Nagasaki Penguin Aquarium, Nagasaki

(4.3/5 based on 150+ reviews on the web)
Nagasaki Penguin Aquarium offers a glimpse at nine different penguin types, including rare species. Meet the large, gentle king penguin, as well as the little penguin--the smallest penguin species in the world. The aquarium lets you get up close to these lovable creatures, and children can delight in feeding and petting them. Row a kayak in the nature zone--an outdoor part of the compound--and then explore the biotope environment. Other than penguins, the aquarium also holds fish.

  • As a whole, for a long time, small but clean, well-maintained, and the penguins throughout the hygiene management staff for the look impressed. Penguin feeding time, and time for a walk event was the Castle events the animals unlike other shows starring the penguins don't get a lot of stress in the line goes, only the penguins seemed the event can play a little beach is also good. The child is a little larger and I would like to visit again.

  • Is early, but there are buses from Nagasaki-Ekimae bus stop is difficult to understand, so ask at the tourist office. Out of the Jr Nagasaki station and explained by the way, in front of the oncoming right diagonal "Japan Sea village headman". Also I think you can see walking and feeding time, you can see penguins of various low-cost, very good location. Other fish also exhibited as well as penguins. I think a surprising spot of Nagasaki tourism. I would recommend!

  • It is as the name suggests Aquarium but have a lot of Penguin Aquarium. From the front entrance so you can't see the building from the parking lot a little anxiety in the biotope pond beside the trail on the way because you can learn. And many more display Penguin information are able to see penguins in the Aquarium next to the sea. People over 60 years old who live in the city seems to be free.
