I'm a former marine and freshwater aquarium hobbyist, who likes visiting public aquaria. This one wasn't so bad; a good number of small (50-200 gallon) tanks with local and international fish (about 5 of which are reef tanks, the rest only for a few organisms), two fairly big interactive pools with tidepool creatures and another with rays. I think these... More

We visited in October to catch the Penguin Parade after catching a documentary on the park on NHK. My wife and I had fun with the attractions available at the park. Being small, we didn't have to walk around much to enjoy everything. You will need to arrive early in the morning so that you can plan and maximize your... More

The Asahiyama zoo didn't have the penguin parade in summer but the Noboribetsu Marine Park did so my kid had a great time to see the penguins. We also watched the dolphin show as well. This is not a big park and you can spend about 2 to 3 hours there. A lovely park for kids!

Good for families where you don't have to spend much energy on walk. Head to this park if you wanted a relax time here. The compound is small but still have a lot to things to see. Convenient to go as it is at walking distance from the JR station. Save you the troublesome to get a public transport.

Before paying the ¥2450 per person admission, if you drove there, you'd have to pay ¥500 to park your car. However the facility with an European castle shaped Aquarium, complete with a moat, must have cost a lot of money every year to maintain. I had imagined the park to be much bigger, but I was wrong. It's full of... More

This was a good outing for the sea-creature lovers in my family (incl 2 boys aged 9 and 13). We were fascinated by how an aquarium could be housed in a castle and many of the exhibits were equally fascinating, including moon jellyfish and sea angels. We managed to catch the seal feeding, sardine symphony, dolphin show, penguin parade and... More

It was a small marine park and one should not have too high an expectation. The most interesting part was certainly the penguin parade. On my visit, there were 5 king penguins and 6 African ones - they are cute, behave well and would walk on their own without being forced or made to by offer of food. The rest... More

even it is small but still good to go. the animal shows are one by one so you won't miss any of them. the indoor poor and thousands of different retiles and sea animals are good to visit

My Wife and I visited this place during our stay in Noboribetsu in early Feb. It is just a couple of minutes walk from JR Station. There were different shows in the park - seal show, dolphin show, sardine feeding and penguin walk. Felt all the shows were nice, we both liked the penguin walk and dolphin show the most.... More
