Everyone’s Talking About This Phenomenal Aquarium. I’m In Pure Awe.
Jon Rawlinson is a filmmaker who specializes in documentary and commercial production. He shot this video at the Okinawa Churaumi Aquarium at the main tank called Kuroshio Sea. It’s the 2nd largest aquarium tank in the world. The tank holds 7,500-cubic meters or 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.
The song playing is “Please Don’t Go” by Barcelona.
Here are some of the comments Jon received from people after viewing his video:

I believe that all animals and sea creatures belong in their natural habitat so I was reluctant to post this. But after watching, I couldn't help but be in awe of it. It's so peaceful to watch.
