This was the 1st day trip of my Japan Tour which made my 1st impression awesome. This is such a big aquarium, huge tank made as natural habitat with enough space for each and every species. We spent more than 3 hours by capturing epic pictures of species.The cost line attached to this always provides breathtaking view if there is a clear weather. All in all this is an attractive place for kids and families. Highly recommended..

Definitely not the best one I’ve been to, but a truly unique one. Many from japan’s Local seas. Spent around 3 hours there. Had a great time with my parents.

There is so much to see and take in at this aquarium, from the Dolphin and Sea Lion shows to Sharks and other aqua species . My personal favourite, the puffins. You can spend a day as there is lots to see and no point in rushing. Enjoy lunch and snacks and make sure to grab souvenirs before leaving. Afterwards, if the weather is nice take a stroll along the coast line as the views are breathtaking.

Even though it wasn't a planned visit, we weren't disappointed and actually quite enjoyed ourselves there. If you have school-going children, especially the younger ones, you will be glad that there's an entire floor of playground and aqua displays for them to enjoy, and ample seats at the side for parents to rest.
Ticket is slightly pricey at 1800yen (adult).

3歳の子供と訪れました。
海に面した絶好のロケーションで、建物はとても広く、展示物も非常に見やすいです。特に随所に階段式のベンチがあったりして、ゆっくり見ることもできます。
イルカショーも室内のため、雨の心配もなく、アシカショーも工夫が施されていて楽しいです。また子供連れにはうれしい、アスレチック(小学生未満)があり、トイレもすべて障害者用トイレにおむつを捨てるボックスや、ビニール袋も完備。ここまで至りりつくせりは、水族館で初です。文句なくNo.1の水族館でした。

I've never been to such a wonderful aquarium like this before!
Especially, I recommend to such a family which has small children.
This aquarium faces to the ocean and there is the wonderful national park near this aquarium. You might spend your time in a whole of day.
You can see the dolphin show inside the dome. Don't need to take an umbrella when go to this aquarium.
And also, you can see a lot kinds of Shark. You might enjoy if you like the shark :-)
Unfortunately, I couldn't see some signs in English. But if you like Japanese culture and people, don't hesitate to ask the staff in easy English or Japanese. They are very kind. They would help you.
And, You must go there by the car. You can go there by the train and bus but not convenience.

Went with a Japanese friend and his sons. We had a great time! The show was funny and included in the admission. The outdoor exhibits were different than other aquariums I have been too. Lots of fun. The shark tank is huge! Pretty cool!

World is a steel-framed, reinforced concrete five-storey building, with an additional seventh floor observation room. Form the observation room, you can look out on to the beach. We took lots of pictures and even saw the second half of the aqua viewing show. This was where a scuba diver with an underwater camera took videos of the fish while two hosts, one on the first floor and the other on the second floor, entertained the audience and answered questions about the fish in the tank.
One of the other things we did at the aquarium was watched the live performances of dolphins and California sea lions. When we were first going to see the show, they weren’t allowing anyone else to enter and the next show wasn’t for another two hours. Because of this, I would recommend you check the show times when you first get there, so you don’t have to wait like we did. Even though we got there 30 minutes before the next show started, we almost had to sand during the whole show because there weren’t enough seats.

We took our kids here for the morning and they loved it! All the exhibits have english names for the animals, which makes it easy for foreigners to enjoy.

The aquarium is reknown for their sharks and they have two massive tanks full of sharks of all different sizes and shapes, including some incredibly large sand tiger sharks. They also have a whole set of exhibits that showcase native fish off the Ibaraki coast which was cool to see. The kids loved the penguin show and there is also a seal/sea lion show that we didn't see. Upstairs they had an area for kids to touch sea life and a highlight was a tankful of little fish that cleaned dead skin off your hands when you dipped them underwater.

The gift shop was enormous and there were a couple of restaurants to enjoy as well.

All in all a fun and educational attraction that is great for families!
