We continue admiring underwater world in Aquarium Kayukan (Osaka. Aquarium Kayukan. P.1). Here's remora fish, which was brazenly riding on a stingray. I filmed several videos. They are almost the same, so you can watch any of them. Or all of them. Honestly, I was driven mad, I stuck to...
This is Nishi - the port district in the west of Osaka. There's Tenpozan Harbor Village with a Ferris wheel, a small park, shops, and a museum. And right on the waterfront, there is one of the world's largest aquariums (Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan) with an area of 26.570 square meters. Frankly...
I continue walking in Universal Studios ( Universal Studios Japan. P.1 ). Finally I got to Waterworld: A Live Sea War Spectacular. This is Water World, after the movie with Kevin Costner, do you remember it? It is one of my favorite shows at Universal. Performance is held just three...
I've already visited one Universal Studios, it was in Hollywood. Park cut me to the heart, it's even cooler than Disneyland! When I was in Osaka, I could not miss the opportunity to plunge into this magical world once again! I visited it on Monday that was very wise, as it's not recommended to...

It is called Osaka-jo in Japanese. So we should go to the subway station called Osaka-jo koen or Osaka-jo kitazume, and then - 10 minutes on foot. You can also get to the Morinomiya station of the JR Loop line, but then you'll have to go a little longer. Or the same 10...
Minami district has a narrow street called Dotombori. There are a lot of small restaurants, cafes, shops, and hotels. And there is the famous entertainment area called Amerikamura. Swanky boys and dressed up girls gather here in the evening to hang out in bars and clubs...
After Shitenno-ji and Sumiyoshi Taisha (Osaka. Sumiyoshi Taisha), we decided to take a break from attractions and just walk around the center. We got out from the subway, saw a lot of people all around, the traffic is blocked, the music is screaming, someone is beating the...
Sumiyoshi Taisha is located in the southern part of Osaka. The guidebook says that it is a "standard for architects of Shinto shrines and ancient palace constructions". We went down to the subway and asked the employee in the uniform about how to get there. We had to pass a couple of...
