NIFREL In Osaka, Japan: A Unique Aquazoo Experience

NIFREL In Osaka, Japan: A Unique Aquazoo Experience

What exactly is NIFREL in Osaka, Japan? Is it a zoo? Is it an aquarium?

To answer the question, NIFREL is an aquazoo – a unique combination of an aquarium, a zoo and some would say a museum too. This interactive, family-friendly attraction is located at EXPOCITY in North Osaka, Japan. It is part of the larger complex which includes the LaLaPort Shopping Mall and VS Park.

NIFREL’s different zones are set over two floors. The exhibits have been thoughtfully organised based on themes such as Colors, Abilities, Shapes, Behaviour and Biodiversity.

Colors, Shapes and Abilities

Colors at NIFRELColors is a showcase of the brilliant colours found in the natural world.

Prawn at NIFREL13 tanks of aquatic life with vivid reds, orange and blue creatures attract the eye.

Abilities zone at NIFRELThe next zone, Abilities, is also one of the most fascinating.

Doctor fishHere, you can try having sticking your finger into a pool of water to feed a swarm of doctor fish.

Archer fish display at NIFREL, Osaka, JapanThere is also an innovative set up where you can watch archer fish shooting bullets of water out of the tank at prey suspected above.

ShapesShapes is a particularly atmospheric zone within NIFREL. The exhibits have been interestingly presented to highlight the beauty of individual animals.

Wonder MomentsBridging the first and second floors of the aquazoo is Wonder Moments, a dazzling multimedia show by by artist Takahiro Matsuo. It is projected on to a globe and kids absolutely love it.
