Tempozan Harbor Village

We took a little mini trip to Tempozan Harbor Village in Osaka. We went to the Aquarium Kaiyukan (which is one of the largest in the world.. nbd) spent a couple hours admiring japanese fishy's, spider crabs (ew!), jellyfish, penguins & giant sharks. There were a few fish that I'd never seen before in my life & were extremely interesting, however, I feel like once you've been to an aquarium, you've been to them all. This one just had a little Japanese twist on it. Super high & it just winds you down, down, down... Pretty cool.

Afterwards, Ty took us on the Tempozan Ferris Wheel! It's freakin' huge. It was about a 20 minute ride around & it takes you up to view the city as far as the mountains on one side, ocean on the other. Tyler is afraid of heights (it's true! the big guy!), so he didn't look out much haha. Oh! This is for my Harry Potter fans... there is a Universal Studios here in Osaka & they have Hogwarts!! AND I could see it from the Ferris Wheel! Talk about getting me giddy like a 9yr old! Ty said he will take us when the air gets a little cooler (october maybe.. my birthday?) & I can not wait!

once again, these pictures were taken with my iphone
sorry about the quality & lighting!
