The aquarium that proudly ranks as the world's largest
Go through the tunnel tank first, and up to the top floor "Japan Forest". Then, make your way down the slope past tanks reproducing various regions of the pan-Pacific zone, before moving on to the main, humongous "Pacific Ocean" tank. In the world's largest water tank with a maximum width of 34 m and depth of 9 m, large rays and sharks glide through the water. In the new "Interactive Exhibit" area, you get to see rockhopper penguins and seals up close.
