    Do you like marine life or sea? If so, you definetely also like aquariums. Just don’t get shocked by this Japanese biggest aquarium, which is located in Okinawa, Japan. It is called “Churaumi Aquarium”.

    “Churaumi Aquarium” is well known as the best aquarium in Japan. Why do I recommend this aquarium to you?I do so because there is a massive Kuroshio Tank in there. Kuroshio Tank is one of the largest tanks in the world.It is a well known thing that the name of this aquarium originates from the name of nowadays ocean current in Okinawa’s marine life, which is called Kuroshio Current.
    So, how big exactly is it? I cannot say, but it is massive, the size of the window alone is 8.2m x 22.5m

    There are 3 huge whales, lot of of manta rays, and the other marine life inside the Kuroshio Tank,
    You can get the idea from this picture. I have taken this photo last year, when I visited it.

    So, how is it? What do you think? Quite impressive, right?
    As I said before, this tank is the best part about visiting “Churaumi Aquarium” in Okinawa, Japan. It is truly incredible.

    Play with critters and see sharks

    Not only that, on the first floor, directly in from of the entrance, you can also get some interesting experience. There is a pool where visitors can touch living starfish and seashells with their bare hands. At that time I was there, I have also had touched the starfish and seashells, it was very exciting.

    There are also some tanks which have a lot of sharks inside of them. I don’t know why, but when I looked at that tank, I felt some fear around it. I think it is because of the darkness of the tanks, well, and the sharks too. You can get a good idea from this photo, which was also taken by me when I went there.

    Isn’t it scary? lol
