  • Speaking of Kyoto Aquarium Penguin, giant salamander and tell me. And penguins are cute but not giant salamander is just a great number of other Aquarium, in the very near and have been looking pretty. Even thin Anago in popularity with the children while I was excited.

  • Dolphin Show, including all around, was two and a half hours. New, nowhere in a great twist to, I guess.

  • Events such as the dolphin show was devised with the customer. There is interest in takes no time in the Aquarium itself is not so big, look around you, but also of the tank about the Aquarium.

  • This is a small aquarium with a limited selection of aquatic animals, but stands out because it presents the local fauna of Kyoto. You probably won't find so many salamanders and tiny eels anywhere else around the world. Definitely worth a visit on your second or third visit to the city, or with your family if you are a resident of Kyoto.
  • I've seen many aquariums around the world. This one is average at best. There are so many nice things to see in Kyoto that I don't recommend you go here unless you're sick of temples and it's raining. Even then consider the train museum next door which is actually worth a visit.
  • 20 $ for adult. It's not a big place but at least I can enjoy something new rather than Temple and Shrine everyday.
  • It's worth spending a afternoon for family. It's not a huge place but has lots of wonderful mix of animals. Some parts of it, such as Jelly fish room and 2-3 floor high tank will definitely give you a wow!
  • Kyoto Aquarium and Kyoto Railway Museum are both in Umenokoji area near Kyoto station. You might want to visit this place at the same time. ( Trans-word+ : TGM Kyoto Guide )
