  • Strolling Penguin and dolphin show, especially pleasing to children. And also exhibits the minamisanriku sea, study content. But I may even see a little bit more.

  • Don't think that not since the summer, very good breakfast, large parking lot. Is made for the elderly and families with small children as early as possible so that there is, however, wide parking, quite a distance from the entrance, the better.

  • Alongside the 1-hour, 10-12 pm dolphin show! Almost no attractions, was disappointing. Okinawa Churaumi Aquarium Dolphin is a world of difference.

  • This is a good aquarium with good exhibits and interactive activities and enviroments for kids. While the building is new and clean on the inside the outside needs a lot of work. Many of the pump systems are exposed as well as air pumps and staff changing areas. These blemishes take away from the overall experience and image. Another thing that could be changed is the extended parking lot. The surrounding parking lots are dirt, very bumpy and very muddy during rains. The plans are to make camp sites, tennis, soccer and baseball fields later. When they can finish the parking lot it will be a welcome change to the dirt roads now. All in all, this is a great place. There are many problems that need to be taken care of but once they are this will be a great location. (2017)
  • they have great collection and exhibition. just too expensive I thought
  • It's a great place for kids. Kindly service!
  • New aquarium in Sendai built after the tohoku earthquake relocated from Matsushima. A bit pricey but the exhibits are new and the shows are quite good.
  • Dullest aquarium I've ever been to. Even the exterior looked boring. I thought I was walking up to a factory plant. The tanks were really empty and animals didn't look happy or stimulated. Inconveniently located. About a 25 minute walk from the station if shuttles aren't running or available. Good points were it was clean and nice staff.

Where to stay in Sendai

In the city center of Sendai, you'll find a good range of budget and luxury accommodations to suit a range of tastes. From standard high-rise hotels to traditional "ryokan" (guesthouses), they sit pretty close to the main train station, forming clusters around the main public parks, commercial developments, and temples. The surrounding landscape features a number of "onsen" (traditional Japanese spas) located in clusters around hot springs. Take a look close at Mount Okura and Kamakurayama for some of the most concentrated patches of spa retreats.
