Churaumi Aquarium
美ら海水族館

MAPCODE 553 075 743

Okinawa Churami Aquarium is one of the largest aquariums in the world, and is highly regarded as one of the best aquariums of the eastern hemisphere. The highlight of your visit to Churami Aquarium is the massive Kuroshio Tank, one of the largest in the world. In Drive Japan and as Tourism experts we usually highlight the beauty of hidden natural gems. We still recommend this aquarium with a strong 5 stars rank which shows how incredible it is.

The extent to which this aquarium is unique and beautiful is hard to communicate, even with pictures. You really have to be there to believe what you are seeing. The enormous breathtaking windows at the aquarium are a whopping 8.2 m high, and house whale sharks, stingrays, migratory fish, and many other sea creatures. It is also the first aquarium in the world to succeed in raising and breeding manta alfredi, one of the largest species of ray and more recently a Tiger Shark. Regarding the events organised, be sure that you will find at least one you won't want to miss. It goes from dolphins to sea turtles or even manatees. If we recommend an Aquarium with so much convictions it is because it is truly amazing and will remain among one of your best experiences in Okinawa.
