The Kuroshio Sea

In Okinawa, you can find the second largest tank in the world, the Kuroshio Aquarium. “The main tank called the ‘Kuroshio Sea’ holds 7,500-cubic meters (1,981,290 gallons) of water and features the world’s second largest acrylic glass panel, measuring 8.2 meters by 22.5 meters with a thickness of 60 centimeters. Whale sharks and manta rays are kept amongst many other fish species in the main tank.”

Watching the footage above almost brought me to tears (but I think that cheesy song had something to do with it), there’s a certain magic to it. It’s a beautiful sight. I’m sure it’d be even more incredible up close in person! ( ; w;)
