Nagasaki Penguin Aquarium, Nagasaki

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.

  • A little away from the Nagasaki City was small, a little lost on the way. Entrance fee is cheap and pen there are many kinds of penguins. To go with small children you can see closely, but there are fears one day play, and just feel good. I think it's best during the event has been going.
