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.

  • As other people have written for a little feel old. A few places may particularly visited, but it was raining, no roof for the relatively wet. However, felt that the contents of the exhibition very interesting. It was unlike other Aquarium including a description of the body in the flow of the evolution of life and the struggle for survival of the symbiotic relationship, looking at not only enjoy the learning. Personally went to many Aquarium was Suma Aquarium 1-satisfaction.

  • Compared to modern urban Aquarium, Marineland and clean facility shows now. I thought scattered buildings, cold or rainy days it is inconvenient.
