Kobe City Suma Marine Aquarium, Kobe

4.0
#2 of 8 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.

  • As the last spots of Hyogo Prefecture tourism, visited sea life Park. From the station can get on foot in about 7 minutes. Admission is 1300 yen, Nagoya citizen of my 65-year-old, so 2% 1,040 yen. Once inside the building, and over 20 m front to rear of Grand Aquarium de force was stunned! Macrocheira kaempferi de Haan, cinanago, jellyfish looks in the water tank. It seemed pretty's Sea Otter swim, tank pool located in the annex, turned his back. Small eyes, short Forelegs on the belly up moving very stuffed. A masterpiece is the dolphin show in the main hall. Hats off to the performance of music and announcements received better training staff of gestures and gesture to Porth and moving around the dolphins! Breath-taking and discipline staff! From the audience but the storm of applause. Amazing dolphin show was like most popular sea life Park.

  • I went to about 25 years Buri. As well as the Aquarium and attractions for children. Clean and quite impressive. Is that like to please especially take a look at Dolphin Show. In front of the long water, Dolphin high jump is quite a sight. The Show Debuts ROK male-Kun was born in 0/2016, so is expected to. Adult admission is 1300 yen, which is impressive because it wasn't. You want to go again.
