Okichan Theater, Motobu-cho

Enjoy remarkable dolphin acrobatics set against the picturesque backdrop of the East China Sea at Okichan Theater. The pride of the park, the dolphins jump, play and even dance along with the local music. Best of all, the dolphins display a fun-loving attitude, and you might find yourself laughing hysterically at their antics. The relatively short, wheelchair-friendly, child-appropriate show offers a fully covered seating area to protect you from rain.

  • The dolphin show here is great! The festival is very diverse! There are two performances, one is distance, one is close, you can see the interaction between working people and dolphins. Taiwan also has such a performance, but the performance of the Okinawa, let me feel the dolphins really love nature.

  • Saw a false killer whale that was actually a dolphin, and I didn't know if that was even in existence until I saw it at this place.  more »
  • Dolphin show that both adults and children. Talented dolphins. Very bright and the Sun was just coming off at the time of last visit without sunglasses, was able to shoot very nice photos to collaboration but I didn't stay long, sunsets with dolphins jumping.

  • Can't believe it was free of charge. It was a short show then staffs is explaining the dolphin life. All the speeches are only in japanese. But it is worth to walk around to discover other activities for free as well.
  • Free zone, cute dolphin show. If you want a seat, come early 20min at least. The show is only 15 min.
  • Very good dolphin show! Also was free.
  • A really great dolphin show. Must see when visiting Churaumi Aquarium.
  • Love the dolphin show. Very nice with the dolphins jumping out of the water. You can get close to the tank to see the dolphins after the show.

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.
