Taking photos in aquariums is the hardest thing in the world. Mainly because I couldn't get the lighting right, I didn't have a tripod and my camera decided to commit suicide half way through.

Apart from that, my visit to Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan was pretty epic. It's one of the largest in the world, and the best I've visited. It focuses on The Ring of Fire and The Ring of Life, it has 27 tanks and 16 main exhibits, the largest tank is 90ft deep and holds 5400 cubic metres of water. It hands down shits on Sydney Aquarium. Did I mention they have massive manta rays and a whale shark. Awesome right?

Osaka was the last leg of our Japan trip. I ate awesome ramen for dirt cheap via vending machine type restaurants. I also was able to meet up with my old London work mate, Kazuki. We had dinner and drank at an English pub, which felt like old times.

I was so sad leaving Japan, it really is an amazing place. But New York and New Orleans was ahead of us.

Beautiful photo's still, though! If get away from my mid life crisis, I would just go and set free. I MIGHT go back to london this year, so the tips you were talking about please tell me! :D
