“Excellent!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2014

Spent half a day at the aquarium and very impressed. Plenty to see, and well worth the cover charge of 2300 Yen. The central tank is quite amazing, huge in scale with whale sharks, rays, and also hammerhead sharks cruising by. The seals and dolphins were also plenty of fun to watch. Morley eels, penguins, lobsters, and giant crabs were also amazing, as well as the Great Barrier Reef display.

“Great Place to visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2014

We are a couple in our late 20s/early 30s and I must say we really enjoyed this aquarium. We didn't expect it to be this fun and enjoyable. The best part of the place is at the end when you get to pet the smaller and more docile sharks and sting rays! Highly recommended for people of all ages
