    Travel by car to visit the Mart seating can be purchased in the shop. To let the people down at near the Aquarium and parking is receiving a return card to prepare coins pay guys buy tickets. Only remember about 2,000 yen Auarium but worth the time spent, it does not lower than 2-3 hours are kinda show. Whales, whales, dolphins, big bull, Penguin and scare a lot of fish within a fish, turtles, shellfish, crab, jellyfish, many very beautiful and good guys. If your visit Nagoya-should not be missed, but it lasted 3 hours! kt tattoo.

    I'd say Nagoya Higashiyama Zoo go well, depending on the season and weather vary considerably performance, so this is recommended. Exit the Metro station and walk a little, but this pen is healed to the penguins.

    You can enjoy the underwater viewing of the dolphin's performance (Dolphin). The Orca public training is fun.

    Nice family place with decent bio diversity and shows. Our favorites were the dolphin show, iwashi (sardine) show, and penguins (so many!). There were also baby animals, like baby sea turtles and clown fish, on display. Food options included a sit down restaurant, and fast food cafeteria. Not the largest aquarium by any chance. Can't help but felt sorry for the killer whales, beluga whales, and dolphins.

    Has a wide variety of sea animals, including the skeletons of deep sea creatures. Very informational, and has a great dolphin show. Costs 20$ for adults. I enjoy going there Everytime. I don't know what else to write here.

    Perfect place for relaxing. Amazing viewing and show with dolphins. The pinguins were so funny. Everthing was super

    The dolphin show was much better 2 years ago. Not sure what happened since then. When we went both the dolphin and a killer whale had been born so that might have been the reason.

    Dolphin show was great. Very good introduction to Marine life for kids. Parents also can enjoy.

Where to stay in Nagoya

The central district, just south from the castle and its gardens, houses the bulk of accommodations in Nagoya. You'll find a good range of standard hotels, with onsite restaurants, simple rooms, and perhaps a pool in this area. Look slightly to the west, or closer to the castle,to find more luxurious accommodations. Across the surrounding residential areas, take a look close to the metro stations to find some of the most conveniently located, but budget-friendly hostels and guesthouses.
