"EXPOCITY" is Japan's largest composite facility that opened in 2015 in Suita city, Osaka

"EXPOCITY" has become one of the most popular entertainment spot in Osaka, welcoming many visitors ever since its opening.

In the large-scale composite facility, there are commercial facilities starting from "La La Port EXPOCITY," to the nation's largest Ferris-Wheel called "OSAKA WHEEL," and also Children's favorite "POKEMON EXPO GYM", counting 8 large-scale entertainment facilities. Introduced here is the very popular spot "NIFREL" among these facilities in EXPOCITY.

NIFREL is produced by Osaka's KAIYUKAN,and it is a new type of aquarium that did not exist before.

"Why didn"t it exist before?"

Because it is not an ordinary aquarium but it is a new sensational place where an aquarium and a zoo merge with artistic creations.

The concept NIFREL presents is "Touching One's Sensitivity."
It is a place where persons of all ages- from children to adults- would enjoy and be excited once they step in.

NIFREL facility is divided into 7 zones, and in every zone, we can experience the new "feel" that we can not experience at an ordinary aquariums or zoos.

One of the most popular is the zone where we can go very close to and touch the animals,
It is truly a new world without cages where various animals live together sharing a habitat.

Other zones are very sensational in the way they display with the creative, artistic qualities.
You may experience the healing power from the mystical and beautiful scenery.

In addition, NIFREL may be interpreted as an aquarium, but there are larger animals only seen at zoos such as white tigers and alligators, which can be viewed very closely.

Such popular NIFREL is conveniently located near "Banpaku Kinen Koen" station. Re-entering is allowed, so you can enjoy other facilities in EXPOCITY for the entire day.

Introducing here is the detailed information about this new sensational NIFREL where people of all ages can enjoy, including the highlights, congestion situation, ticket purchasing, and more.
