  • You can see near the Manatee. Seen from above, such as large mushroom. Time to breath is coming up on the nose only to Po this! and it's very cute. Go down and Manatee close looks.

  • This is another free attraction within the Ocean Expo Park. There's a male and a female manatee but the enclosure seemed a tad too small for these creatures.... 
  • Is a place where feeling a little lonely in the Okinawa Churaumi Aquarium, is the favorite. Only the are four real Manatee was not crowded, so slowly was observed. Great body to rotate slowly, toward us through the glass of the Aquarium was very cute. Feel relaxed and healed. If the Interior of the hotel a little ingenuity, facilities more attractive.
