Where to stay in Noboribetsu

The majority of places to stay in Noboribetsu lie inland, to the north of the main train station. Close to the hot springs and the volcanic valley, accommodations lie on all the streets across the modest urban area of the resort town. Many people see staying in traditional "ryokan" (guesthouses) as part of the experience, but some more modern hotels can be found across town, too. Visitors primarily look to find an option with onsite "onsen" (traditional Japanese hot spring spas), although you can always arrange a visit to one if not.

  • Marine Park Nixe is a 5 to 10 minutes walk away from Noboribetsu JR Station. The admission fee, 2450 yen per adult, is expensive considering the small size and somewhat run-down look of Marine Park Ni...  more »

  • The animals are all in very small enclosures, especially this one poor shark. Also the descriptions of the majority of the animals are all in Japanese which made my viewing experience difficult. The housing of most the animals were very poor and I will not visit this park ever again.
  • It's not big as many people said. I would recommend it if you're traveling with young kids. It's effortless spending 3-4 hours here with children. You should track down all the shows--the time table should allow you to almost watch them one after the other. The aquarium is in the castle building, do not miss of course. There are some paid kids rides right next to he park, not that attractive honestly.
  • I love this aquarium and theme park. There are outdoor rides for kids. Penguin parade is center of the park. Dolphin show and Seal performance is great. The central building looks like a castle and display of different marine life inside. There is a section with marine life that can be touched. Salamander is also display inside. Penguin parade is a must watch. Tuna musical show is also amazing there. go early to get a good sit before the show starts.
  • Small size aquarium with a good collection of unique aquatic animals. Penguin parade, Dolphin show, sealion show, and other shows can be seen here.
  • Peguwing walking and the fish show, you cannot miss them here.
