  • I like dolphin shows and have been going there regularly for a long time. Compared to zoos, i wonder if the entrance fee is a little high, but i am satisfied with the maintenance cost of the huge facility, cleaning clean, and the high quality of the building.

  • As you write, dolphin shows are worth watching. It seems to be unpopular depending on the person, but you should judge it for yourself.

  • One of the best aquarium I have ever seen. We went in Tuesday so it wasn’t crowded. Well designed. Stroller friendly. Adult fee 2000¥ and 500¥ for a child ticket. It has dolphins performance show and Orca training which are not usual in aquarium. You easily spend 2-3 hrs may be more if you can read and speak Japanese. My 4 years old daughter had fun. You can spend more time on the port but we couldn’t because it was rainy day.
  • Amazing place if you happen to love and enjoy sea life. This aquarium showcases many varieties of sea creatures. It's a really good place for you to bring your family, especially with children. There is a fantastic dolphin show which happens twice a day.
