take another 10 minutes.

The long line of tourists queuing for Kaiyukan Entrance Tickets... so glad we bought ours at Captain Line boarding gates.
My youngest went wild talking photos and videos of the aquatic animals inside the park. He was amazed to see different extrinsic animals. This place is on top of my family's list in Osaka.
Here are some of the videos we took at Kaiyukan:
TIP: If you are coming from USJ, get the "Kaiyukan and Captain Line Economical Package" and save about Y300 on ticket prices. Also the ticket lines at the Kaiyukan gets pretty long and you would be happy to skip the ticket box queue.
