    This is a very scholarly and educational facilities. I think building, as you can see, a fairly large property in a required admission fee is reasonable. However, I wish that more clarity and make the interesting content is. Or foreign cultures are unnecessary.

    Aquarium so crowded because GW was avoided here. While the adults ran toddler cum out of waves reflected in the video on the big screen and the floor, barefoot gladly played. Was surprised by the size, adorned many real ship of rowing in other countries also saw for the first time since. Planetarium and comfort after a long time. Also from GW, hand-crafted "maze of the starry sky" dark maze, Wuss than enjoyed. After watching dolphins and sea turtles (the Aquarium and other facilities as seen in free) returned. If you have never seen Aquarium is recommended here.

    Is good, but admission requires additional ¥ 170. When you enter but in most people, gave exclusive with the hotel's description would recommend. Hotel is beautifully displayed and those interested in the sea is a must. So there is also a planetarium, where you can enjoy for admission is what.

    This is an interesting place to learn about ancient, seafaring cultures, the clothes, equipment and clothing used by those who traveled by sea, years ago. There are some excellent models of the types of boats used around Asia and, multi-lingual signs help explain everything on display.

Where to stay in Motobu-cho

Most visitors to Motobu-cho opt to spend their time by the sea, so accommodations have positioned themselves accordingly. Choose from a number of beachfront hotels, resorts, and guesthouses located close to the aquarium and botanical garden, and on Sesoko Island. By the harbor in the main urban area, a few homestays and guesthouses dot the largely residential part of town. As a general rule, urban areas farther inland offer more budget-friendly rooms, whereas lodgings in non-urban areas farther inland tend to be pricier retreats making the most of the scenery and seclusion.
