Located at the Kokusai Street in the heart of Naha, this is the official souvenir shop of the Churaumi Aquarium - one of the world's best. They have a few fish tanks that offer a glimpse of the aquarium, lots of souvenirs and a cafe, where you can purchase advance tickets to the aquarium, located 90 km from Naha. Worth a visit.

Umichurara aquarium is one of the largest aquariums of its kind a 90 Km Drive from Naha , its best to get an early start the aquarium opens from 10 AM to 10 pm and in order to catch all the shows its best to get there early.

the Dolphin show is not to be missed and there are only 3 shows a day so better be on time , there have several sharks and fishes in a huge central tank and the viewing can be done from several decks , there is also a cafe if you want rest your legs and grab a bite or just sit around.

there are several small cafes around and the food is reasonably priced.
once done with the fishes you can take a stroll down to the Emerald beach ( however it was closed when we visited due to typhoon alert) All in all a day well spent.

Do visit.

It depends on the day but the day we went, it was so crowded that we were like pushed around in the aquarium and could not enjoy observing the fish and sea creatures. The buildings and facilities are old and not quite fascinating.

Its a very nice aquarium for which you may spend the whole day there. Whale shark is extraordinary. Just cannot find this anywhere else in the world. In addition, there is a restaurant in the aquarium and you may queue for the table close to the aquarium. The food there was just very average but there was no other choice.

Dolphin performance was good too. A must see for me and my family.

There is a beautiful beach besides it for which I don't have enough time to take a visit this time. May visit it again when I go to Okinawa in the future.

PS. Park No. 7 is the closest park to the aquarium. Driving is much more convenient way to visit the aquarium.

這是一個非常漂亮的水族館,您可以在那裡度過一整天。 鯨鯊是非凡的。 在世界其他任何地方都找不到這個。 此外,水族館還有一家餐廳,您可以在靠近水族館的桌子排隊。 那裡的食物很平均,但別無選擇。

海豚表演現也很好。 我和我的家人是必須看。

除了它之外還有一個美麗的海灘,這次我沒有足夠的時間去參觀。 我將來去沖繩時可能再次訪問它。

PS。 7號停車場是離水族館最近的停車場。 駕車是參觀水族館更方便的方式。

I was there when this aquarium was brand new for the 1975 World Expo. One of few facilities left from the Expo. At the time, I think it had the biggest tank in the world. It's still good to visit and there is a restaurant where you can have your meal while sitting right next to one of the tanks. The main eye-catcher are the 2 big whale sharks - they are magnificent. The entrance fee is very reasonable compared to some aquariums I have been to in USA. When I visited, there were so many tour groups from Asia, it was fairly crowded. It was a Saturday when I went but, it looks like it's very busy every day of the week but Wednesdays and Thursdays might be less crowded on average.

Ok. I admit it. We flew to Okinawa from Osaka just to go to this aquarium. I’m so glad I did! Incredibly beautiful. Expansive! Plan on being here six hours or more. Plan early if you didn’t rent a car (Okinawa had age restrictions, and another tourist from Germany said his international license had to be “converted “ to a Japanese one..)use the express bus about 2000 yen each way. I WOULD DO IT AGAIN!

This is one of the biggest and best aquarium I have visited in the world.The main attraction is the huge water tank located in the centre of the building with different species of fish and marine life inside.The star performers are the 2 giant whale sharks.It is awesome watching the species swimming inside the tank .There are seating and viewing areas in the upper levels of the tank.If you need more time viewing have a drink in the basement cafe.Select a table next to the tank for a fascinating experience.There are other outdoor marine exhibits /activities including dolphin shows.A "must go" attraction especially for families with young children.

Very nice large aquarium. Also very crowded! They offered a dolphin show - such as you would see at Marine World in the US. Large grounds could easily have spent half a day here.
