Japan Day 8: Mihama American Village And Shuri Castle, Okinawa
Churaumi Aquarium is homed to one of the largest tank in the world (Kuroshio Tank) and contains of wide variety of species, including the three giant whale sharks and manta rays. I could just stand there for hours watching those big fishes swim by and whenever the three of them pop up at the same time on the glass window, it was amazing.
You can actually make your own way to aquarium by bus that takes about 2 hours journey. However, in more convenient way, we chose a day trip tour that include aquarium entrance fee, Pineapple Park (my apologies, I forgot to attach pictures from this park) and Ryukyu Glass Village. Hassel free and we just need to make our own way to the bus terminal. The tour costs 4,800yen. Depart 8 in the morning and back just before 5pm.
