  • Many different species of Penguin that is here. Touch. Take a photo together. Especially seeing the Rockhopper penguin would never get bored. However, boleophthalmus is watched the longest. Watching their jumping ability and subashiko would never get bored. Food is good timing. There is approaching towards the bait here fun.

  • Entry was open during the week and at the same time. 500 yen and you can see many kinds of penguins at a very reasonable price. Pretty close look at even the penguins only penguins is the main display, satisfaction is high like a bird. The Penguin walk and feed is able to do. You could see this time has given the food keeper. Like the Penguin-like bird is the Aquarium should go once.

Release the Penguin on the sands of food do or divers in the water feeding or watering, specializing in the Penguin approach differs from other aquariums and zoos, and designed.

  • There was plenty of English script, a gorgeous display of Japanese and open water fish, plus friendly+helpful staff. For a small fee (¥100, I think) you can help the staff to feed the Humboldt penguins! The enterance fee is very reasonable (¥510 for an adult) and the animals are very well cared for. There's lots for kids of all ages to enjoy, including those young at heart!
  • Fun time. There are two parking lots. P2 is closest to the entrance. You get to pet penguins but only during a certain time. You can dress up in a penguin onesie! They have fish here too and an outdoor area. Their cafe has udon noodles, icecream and coffee.
  • Large number of penguins of all varieties. Lots of written information, if one is interested. You can also see the penguins being fed and walked to the sea, where they get some "free time" to play. Other Marine life, as well. Good for all ages (our kids are 15 and 18 and enjoyed).
  • Kid friendliest place in Nagasaki city. Good place to while an hour or so away while the kids enjoy the different species of penguins in this aquarium. There are in house penguiuns, and another outdoor meet and greet style where you can see them up close at the beach. As usual, there is a cutey gift shop and cafe where they serve penguin shaped doriyaki. 2 large carparks for your parking needs.
  • It was an interesting experience! Well worth the price of 500 yen. We went on a typhoon day so the feeding experience was not avaliable that day. It was cool to be able to see the penguins withing touching distances which is a first for me! Would highly recommend going at feeding times as you will be able to get to view the cute birds up close and personal!
