Kagoshima City Aquarium, Kagoshima
(3.7/5 based on 200+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Kuroshio tank has whale sharks and rays are powerful. There is also Wi-Fi, so was convenient.

  • A visit is certainly worthwhile. You just not should be scared, how full it is in the Aquarium and you have to wait quite a bit for a good seat at the demonstrations/feedings. But overall a nice attraction.

  • Pretty much standing room only during the week despite popular and well trained dolphins. In the third column would likely hang around water and the front was okay.
