  • See the dolphin show in nearby nice. The Penguin walks there seals touch the animals out in the near. I thought it's hard to move because the facilities are primarily located outside it rains.

  • Old-fashioned in appearance, small size. Of course, beautiful sea and Sea Aquarium, with naught but a small Aquarium. However, Aquarium exhibit and events and twist very, even adults can enjoy fully turned. First of all, has numerous opportunities for contact with creatures and fantastic. Feeding seals, penguins walk do, feeding the turtles can even do creatures touch experiences of doctor fish, sharks and rays, just around the corner look, sometimes touching, very high level of satisfaction. Has been a twist exhibition method also, very entertaining. Enjoy two hours visiting adults, does not. Difficult to say, restaurant on the campus of somewhat Shobo because, with a narrow parking lot, at a retro 3D Theater and absurdly long.
