  • Quite far away from Noboribetsu JR station! Most people are attracted to the penguin walk. If your itinerary includes Asahikawa Asahiyama Zoo, you can omit this marine park!
  • lot of fun here, you can enjoy penguins show and also sea lions show, I like it. :D
  • Animals in small enclosures. Poor sawtooth shark in tank that it can't even swim. Dying eels in small tanks. No supervision in touch pool. Chinese tourist lifting starfish out of the pool. Tourist trap....:(
  • Small scale but good for family with small children.
  • 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.
