The concrete pens weren’t so clean and in my opinion it’s sad to see these cetaceans which were forcefully taken from the wild in Taiji, trained to perform for humans. Some had what appeared to have bruises and were fed dead fish each time they successfully performed a trick. I don’t think I can honestly support such entertainment. But there are families with kids who seem happy enough.

I always visit zoo and Sea World in many places. More than getting knowledge, I wish the fee I pay will help the places having income to take good care of the animals they have and help in conservation their species.
For Kamogawa Sea World, overall area is nice. It is located at the beach front so you could walk on the beach from the parking lot. The exhibition and how to present knowledge are good. There are many shows of animal, it is fun to watch. I experienced of taking picture with the smiling seal by purchasing activity ticket after the show. I had lunch at the Restaurant Ocean which there are windows that could see killer whale underwater. It is good experience that I could see how they swim and react to each other.
But I found out from watching them that they were trying to find small piece of fish flowing in the water and eat them. They are hungry. After showing, I saw the whale tried to ask more food from the trainer but he didn't give them. I know that while showing, they will get reward from the trainer and that may cause them to limit their food but it is a kind of forcing and torture them. Seeing them swimming, they were not happy like when they were acting in showing time. In my opinion, just having them for knowledge and raising sense of preservation for visitors but no showing is the best.

This is a great seaworld resort. The Dolphins and Orca show is better than Seaworld San Diego. You have to drive or take the train from Tokyo.

Orcas and trainers were just so beautifully connected. The orcas performance was good but the friendship between those two were so wonderful! 82 year old mom enjoyed it so much with tears.

シャチのショーは、観るというより”体験”です。水着をオススメします。その場で売っているポンチョを着ていても濡れたので、ショーの後でTシャツとタオルを買いました。それでも、”体験”は後悔しない思い出になりました。また行きたいです。ショー以外の展示もゆっくり観れて、全体的に満足度は高いです。
The killer whale show is more of an “experience” than watching. I recommend swimwear. Even though I was wearing ponchos sold on the spot, I got wet, so I bought a T-shirt and towel after the show. Still, “experience” became a memory that I would not regret. I want to go again. You can watch the exhibitions other than the show slowly, and overall satisfaction is high.

Located right by the water. All shows were great. Killer whales were the best among the four. Lots of excitement and applause from the audience throughout the performance.

There are many amazing shows from lovely and clever animals especially belugas and killer whales. There are many tanks filled with sea creatures in different environments. They are interesting. I love this place and recommend everyone to visit.

Back in the 70's & 80's this was once of the best places to go in Chiba. Now Kamogawa is deserted. The town is a ghost of what it once it was. I blame Tokyo Disneyland. Like so many fun parks in Japan its time is literally over. Like Namegawa Island and so many others it will no doubt soon close. A real shame.

Went on Tuesday, so there were no crowds.

Weather was cool but not too windy, so we ate by the seafront. The snacks were not really overpriced for theme parks. Eg 300-400 yen for corn cob. We enjoyed listening to roar of ocean.

The animals were lively & swimming happily, unlike those in Hong Kong & Singapore aquariums. The Sunfish was interesting but its tank looked small for its size. Quite a lot of the animals, except sealions & walruses, seemed to enjoy looking at visitors (?) They would swim near when my girl went to the glass.

We were slightly concerned abt overcrowding for the dolphins & Beluga whales as their tanks looked small. But the dolphins & trainers looked really attached to each other during the show. We enjoyed the show although they were typical dolphin acts. The dolphin stadium was a little run-down.

Can't tell much abt the Beluga cos there wasn't much interaction in its show. We did learn a bit abt echolocation. The Beluga could sort of imitate human sounds.

We simply loved the awesome orca performance & the splashing. Such beauty & grace & power. The lower steps were totally cleared after a few gigantic splashes. Weather was abt 15 degrees

The sealion show was fun too but u need to understand basic Japanese to enjoy the friendly banter (voice-over) of the sealion family.

My nine-year-old enjoyed the trip very much & bought some souvenirs at gift shop.
