Very nice little aquarium. Not so many things but what they have is done very well in a nice modern complex. We went on a weekday and it was like we had the place to ourselves. The dolphin show was very good, especially in the...More

You might not be able to read most of the signs if you don't understand Japanese but still, a fantastic place to see marine life. Just seems a bit small especially for the larger animals. DO catch the dolphin show. Also, love, LOVED their jellyfish...More

We had a lovely afternoon here. Very easy to access from navy base area. The fish are fantastic. This is not as massive as some aquariums in the states...but the specimens are really different and interesting. Great dolphin exhibit. The BIGGEST turtles I've ever seen...More

Took my family here today. Fairly cheap admission. The main tank is pretty cool and they do feeding shows etc. You can get pretty close to the dolphins and there are a few exhibits you can touch

Enjoyable. Lots of displays to look at. Expect about one hour, maybe more, to view all of the displays. I would consider this a very enjoyable trip for children ages 4-15 probably enjoy the most.

Probably not the most exciting as a stand-alone trip, but works as a great add-on if you are already seeing things in the area (i.e. a day fishing, going on the 99 islands tour, exploring the boardwalk with your kids). Very clean, well maintained. Definitely...More
