  • The Museum is only a part of a wonderful park with excellent views over the city, beach and the rocks of the hole. Excellent. You can visit the Museum for 500 yen incl. rooftop also great prospects. The park itself is free, it goes directly behind the aquarium right, then left a trail in the well landscaped park. You can perfectly have a picnic with a view. CA 1 km circuit, about 20 minutes at least 3 points. From the beach, walking about 20 minutes, you can take (hourly) bus (E.g. line 102).
