Kinosaki Marine World, Toyooka

4.1
#1 of 13 in Parks in Toyooka
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.

    It was a big complex, next to the sea. I personally do not enjoy zoos or aquariums but my husband does. It was very clean and the animals were in really good condition. They have a lot of attractions ...  more »

    This is the title. USJ show more powerful saddened a dolphin show. Admission is a little high but the model element is less so in total is reasonable. It is kinda inconvenient transportation. You don't repent and go elsewhere.
