    Is a famous shark breeding Aquarium, but I think is the best place to see a large water tank. Sardines in droves glitter shine while swimming, sea turtles, sharks and rays, such as people, fish like to swim together, is ❗ in addition to ️ yurayura and slowly float when you forget the jellyfish exhibition also boasts. It is very fun exhibits characteristics of organisms in each Aquarium.

    Is recommended but dolphin is a beautiful building that both adults and children can enjoy. Summer is known as Dolphin surfing (and out the call), staff was in the water, aboard the dolphin swim, can't wait to see. First is recommended, because it gets crowded during golden week and summer vacation. And priority admission you buy tickets in advance and can be. The show is bathed in the water column is fun. Order ahead of time, so more or less open, is just 並nnja. They crowded the parking lot itself during the day, still morning?!

    Nice aquarium with a lot of different exhibits. There is a lot of interesting things for smaller kids as well. It does get a little busy during the holidays, but that is to be expected.

    The aquarium was interesting only because it offers a behind the scenes tour of the facility which offered good insight into how much care these animals need. It's sad because it's obvious that aquariums, zoos, and other places that place animals in captivity is sad and dangerous. I won't be going again to this or any other aquariums.

    Excellent place for children. They will definitely love it. Grown ups will enjoy too. People enjoy dolphin show here. Only negative point is that it is against animal rights.
