We heard it was very popular and so very, very crowded (esp. on weekends) ... but, as it was... read more

Enjoyed and learned something. Especially, Coelacanth. If you understand Japanese, look for the timing of 15 minutes lecture. When I visited here, that was at 13:00. Explanation and visuals are excellent and informative. Other displays are also looking good. Highly recommended.

Very different deep sea animals, easy to get to not speaking any Japanese. Naumazu on the ocean has amazing Sushi and fish dishes

Deep Sea Aquarium is next to the fresh market and restaurants, near the coast. The Aquarium is much bigger than I thought. When I reached there I thought it was just a tiny house, indeed they keep some weird sea creatures alive. It's amazing. Also,...More

We were in Numazu in a regular week day afternoon, and there wasn't much to see there, when we found this aquarium. The entrance fee was somehow expensive, don't remember the exact value, but I think it was something between 1200 to 1500 yens. Well,...More

I'm a diver but I"m not really into museum. The fish that are in the building are amazing but much of it is stuffed. Most of it is in Japanese so I didn't understand it anyway. It's worth $10 entrance in you are already in...More

The only way to get to this place is by bus or taxi from the JR station. The cost is 1,600 yen and is small and crowed with tiny displays of sea life. Skip this place as you will be disappointed that you spent your...More

This looked fascinating: a deep sea aquarium! Not just any fish, but weird creatures from the bottom of the sea. And the fact that the aquarium only had Japanese reviews made it even more mysterious. Only one drawback: the city of Numazu is very difficult...More
