    It is currently building renewal construction, so go in April next year is better. Foremost, appealing the whale shark Aquarium here! It is found only in three locations in Japan. As big as whales feed watering time should see absolutely! Very impressive though! A shark! Healing is so cute!

    Very beautiful place! Aquarius is quite large, many species of fish and great presentations that lead the audience to frenzy. Amazing new ride is worth it.

Where to stay in Nanao

Accommodation in Nanao is scarce, mostly consisting of a couple of inns and hotels catering to business travelers, scattered around the city. The Wakura Onsen, on the other hand, boasts a large variety of traditional Japanese "ryokan" guesthouses, as well as mid-range and high-end Western-style hotels. Situated on the coast just outside of town, the "onsen" resort village features lodings with scenic sea views.
