Japanese yen for children it is a bit expensive but if you have an Osaka amazing

  5. Wahhhh u made the video !! This aquarium is sooo interesting!! I like this aquarium very much.. must go if travelling to osaka!!

  6. Thank you for this video. Was thinking whether is it worth the trip to go there. After watching your video, I would definitely go there. Seems interesting and beautiful. Keep on making great videos.

  7. Was here a couple of weeks ago. It is nice to explore this area ^-^ Love the Ferris Wheel because we can see the whole area

  8. Rion, I love all your vlogs except this one. I cannot support animals placed in captivity particularly dolphins and that giant whale! Documentaries like The Cove and Blackfish are eye-openers.

  9. A lot of places children must be accompanied by adults. For LegoLand however, adults must be accompanied by children. I tried going in alone. It's not allowed…

  10. Rion the lion,Osaka aquarium 'Kaiyukan' is another great place to visit in Osaka.I will choose bus for my transportation to Osaka aquarium Kaiyukan.I like the tunnel full with fish because its looks like we live under the water. .Even you can touch Stingray fish, the smell must be so stinky.'High Phobia ', now I know your weakness😆🎡.Anywhere, enjoy your beautiful weekend.

  11. Dear Rion San , I went to Osaka Aquarium on 12th this month , so I didn’t manage to watch your video in advance because u just post on 14th .
    I managed to eat the yakitori you recommended for 298 yen at opposite the street not far from aquarium. And I did order the types you recommended in one of your Osaka food video. It was yummy.
    Thanks 🙏🏻 .
    P/S: I am now in Tokyo . 😀

  12. hi Rion
    i'll be back in japan this february with my brother mitchell and sister in law carly
    awesome to be back watching your videos again!
    love them all

  13. Hi Rion!
    Thanks for making another great video 🙂 Can you kindly recommend any good places to buy Osechi Ryori for around ~10000yen in the downtown Osaka area? Thanks again!

  14. I agree with the people complaining about animals in captivity, however, I cannot personally break them out so I might as well go and see them

  15. Can I ask you one question? What is the orchestra music that they were playing in the Pacific Ocean Habitat with the Whale Sharks and all? Like did Kaiyukan get an orchestra band to create the song for their exhibit? Because for months I've been trying to find the song that they were playing and I wanted to download it. Like I tried searching up for Osaka Aquarium Ost or something like that but couldn't get a result, I tried looking up videos on the Osaka Aquarium videos with the song that they were playing and tried to Shazam it but it didn't work because of some of the crowd noise and all.

  16. Hi Rion, i am heading to Osaka first week of March, and quiet concerned about the coronavirus outbreak. Is there a lot of tourist from China in Kaiyukan? What time is best to avoid crowds (morning or night)?

    Also, do you know how the crowd is for USJ? The crowd calendar shows that it will be least crowded during first week of March, but i am just concerned if there will be many tourist from China even during low season.
    Thank you in advance.
