the big blue

The Okinawa Churaumi Aquarium has been one of the best in the world and Kyoto now has just opened a new aquarium 2 weeks ago! The Kyoto Aquarium is the first large scale aquarium that is constructed in the inner continental rather than near the ocean. The 'tank' is huge and nearly 2 storey deep which supports a wide array of marine animals and organisms. There is penguin zone, dolphin area to many other specialized zones showing the magic of the sea world.
