  • upon entering the aquarium, you are greeted with the orca and dolphins! They are in a huge tank that filled up the place and the size is impressive for Japan. The show was very good and the range of f...  more »
  • Although it is a small one. But also enough to play on the big day. With many experiences, activities, demonstrations, performances, etc. He will take his time table. Plan the route well.

  • Because of the time relationship we only buy tickets for the aquarium, and we can also get a discount on the one-day rolls. Divided into the South Museum and the North Museum, there are different performances, advice can be a look at the performance time to arrange. Although there is no settlements Ding Haiseng hotel in the district, but the decision will not regret!! The bleachers can also be bought with small turtle and whale dumplings, children love ^ ^

  • My opinions are probably colored positively because I took my wife here on a date, but the staff and planners here have done an excellent job of mixing entertainment with genuine education. The facilities are clean and there are plenty of areas to sit and just bask in the dappled light of the recreated underwater bioms. We enjoyed ourselves and want to go back!
  • Very nice aquarium and surrounding port area. They offer tickets for just the aquarium or you can additional places like the Mt. Fuji research ship and port observatory. I went on a weekday so the crowd was not that plenty and had a great time just looking at the animals without feeling being rushed. I liked this better than Kaiyukan Aquarium in Osaka primarily because it's so huge and can spend the whole day in the area.
  • Really nice aquarium, big! Well worth a visit. My toddler loves the animal shows. An annual pass is cheaper if you plan to visit several times.
  • Nice Facilities. Great for family, couples, or a solo trip. If you want to read the info, proficiency in Japanese is a must. Otherwise, have a good time.
  • Fantastic dolphin and orca shows! this aquarium houses dolphins and orcas(Killer whales) only.. no other fishes. but fantastic none the less!

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.
