Good place for children cause there is an indoor playground. At the same time, it is great for couples cause i think it's pretty romatic here. The aquarium setting is dark and the tanks have pretty light setting, making the fishes look prettier when they...More

Lovely half day trip with the family. Combine the monkey mountain visit with this as they are right next to each other. Easy access with a bridge and lifts. We saw a couple of amazing shows like the dolphin show and the feeding show. We...More

One alternate to visit Beppu on rainy day. The aquarium has many kinds of fish and animal. Children enjoy seeing fishes and touching star fishes and sea cucumbers. Also they love to see outdoor activities, dolphines show and seal. Have fun there.

This was a nice aquarium, very popular with small children. There's an area where children can play and pet some animals like giant rabbits and tortoises, a dolphin show and some very good underwater windows into the tanks.

The fish here [sharks included] were of a variety that i have not seen in other places. The dolphin/porpoise show was nice and also amazing. The tank inside with all the fish and other sea life kept me watching for over an hour.

I really don't like seeing dolphins in small pools, and ditto for the walruses. The seals had a little more but the Caspian seal was a single individual with just a few items to "enrich" its rather plain small room. But the aquaria were very...More
