You’ve never seen animals as round as these seals! The three seals featured in this book, Arare-chan, Yuki-chan, and Moya-kun, live peacefully in Kaiyukan, an aquarium in Osaka, Japan. There, they have charmed visitors, including photographer Chiho Kuwada, with their chubby, round bodies and smiley faces. Kuwada started taking photos of the three seals in 2018. Her photos show the seals swimming leisurely looking relaxed, asking for food with their cute round eyes, sleeping adorably like round balloons, etc. This book showcases a selection of the best shots of Arare-chan, Yuki-chan, and Moya-kun from Chiho Kuwada’s huge photo collection in an appealing small, square format. Full of roly-poly round seal pictures, this charming little book is the perfect gift for your friends, family and loved ones.
About Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan
Kaiyukan accurately recreates the natural environments of our planet, particularly the vast Pacific Ocean—the world’s largest body of water—with a special emphasis on the Ring of Fire and the Ring of Life. The Arctic Circle exhibit features low, chest-height acrylic panels to help the visitor get a more realistic experience of the habitat of the ringed seal, including factors such as the actual temperature of the region as well as its sounds, such as crackling ice .
