  • Last summer I went once. It is not very interesting. Six months later, I went to this year's new year's day. In addition were disappointing. Even though not well kept private garden, unlimited grass. Under construction everywhere. Remains almost silent but motivated woman at the ticket counter, how attitudes, for the end ticket pass to the customer on the counter. In this sense there is? Contents of the Aquarium's bottom line.... cut corners at content found in the Aquarium, so no special feeling. It is 1800 Yen too high. I'm not going anymore.

However, rises on the 3rd floor to see the exhibition on the ground floor, has introduced from upstream rivers in Japan. Towards the end represented a group of tank top of the sardine. From there, the seals, sea lions marine mammal zones. Iwaki, presentation of Hama-Dori, seas, rivers and so on. Many exhibited: the tropical zone, tropical fish, full of tropical plants, tropical birds also can be seen. The tropical saltwater fish zone. Following the exhibition of North Sea fish, deep sea fish, can be seen only here is there are no creatures. And considering the sea fronts, large water tank, triangular-shaped tunnel. ISO pool representing the seas of Maldives followed by watching the undersea creatures from there. Get out there and there is a restaurant, a souvenir shop front moves to right back. Tropical fish and tropical birds, otters fun display. There is a BBQ, fishing zones and to go outside. So go eat everything that caught attention! Thanks for working so what! And the aforementioned Janome beaches and exciting nightlife. Summer children play in a swimsuit. From exit with return to restaurants, souvenir, souvenirs to buy, if you shop for food.

  • 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.
  • Thumbs up
  • Surprised that began as a process of evolution from the fossil as well as exhibits of fish. Interesting is the nutrition Panel. Eaten sushi while skipjack, etc., or comment that "If you eat delicious' description of the shrimp and crab is also so funny. Exhibits of the last coelacanths had bad heart though (lol)
