Zoo / Aquarium
Set in a striking, greenhouse-style structure, Aquamarine Fukushima gives visitors a comprehensive overview of life in the ocean through a variety of living and preserved displays. The complex features aesthetically pleasing aquariums filled with abundant and colorful fish, as well as larger mammalian sea-dwellers. One enclosure even features a glass walkway going into the tank, allowing for an underwater aspect on the animals. Along with the aquariums, the complex offers exhibits on extinct and prehistoric species, including a preserved example of one of the first known fish, the coelacanth. Those looking for a little more than just ocean life are in luck, as the facility also boasts an in-depth botanical garden on the third floor. You can finish your experience by relaxing in the cafe, with tables looking through the glass and out over the harbor.

  • This place is great, especially for kids. We can enjoy watching many kind of fishes, playing sallow beach, eating fresh fish. In summer season, the place has many sun shades and air conditioner inside buildings.

  • Good!
  • Because of large-sized Aquarium dolphin and sea lion show and is a sober impression, very impressive new tide ice box deep corner? Only "aquamarine", "the world's only" and has "encyclopedia is not only" seems to be fish and shrimp. Encoding: see freshwater fish and birds with personally was the climax here is the greenhouse plants, and was impressed by, and designed to display help. I had a hard time to rebuild from the disaster. I sincerely hope we visit many of you alone, this Aquarium is coming more and more prosperity to.
