Japan Trip Day 5 (Universal Studio Osaka, Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan)

We took a train to Universal Studio Osaka! Previously, we travel together to Universal Studio Singapore for Mr Hubs birthday. Being the kiasu us, we wore slippers and ended up being the only 3 human beings in Osaka doing so. Nobody wears slipper outdoor there, not even the tourist!! Lesson learnt!




 Here are some pics for you to see. I will not share everything because it is best to see it with your own eyes. 

Anyway, we queued forever on the Harry Potter ride. After that, we felt like half the day is gone and drained of energy. If you really want to try all or most of the rides, it is best to purchase the express pass. Don't end up like us, only managed to take 2 rides out of the whole place.

By the time we came out of the second ride and bought some souvenirs, it is already evening time. So we decided to take a train to the Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan.



 Some sea creatures and the building itself.

This place is the most expensive entrance fee that we have paid throughout our trip (minus Universal Studio Osaka). It costs us 2300yen per person. It was worth it coz if I remembered correctly, there are 8 floors of sea animals.

This excerpt was taken from Wikipedia :
The walk-through aquarium displays marine life in several habitats comprising 27 tanks in 16 main exhibits with a total volume of 10,941 tons of water. The habitats are from the Ring of Fire area of the Pacific Ocean. The largest tank is 9 metres (30 ft) deep and holds 5,400 cubic metres (190,699 cu ft) of water and a variety of fish including manta raysand a whale shark.[4]
The tanks used in the aquarium are made of 314 tonnes (346 tons) of acrylic glass. The largest single pane measures six meters by five meters by thirty centimeters and weighs roughly 10 tons. At the thicknesses used, regular glass would be unwieldy and would not have the desired transparency.

We then walked around the neighbourhood in search of dinner. I think the number of people on the street around 8pm then was less than 10. So we opt for a small lil japanese diner for yakitori.



 Look so delish right?

We can't read Japanese so we took a pic of the restaurant's name just in case if anyone wants to go give it a try. It is on the way back to the train station so you won't miss it.
