Okinawa Churaumi Aquarium

 

The Okinawa Churaumi Aquarium is located within the Ocean Expo Commemorative National Government Park in Okinawa, Japan.
The aquarium is four stories with tanks containing deep sea creatures, sharks, coral and tropical fish. They have 33,000 living animals approximately including over 400 sharks and rays. It is also famous for the name of Largest Acrylic Panel.
Total land of the aquarium is about 5 acres and 77 tanks containing 2,700,000 gal of water. Saltwater is pumped into the aquarium from 380 yard offshore 24 hours a day.
Whale sharks and manta rays are living together with many other fish varieties in Kuroshio Sea. I was so surprised when I saw the whale sharks. They are so huge! I’ve never seen big fish, like the whale sharks.
Please check them out if you go to the Okinawa Churaumi Aquarium.
