There's lots to see! Sightseeing and leisure spots in Tempozan

The Osaka Bay Area has several artificial islands, including Yumeshima, where the 2025 Osaka-Kansai Expo will be held, as well as Maishima and Sakishima, and is lined with a variety of facilities and tourist attractions.

Among them, the Tempozan area, which has many attractive spots such as the Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan and the Ferris wheel, is called "Tempozan Harbor Village" and is a complex amusement facility where you can have fun. Here is some tourist information for Tempozan, which is fun no matter how many times you visit!

Kaiyukan, the world's largest aquarium where whale sharks swim

The Kaiyukan is an aquarium representing Japan and boasts an overwhelming scale.

The whale shark, the symbol of Kaiyukan, is majestic and has a striking presence! In addition, 620 other species and 30,000 other sea creatures live at Kaiyukan.

If you want to get a closer look at the marine life, you can't miss the various guided tours, where you can watch the zookeepers feeding the animals and giving them training, and the "meal time for the animals."

After 5pm, the lights in the aquarium are dimmed, transforming it into "Kaiyukan at Night." The faint light shining into the ocean and the swaying waves are a very romantic sight, and we highly recommend it!

Kaiyukan Official Shop (Kaiyukan Entrance Building 3rd floor)

This is a shop that is only open to visitors who have entered the building. It is lined with exclusive products that can only be found at official shops, such as collaborations with stationery and tenugui brands.

You can purchase tickets from the following page:
