We went back to our hotel to collect our luggage then back to the station for our train to Kansai International Airport.

We wanted to eat here but all their branches have long queues

We wanted to come back here for our dinner because the food is good. 

I came back for the Katsudon

Osaka Kaiyukan Aquarium

"The principal theme for establishment of the Osaka Aquarium KAIYUKAN was based on the Gaia hypothesis proposed by Dr. James Lovelock. The Gaia hypothesis is an ecological theory that the Earth with its many active volcanoes and all of its living creatures closely interact with each other to form, and function as, a single organism. Moreover, considering that there is considerable geographical overlap in the Pacific Ocean region between the Pacific Rim volcanic belt with frequent volcanic eruptions and an area characterized by rich biodiversity, the KAIYUKAN embodies the concepts of “the Ring of Fire” and “the Ring of Life” into all its exhibits."  (Taken from the website)

This aquarium was opened in May 1990

We started at the 8th floor and spiralled our way down
