10 of the dolphins at this 'entertainment' park were chased into a cove in Taiji, Japan.

The aquarium is massive and very well done. All animals seemed to be well looked after and we saw things we have never seen before. Whilst signs have some English they tend to be very inaccurate. Reflecting that Penglai is aimed at domestic tourism, we felt like part of the attraction ourselves as quite rare western visitors and were stopped... More
