Kinosaki Marine World, Toyooka
(4.1/5 based on 200+ reviews on the web)
Watch walruses, sea lions, and dolphins perform gravity-defying tricks at Kinosaki Marine World. When you first enter the complex, you'll encounter a fairly modest aquarium, comparative to others in the country--though at three stories tall it still boasts a variety of marine life. The facility's real specialization is the larger mammals, showcased in a 30-minute show. You'll also have an opportunity to learn about the biology of Pacific white-sided dolphins in a dedicated live show. Extra experiences include submersion into the water as dolphins frolic and swim around you (without your getting wet), and swimming with the friendly creatures. Both come at extra cost, and the swimming option requires you to pre-book around a month in advance.

  • We did not have high expectation of this facility as it is located in the countryside, on the coast of the Sea of Japan. We had not been to Osaka Kaiyukan yet but the onsen staff had told us that the ...  more »
  • In the Inns stayed near kinosaki Onsen's leading tourist attractions. Dolphin and sea lion show is close to the distance to the stage there was powerful. Penguin family (? ) 嵌rimashita showed the harmonious gesture to a jar. That seems like too much Penguin kids first time to was him stuffed way back when, was unexpected. Aquarium representing the Japan Sea side and I'd a had been rich in content.
