The Kid Should See This

Kuroshio Sea – 2nd largest aquarium tank in the world

Kuroshio Sea is the main tank at Okinawa Churaumi Aquarium, on the Japanese island of Okinawa. When this video, shot by Jon Rawlinson and scored to Please Don’t Go by Barcelona, first went viral three years ago, the kid and I were both mesmerized while watching it. 

The gigantic tank, which has a volume capacity of 7,500 cubic meters, affords views from multiple directions, for example, from the Aqua Room and through the large acrylic window. Only here can you enjoy the sight of never-before-seen groups of whale sharks and manta rays swimming in the ocean…

There are three whale sharks at the aquarium, the largest of which is named Jinta. Jinta which were transported into our Aquarium in March 1995, holds the world record for longest time kept in captivity now.

If you haven’t seen this yet, be sure to go full screen.
