Categories: Zoos & Aquariums, Nature & Parks
Inspirock Rating:
4.4/5 based on 200+ reviews on the web
At Kaikyokan you can observe and inspect a wealth of marine life, including displays of puffer fish from all over the world. The aquarium also houses a collection of Humboldt penguins whose clumsy, sometimes comical demeanor transforms to grace and agility when viewed from below the surface. You'll also have the chance to watch dolphin and sea lion shows, as they re-enact a famous offshore samurai battle with their trainers, along with displays dedicated to colorful coral habitats, and those of the tidal flats. Owing to the region's obsession with the culinary delicacy of puffer fish, otherwise known as fugu, the puffer fish exhibit attracts lrge crowds, featuring around 100 different species. Bear in mind that during the winter months, the outdoor dolphin show can get cold, so dress accordingly.

  • Aquarium Penguin pavilion stand out. For the Humboldt Penguin band important breeding habitat as designated for the Penguin breeding, will put power to the Penguin breeding, look and enjoy. It is what can be seen in the Aquarium were then made of the dolphin and seal show. But the seals you will delight in the show here. It was roamed the sea Symphony Hall is surprisingly not so much wide Aquarium. Will be finished around the net about two hours or less. I think we enter with combination tickets and other facilities are set higher.
