We walked over to the port area in the early morning (planing later to eat at the Red Lobster for an early lunch) when we stumbled across this very nice aquarium... a mini Sea World. Very clean with an interesting layout. The whales and penguins...More

The highlight of this aquarium definitely has to be the orcas and belugas. The size and magnitude of these creatures were breath-taking. The aquarium also has dolphins, penguins, jellyfishes. The orca training was done in the 2 smaller pools behind the large main pool and...More

Different highlights compared to osaka kaiyukan aquarium. This one has great dolphins show, Belunga feeding and orca training show. Pluses: dolphins show, less crowded, great outdoor view (ocean), penguins. Minuses: not so many type of fish, less English sign/explanatory. Estimated duration: 3-4 hours. Still recommend...More

Disappointed actually, not enough space for the whales and very little information was in English so unless you are fluent in Japanese I personally wouldn’t go, although the dolphins are very intelligent and worth seeing!

I enjoy zoos and aquariums when they're done right, but unfortunately this aquarium leaves a lot to be desired. - The killer whales and belugas don't have enough space at all. It was heartbreaking to see. - Some of their dolphins originate from Taiji and...More

The public aquarium is a fun day out for kids but nothing out of the ordinary. The main attractions are the enormous killer whales and the dolphins which do regular shows throughout the day. The shows are fun but the tanks are small and you...More

Lots for both adults and kids to see and learn. They have beluga whales, orcas, dolphins and some interesting species that I've not seen elsewhere. The Aquarium is probably quite old but extremely well maintained. They have touch pools and dolphin shows as well.

Having been to Osaka's Kaiyukan Aquarium, I was expecting more of the same here. However, this aquarium is more akin to SeaWorld than Kaiyukan. Upon stepping inside, you will see the dolphins and orcas almost immediately. I have some reservations about animals kept in captivity...More

There is so much to see, so make sure to come early! The penguin area was my favorite. Unfortunately I missed most of the shows for the animals, so make sure to keep track of time and locations for shows if they are a priority.
