I Want To Go To There: The Kuroshio Sea

If you're feeling bogged down by your week take four minutes for yourself and watch this video. It's footage from the Kuroshio Sea, the world's second largest aquarium (the largest is the Georgia Aquarium) in Okinawa, Japan.

The Kuroshio Sea holds 7,500-cubic meters (1,981,290 gallons) of water and features the world's second largest acrylic glass panel, measuring 8.2 meters by 22.5 meters with a thickness of 60 centimeters. Whale sharks and manta rays are kept amongst many other fish species in the main tank.
