There are a lot of eye-catching buildings in Japan, for example, universal studio Japan in Osaka and Tokyo Tower in Tokyo, Kinkakuji in Kyoto and so on. I chose Osaka Kaiyukan. It is one of the biggest aquariums in Japan. Therefore, it is a famous place in Japan. Why is this aquarium becoming popular?
Firstly, I would like to tell you about Kaiyukan. The Official name is the Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan. It is an aquarium located in the ward of Minato in Osaka, Japan. It is one of the largest public aquariums in the world, and is a member of the Japanese Association of Zoos and Aquariums (JAZA). In 1990, the Kaiyukan comprises more than 15 tanks that hold some 400 species of marine life. Its principal theme is based on James Lovelock’s Gaia principle, which states that there exists an interaction between living organisms and its surroundings, and that it forms a complex balancing system that regulates the conditions of life on Earth. The aquarium also emphasizes the fact that within the Pacific Ocean, the regions with the most active volcanic activity coincide with the areas where there is rich biodiversity. (Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan, 2005) I think that Kaiyukan expresses wonders of the Japanese sea. Many Japanese people are proud of having Kaiyukan.
Next, I focused on the features of Kaiyukan. They could create big water tanks by using special grass which made of acrylic in order to see good view and entertain lots of customers. There are lots of kinds of fish there. Especially, there are two whale sharks which are rare in the biggest water tank. They are symbols in Kaiyukan. Almost all people gather in Kaiyukan in order to see them. In addition, staff in Kaiyukan could succeed in raising Vanellus spinosus in 1993 for the first time in Japan. As a result, through showing them, Kaiyukan has been getting more and more visitors. Actually, when I visited there, I felt wonders in Japanese aquarium. I think development of Kaiyukan could be related to revolution of Japanese aquarium. It would be good trend toward Japanese society.
Finally, I researched the secret of its popularity. The reason why it is one of the largest public aquariums in the world is many visitors can see lots of kinds of fish in a near-natural environment. According to the official site of Kaiyukan, it is one of the date spots for couples so that it has a good and wonderful environment, which makes us happy and calm. Also, there is a big Ferries wheel near Kaiyukan, whose illumination brightness at night. Therefore, it is popular for a lot of couples and family. In addition, it is a huge and attractive aquarium, so many reporters gather there in order to broadcast the new information such as upcoming events or new fish and animals.
In conclusion, Kaiyukan is one of the eye-catching buildings, because they have some good points which the others don’t have. Actually, I have been to Kaiyukan recently. When I went there, I could see two whale sharks in the same water tank, and globefish in another water tank. I was fascinated with them. They are rare. I am sure Kaiyukan makes you happy. You should go there.
