Osaka Aquarium

Ville bare lige vise jer nogle billeder fra det fine Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan i Japan, som vi besøgte tidligere på året. Jeg elsker den slags fiktive oaser, der giver et afbræk fra dagligdagen: zoologiske haver, biografer, museer, akvarier, forlystelsesparker og tivolier: bring it on!

Men det der først fik mig op ad stolen og overbeviste mig om, at her skulle vi da hen var denne sindssygt smukke video fra Okinawa Akvarium (se den med lyd!).

Da vi et par måneder senere befandt os i Japan havde min krøllede hjerne forvandlet Okinawa til Osaka. Men heldigvis har Osaka også et fabelagtigt akvarium. Akvariet ligger i et lidt øde og vindblæst havneområde helt ud til Osaka Bay, lige ved siden af Suntory Museet. Det er et af verdens største akvarier og et af de få, der har plads til de fascinerende og kæmpestore hvalhajer.

English: I just wanted to show you a few pictures from a place we visited earlier this year: the fabulous Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan in Japan. I love these kind of imaginary spaces; aquariums, zoos, theme parks, museums and cinemas – they all offer a wonderful and fantasy filled break from reality.

I first got really excited about the Aquarium when I stumbled upon this incredible video from Okinawa Aquarium (watch it with sound!).

By the time we arrived in Japan my weird brain had turned Okinawa into Osaka and I only realised my mistake when we came back and I watched the video again. Because luckily there’s an amazing aquarium in Osaka as well. It’s located in a harbour area, just next to the big Suntory Museum. Kaiyukan is one of the world’s biggest aquariums and one of the few that’s home to the fascinating huge whale sharks.
