  • Go by car and from the Canal is surprisingly close. We recommend that please go to the time in the dolphin show. Cute and fun. Large aquarium, guests can enjoy a leisurely.

  • My 1st Self-drive (F&E) tour. My 1st visit to Japan. It is a small aquarium with some outdoor sea performance. See a lot of different kind of interesting fishes. Good to go with the kids.
  • Quaint and rustic feel. Good for 3 hour visit with plenty of parking
  • Very good aquarium. Dolphins show is amazing.
  • The sea view here is beautiful. The animals here are cute. I like the Penguin Walk very much!
  • Old place and you need to take bus to get there
