Okinawa Churaumi Aquarium

The Okinawa Churaumi Aquarium is a popular classic tourist spot in Okinawa!
By using one of the world’s largest water tanks, the Okinawa Churaumi Aquarium is famous for boasting the world’s first success in housing and raising multiple whale sharks and giant oceanic manta rays.

The “Chura” of “Churaumi Aquarium” means “beautiful” in Okinawan dialect. As the name suggests, the Churaumi Aquarium strives to faithfully reproduce the beauty of Okinawa’s ocean from the water’s surface to a depth of 700 meters by maintaining light, water quality, transparency, and more as close to nature as possible.
