Kamo Aquarium, Tsuruoka

4.2
#1 of 17 in Zoos & Aquariums in Tohoku
Stocked by the daily catches made by intrepid staff, Kamo Aquarium boasts an enormously comprehensive collection of jellyfish. The aquarium's choice to diversify into displaying these otherworldly creatures saved it from hard times and has more than doubled its annual footfall--making it one of the most popular aquariums in the country. On the underground levels, observe over 35 species of the spectral jellyfish as they float illuminated in dark tanks. It's not all about the jellyfish though: you'll also see sharks, octopuses, and other marine creatures, as well as entertaining sea lions in their live show. Don't forget to pick up a jellyfish-related souvenir in the gift shop. See Kamo Aquarium and all Tsuruoka has to offer by arranging your trip with our Tsuruoka driving holiday planning app .

    Is a small aquarium in the country once crushed, but specialized in jellyfish research fine Aquarium was revived and, in breeding jellyfish appear in Guinness. Country can enjoy various jellyfish, but in a small Aquarium. CAPA is not enough time to become famous throughout Japan, tourists take more than an hour to as soon as you enter big long lines... admiring the jellyfish, jellyfish exhibition to arrive. Well now be talking about have nothing to do. Except for jellyfish feed on sea lion show and black-tailed gull has attractions such as watering.

    It was a wonderful aquarium. Also it had a fun seal and sea lion show. The exhibits of jellyfish we're amazing! I never knew there were so many species of jellyfish. The shows and most information are in Japanese but it was still incredible. FYI my friend and I were coming from the airport nearby and the taxi ride to and from cost ¥4000 each time. There is a bus if you have more time but we needed to catch a flight.

    The best jelly fish aquarium ever. You can even order ice cream with jelly fish flavor :) The shows are interesting and my kids liked it.

    I highly recommend that you go first thing in the morning. It's also better to bring lunch with you. There aren't many places to eat nearby.
