    Suma aqualife Park in Kobe City (this should rate until Tel suizoku Park), is a Aquarium located in Suma-Ku, Kobe Suma Seaside Park. Also referred to as nicknamed "sumasui]. The opening is 5/10/1957. Originally established as a Kobe Municipal Suma aquarium in Kobe Municipal Transportation Bureau of the Ministry, instead of old facilities in 1987, and current building facility was opened at the same time was known by this name. Current facility was first born after a much larger Aquarium. Seems there are Japan records at the time of annual visitors in 1987, recorded number of 2400000 people.

    Called in the morning, I went with my family. Suma aqualife Park in Kobe is at this year's 60th anniversary. A simple amusement, Mont Blanc. The popular Dolphin sit on the blue seat becoming soaked is inevitable. Vinyl Poncho is ¥ 200, ¥ 800 original towels and sold the city facilities while quite business well. Will get wet in the dolphin show (?) Of the people ago the towel and waterproof clothing might provide. Counter does not cause extra dolphin show, entrance right there will be charged fees, you can touch the pectoral fin of a dolphin or seal touch. You look time beforehand on the homepage have a limit either, so would be better. Suma Beach preserve is now (?) In the can is just around the corner and raised two-headed dolphins, feeding. In the ticket shop in the city discount tickets to have annual passes, but we recommend to make sure in advance because tickets are sold.
