Okinawa Churaumi Aquarium – Photo & Video Journey 2015

The Churaumi Aquarium – which is named for “chura,” or the Okinawan word for “beautiful/graceful,” and “umi,” the Japanese word for “ocean” – is part of the Ocean Expo Park in Okinawa. It was once the largest aquarium in the world, until 2005.

TripAdvisor review:

“Best aquarium in Japan: Great location, beautiful design, stunning central tank. The drive up from south/central Okinawa is a chance to see local attractions, experience authentic food and demonstrate your knowledge of Japanese driving laws. Once on site, the extensive parking, wide open design and neighboring beach park will provide half a day or more of fun for any family.” – HokkaidoG from Hokkaido
