Churaumi Aquarium

I have been procastinating this post for a long time; in fact, the pictures were taken with my old Fuji S9000. I had almost forgotten about them, and then I saw this extraordinary audivisual work by my friend Chris Willson and I started to search through my old photo archives from Okinawa.

Churaumi Aquarium (“churaumi” means “beautilful sea” in Okinawan language) is the second largest aquarium in the world, the most impressive part is the main water tank (which in fact is the number 1 in the world). In this huge tank swim with some “liberty” two enormous whale sharks along with dozens of giant manta rays and many other different fish. It seems all of them get along pretty well :). One of the other things that I enjoyed in the aquarium was having the possibility to touch the starfish they had in another tank.

If you visit Okinawa don’t miss the Churaumi Aquarium. It is located to the west of Nago.
