Okinawa Churaumi Aquarium

This weekend we decided to go to the 3rd largest aquarium IN THE WORLD! We have been wanting to go but granted we have been super busy with settling in and also this aquarium is about an hour away from us, we finally got to visit this weekend. Honestly, this place did not disappoint. It was a little pricey to be in Japan, ¥1800 to be exact, but it was so worth it. Aside from the fish showcasing, there was a dolphin show at the end of the aquarium and I got to feed them! We were most excited for the whale sharks, we had never seen one. They actually have 3 whale sharks in the aquarium, these creatures were beautiful. We decided that for this post we would just let the pictures speak for themselves. Enjoy!

The picture below was a great white shark exhibit where you can pull the different parts out and see what is going on, on that body part of the shark.
