We made time today for the Osaka Aquarium (Kaiyukan) today... it's just therapeutic to just sit at the awesome display area and watch the fishes.. the layout of the aquarium is children & people friendly, with lotsa seats @ the largest tank which houses 2 whale sharks and a host of other Pacific ocean fishes

Frankly, I wish that if ever I go diving in those regions I won't meet up with any of the fishes coz their sizes are just simply colossal! The manta ray is so huge that I just sat down and stare and admire how graceful it is in the water...

Anyway, I didn't really shoot much in the premises but here's some Jellyfishes to share:

At night, we decided to try something different for dinner.. we blindly ventured into the back alleys of Dotonburi and Nipponbashi to look for good food and found this authentic Japanese 居酒屋 and ordered whatever we thought it is on the only-Japanese menu.. hahhah.. turned out to be the best dinner we ever had so far in Japan! We had the Sashimi Moriawase that is so exquistely presented that we couldn't bear to eat (but we did lah!), a Tai (Sea bream) kamamese, Yasai Tempura... and some small items which we have no idea what they are till they are presented.. haha.. that's what we like about travelling.. just being adventurous!

Thaks for sharing... lovely colours.....

Jellyfishes are just a fascination to watch the whole day lor... really beautiful and yet so deadly..

these were taken with?

heheh.. 5D with the 16-35mm

居酒屋 is where men go to eat and drink after work? those we see on jap shows?

if our nihongo cannot make it, easy to order?

jellyfish.. yum yum! :p


yupz.. 居酒屋 or Izakaya is a local hang-out place for locals but its culture and openness have attracted foreigners and tourists like us to flock to them for a taste of how locals relax and socialise with each other after a hard day's work.

In fact, more Izakayas are having English menus or pictures already so even if you don't a word of Nihon-go, you still can just point or word the English. Just that have to be very patient coz they are trying to understand you so give very clear indications and finger gestures :D

It's pretty easy to order lah... just look for familiar chinese characters lor but it will help immensely if you can speak and understand a little Jap :)


hahaha.. I don't think you want to eat these jellyfish.....

These pics look like they are straight out of National Geographic!

DD loves to snap jellies at the aquarium too -- they're just so beautiful with the colours in the light...
