If you don't know by now, Aomori is famous for scallops. They are harvested in Mutsu Bay. The scallops there have an intense, sweetish scallop flavor. What makes Hakodate the dried scallop capital of Japan is because the scallops probably derive from nearby Aomori. Whenever...More

It's not Sea World, but it's still a good day trip for families with young children. Located outside Aomori, the aquarium is about an hour's driving time to get there from Misawa. It is the largest aquarium of the Tohoku region, and has over 500...More

Although it took forever to find, due to our lack of Japanese and not great signs, locate it and go! Have seen a few aquaria in our time, and usually not terribly happy after seeing conditions, this is actually quite nice. Not a big zoo...More

They had sharks, sting rays, Dolphins, octopi, jellyfish, and thousands of different fish, including pre-historic looking fish. It was an incredible, entertaining, and lovely visit!

This place is very reasonably priced and the drive without taking the toll road doesn't really add that much time and is quite beautiful. It was about $10 for adults and $5 for our elementary aged kiddos. You just purchase tickets from the ticket machine...More

Overall the aquarium was good, I just thought the tank enclosures seemed a bit small. They had all kinds of fish along with seals, penguins and dolphins. I appreciate the fact they had the fish information in English as well. The aquarium included dolphin shows,...More

After having visited many aquariums in Japan over the years, I can say that this one rivals many of the great smaller aquariums we have visited (the aquarium on Miyajima comes to mind). The exhibits are nicely presented and the indoor dolphin/sea lion show was...More

This is by far the worst aquarium I have ever been to. It started off good with the amphibian exhibits but went downhill after that. Most of the tanks/exhibits were too small, overcrowded and boring for the fish/mammals . You can actually see depressed fish...More
