The aquarium is small but very fun for small children. Older kids may get bored because after the dolphin show, everything else is just "ok".... On a side note, the dolphins look abused and their tanks are too small. Tortoises are cool.

If you don't know by now, Aomori is famous for scallops. They are harvested in Mutsu Bay. The scallops there have an intense, sweetish scallop flavor. What makes Hakodate the dried scallop capital of Japan is because the scallops probably derive from nearby Aomori. Whenever I'm in the Aomori area, I eat scallops every day. You don't have to eat...

I am not sure I am a fan of caged (or "tanked" in this case) animals, but I didn't hate this aquarium. Some of the displays are well put together. But others disturbed me. Last time I visited (for the sake of the kids) there was a huge king crab in a tank that just barely fit. Yikes. And there... More

I went here on the train. It was very easy to get too. It is kind of small. I walked the entire place in about 90 min. But I would recommend seeing it. There is a great view of the water also. Stop there on your way to Aomori.

It's not Sea World, but it's still a good day trip for families with young children. Located outside Aomori, the aquarium is about an hour's driving time to get there from Misawa. It is the largest aquarium of the Tohoku region, and has over 500 species of aquatic animals from around the world. Admission is 1000 yen ($10.00) for adults... More

The aquarium did not seem to respect much its animals. The sea lions are clearly lacking of space. They allow kids to play with the crabs. Of course the kids prefer to traumatise them instead of cuddling them.
