The Okinawa Churaumi Aquarium
(沖縄美ら海水族館, Okinawa Churaumi Suizokan?), located within the Ocean Expo Commemorative National Government Park in Okinawa, Japan. It is the world's second largest aquarium, behind the Georgia Aquarium in Atlanta, and welcomed its 20 millionth visitor on 30 March 2010.

The aquarium is a member of the Japanese Association of Zoos and Aquariums (JAZA).

In 1975, the World's Exposition or World's Fair was held in Okinawa, Japan at the Ocean Expo Park. Afterward, the park began to lose tourism and it was believed that a new aquarium would help revive the area and celebrate Okinawa's Marine tradition. The aquarium was designed by Yukifusa Kokuba and was opened on 1 November 2002.

"Churaumi" was selected as the name of the aquarium by public vote amongst Japanese people. "Chura" means "beautiful" or "graceful" in the Okinawan dialect, and "umi" means "ocean".
