This aquarium is really organized and has some great things to see. If you have kids they will love it. They even have a tank where you can feel of the sting rays and small tame sharks. They have sharks, dolphins, seals, otters, tons of fish, jellyfish, and a variety of other sea life. My husband and I really enjoyed... More

It's an aquarium, there are fish and lots of other marine life to view with your eyes. It was good. I liked it. When they fed the fish, it was really good. I was very lonely and there were many Japanese couples dating which made me feel even lonelier.

Not a bad place. Worth to go in and walk around seeing the nice and cute sea creature. The place not really big, it won't make you tired. There are few attraction around this area, worth to hand around and check it out.

I felt like a kid again just walking around the Aquarium--- simply amazing and worth the long line to buy entrance tickets.... and its a good thing they have bathrooms at practically every floor, since there are lots of people enjoying the place.

I have visited marine aquariums all over, and this is one of the best. The focus here is on the ocean, so there are a lot of large, charismatic marine animals on display, including seals, dolphins, and giant japanese spider crabs. It's also one of the few in the world where you can see the whale sharks on display, the... More

I loved this aquarium. They have quite a few animals I've never seen in real life before. E.g. a capybara, large Japanese crabs, sloths and a whale shark. The animals are organised by region. E.g. the largest tank contains creatures from the Pacific Ocean, another from the Aleutian Islands. Towards the end there's an area with shallow tanks containing sting... More

Dolphins, sea lions, fishes, penguins, sharks, sting rays and a lot more are in there! What made me really excited here is the various breed of jellyfish! This is the first time... More

It's not a big aquarium. Big attraction was Dolphins show with the backdrop of sea. They are special for megamouth shark.

My kids were very excited once they got inside. After we walk through some dioramiic aquarium we saw the giant aquarium with a shark whale and others sea creatures such manta, hammer head shark and others. They also have collection of various jelly fish. And at the end of the tour you will see the touch pool pond where you... More
