Kagoshima City Aquarium, Kagoshima

3.8
#3 of 18 in Parks in Kagoshima
Spread over seven floors, Kagoshima City Aquarium displays a wide array of marine life forms, from the small and ethereal, to the whale shark, the world's biggest fish. The waters surrounding this aquarium harbor an unusually diverse range of life due to the bay's subterranean volcanism and the Kuroshio current that courses by. You'll see exhibits on these habitats specifically, with the aquarium's largest tank demonstrating the populace found in the current. Witness shoals of fish moving in unison as giant rays gracefully glide around them, and marvel at the enormous whale shark. Watch the dolphins execute incredible tricks alongside their trainers at one of the performances, and check feeding times on the website to catch this popular event. Kagoshima City Aquarium is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our international travel planner, Kagoshima Edition.

    If children come to the ER Jiuzhou Deer Island City trip in Japan, one individual going to view point, is this look no further. This here although the airport is not large, but there are also many views of marine life, many children can be full foot.

    Aquaria is located near Sakurajima ferry, foot, 8 minutes or so. Sun is about relationships, and qian萬 not when over head line to the scorching sun. Sell without Dining Hall Hotel, only a lot of Yin 販 Mai airport, located on the top coating resting place, but looked far Sakurajima volcano!

    You can just sit and watch as dolphins having fun outside of actual "showtime". Loved the show too.

    Terrible! Nobody should go there... is so cruel for the poor animals. All the places where the animals are in captivity must be closed! Seriously, do you want to teach your children this things? Is not fair for the animals, is not fair for the kids
