A giant octopus with 96 tentacles and a large ocean sunfish are the highlight, along with traditional native female divers offering feeding demonstrations.

  • It is a cute little Aquarium located in Kashikojima. ISE also have a variety of institutions, but also is recommended. So cute the other penguins, including the sunfish. -A compact facility, and you can watch characteristics. I rejoice even small children.

  • Small and not so famous in time went with a feeling of loss. But was fun to exceed expectations! Because it can be seen as small compact and the overall open think tank that has. (Performed may be it's time was more than 15) first, and now penguins are cute. Penguin swim much because nobody was chasing the race exhibit (lol) of ancient sea can slowly see them clearly. (Toba Aquarium also exhibits a similar plan, but people are a lot more up and I was flying. ) And Sunfish is seen from the front and thin art that looked dazed. Contains articles on building, timeless feel to panels. I was liking it too, I'm sure there are encounters with creatures of your favorite! Is suitable for people who want to see slowly, over time and with small children! Less than 5 minutes walk from Kashikojima Station, very friendly! For dating a shining new city and recommend doing is photogenic Aquarium and the atmosphere is different from when I went to near!

  • Kashikojima with ticket purchase. If the original 3000 while able to enjoy rates 2400 yen. Marineland is a small Aquarium, but was jerked and the place seems packed, doing good and fun. We recommend walking from the cruise terminal, parking which is free, so the move. Sneek peek at newly formed take a look at the Kashikojima Station in when you move the Summit Memorial.

  • It is not glamorous Toba and Nagoya and the old facility is compact and easy to grasp the whole, reassuring Aquarium. Back yard to join the tour, staff Ms could feel closer to the fish.

  • A small Aquarium is nice just don't swim in the good doctor fish rain. In addition, guests can make little time rides ever to check out so close to the train station.

Where to stay in Shima

Only recently merged into one city, Shima has many different centers, each with its set of accommodations. The main ones of interest for tourists lie close to the train stations, with conveniently placed hotels and guesthouses, and also along the coast. Accommodations dot the rugged coastlines of Ago and Matoya bays, where some particularly exclusive options enjoy extensive coastal views, onsite spas, and restaurants. Standing next to them, in only slightly less privileged positions, you'll find a number of guesthouses and simple hotels.
