Centered around a floating facility harboring a 600-ton tank, Shimoda Aquarium boasts energetic dolphin and sea lion shows. The dome makes up the central point of a barricade in the bay, creating a performance arena and living space for the resident dolphins of the aquarium. Standing on the floating causeway, you'll witness these creatures and their trainers pulling off tricks and stunts. Other activities include dolphin petting, feeding, dolphin trainer workshops for kids, and opportunities for boating around their paddock. Back inside the main building, see over 200 species collected from the Izu as they swim inside the enormous water tank. Our Shimoda trip maker tool makes visiting Shimoda Aquarium and other Shimoda attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

Shimoda Aquarium Reviews
伊豆半島を観光している時に訪れました。 小さな湾の中にある水族館で、規模はそこまで大きくないものの、ショーが凝っており、長く楽しむ事ができました。 伊豆急下田駅からは、多くのバスが運行されているため、アクセスは良好です。 more »I visited here while I was sightseeing on the Izu Peninsula. The aquarium is located in a small bay, and although it is not that big, the show is elaborate and I was able to enjoy it for a long time. There are many buses from Izukyu Shimoda Station, so access is good.
入口に入る前に水槽のような池のような場所ががあり大きな亀がいます。しゃがむと中が見える所もあり亀と写真が撮れます。建物から海を渡って行きます。海にも小魚やイルカも見えたりします。海中の水族館は大きな水槽が真ん中にドーンとあります。外ではイルカショーやペンギンにエサをあげられる時間もあります。 ゴマフアザラシの水中で立っているのが笑えます。 イルカショーで予約して置くとカップルや家族にサプライズでイ... more »Before entering the entrance, there is a place like a pond like a water tank, and there is a big turtle. There is a place where you can see the inside when you crouch down, and you can take a picture with a turtle. I cross the sea from the building. You can also see small fish and dolphins in the sea. The aquarium in the sea has a big aquarium in the middle. Outside, there are dolphin shows and penguins. It's funny to be standing in the water of a seal. If you book and put it at a dolphin show, you can also surprise couples and families with instructors. There are also voices from the staff, such as congratulations on your marriage and happy birthday, and applause will occur. There is also a restaurant and souvenir corner. There are not only the Aquarium's Gutz, but also the souvenirs of Shimoda's seafood.
If you want to go, it is recommended to watch the show from 9:30. There is a show at each place until about 12:00 to get up for 30 minutes, so you can enjoy it. If you miss the 9:30 show, it will be free for about an hour and a half from 12:00.
You can watch the dolphin show in a kayak. It was great.
