Kobe City Suma Marine Aquarium, Kobe

4.0
#2 of 7 in Zoos & Aquariums in Hyogo Prefecture
Discover what lies beneath during a trip to Kobe City Suma Marine Aquarium, an education and observation facility. Opened in 1957, the striking pyramid-shaped building houses a number of separate aquatic environments, allowing you to get up close and personal to different ecosystems. Head to the Amazon-themed area to examine the plant life and creatures you'd find on a trip there, and check out the main water tank to view a range of sharks and rays swimming about. Catch the dolphin performance and the live piranha feeding sessions for two contrasting images of the natural world.

  • It is a place of recreation and relaxation for citizens "Aquarium is deserted facility" that image is beautiful asserted "never came here and raised in Kobe by people who do not" think far ahead, such as sea and eight Islands was also is as good as. It is personally paired with bathing facilities in the summer it is very. It is not suitable for tourists.

  • Is the Aquarium is easy to put on the Suma coast. Not big nor a smaller foot, just look carefully at the right size the whole Aquarium. A large water tank is large and powerful.

  • Is not very large so too had planned it and that rush and looking around (laughs) or the popular fish, fish feed children were happy, see moments of compassion. However, at the back? The amusement park is small, 1 300 yen, small children are willing take a pretty consuming money better Hooray-(&gt; <) Aquarium, though, are? Thinking and let the lighter wallet. Take reasonable entrance fee, so be careful.
