We arrived about 11am and already there were many people waiting in line to get in. As usual in Japan public places of interest are always overcrowded and people are lining up like sheep. Once inside you come to the viewing tanks of the dolphins...More

The dolphin show was one of its kind. It was great. Saw that performance twice. Also saw “penguin walk “but the penguins were in bad condition. Sea creatures collection was great.

The aquarium has 3 floors with north and south side. Spaceful and many attractions to see, but the walk path is quite confusing and may easily get lost. There's always show on the schedules, take the showtime table at the entrance. Great place for up...More
