Marina Sunrise Osaka Bay is really close to Osaka Kaiyukan - the world's largest aquarium, it's also very convenient to access to Universal Studios by ferry in just only 10 minutes.
Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan
Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan (海遊館, Kaiyūkan) is located in the Tempozan Harbor Village of Osaka's bay area, and is one of Japan's most spectacular aquariums. It introduces various forms of life inhabiting the Pacific Rim in a well organized and impressive way.
The aquarium is organized into 15 zones which represent different environments around the Pacific Rim and houses 30,000 animals representing 620 different species. The 15 zones are arranged in a descending spiral that starts with the “Japan Forest” area and descends down to the “Pacific Ocean” level where you can view a huge 9 meter deep, and 34 meter long fish tank which is home to a variety of species including the world’s largest fish, the whale shark.
The Tempozan Ferris Wheel
No trip to Tempozan Harbor Village would be complete without a ride on the enormous Tempozan Ferris Wheel, which at 112.5 meters high and 100 meters across, is one of the world’s biggest Ferris wheels. A ride on the wheel gives super dramatic views over Osaka bay. The wheel is also illuminated each night in colors which signify the next day’s weather forecast, red means the next day will be sunny, green means it will be cloudy and blue means it is going to rain! The wheel is open from 10.00 – 22.00 and last entry is at 21.30. Tickets for the Tempozan Ferris Wheel are 800 yen.
Universal Studios Japan
Universal Studios Japan (USJ) was the first theme park under the Universal Studios brand to be built in Asia. Opened in March 2001 in the Osaka Bay Area, the theme park occupies an area of 39 hectares and is the most visited amusement park in Japan after Tokyo Disney Resort.
In addition to rides, the theme park offers many opportunities to take pictures with popular characters' mascots such as Snoopy, Hello Kitty and the Muppets. There are also various shows put on every day, including a night parade featuring illuminated floats that are paraded through the streets.
Naniwa food theme park
Naniwa Kuishinbo Yokocho is a food theme park located within the Tempozan Marketplace shopping mall. At Naniwa Kuishinbo Yokocho, you can choose from a large variety of local Osaka cuisine, offered by 20 or so small but excellent restaurants, while enjoying the nostalgic setting inspired by the rough-and-ready neighborhoods of 1960s Osaka. Naniwa is the old name for Osaka. Kuishinbo means “gourmand,” and yokocho means “alley.” In Osaka, traditionally nicknamed “the country’s kitchen,” or the “town where people eat their way to ruin,” it is only expected that the food tastes good; the food has to be both good and affordably priced to satisfy the demanding palates and tight purse strings of the typical Osakan. This culture has turned Osaka into a magnet for food and food ingredients from across the country, and has made Osaka home to a rich array of excellent cuisine
