  • So visit again! Equipped exhibition. Whale sharks are not truly equipped Sea Aquarium this Aquarium. Swim gracefully in front of walruses and sea lions have a laid back is tremendous. Sea Lions walking around the hotel, good luck? People caught taking sea lion communication, music or art. And you touching the dolphin, dolphins and sea lions can IL catch various there squinting. Food and drink are hotel outside both buildings continue to go out across the street from takasakiyama (building of pus from the parking lot to the egg. ). There are souvenir shops and restrooms. Parking becomes pretty full on weekends. Hopefully in time for the opening hours is best.

Where to stay in Oita

The accommodations of Oita proper lie between the main train station and the harbor. Congregating around the primary commercial districts, a number of high-rise hotels, some luxury and some standard, cater primarily to visiting businesspeople. Most visitors will instead choose to stay at the nearby resort towns of Beppu (a very touristy option along the coast to the west) and Yufuin (a more stylish and refined version, inland to the west) to enjoy the hot spring spa hotels.
