A whole day went like a second due to the amazing programs at KSW. Amazing watertanks with hundreds of fish and other seacreatures. As a european it was amazing to see seaspiders and a japanese coralreef. Jellyfish area was like a moment in space. Realy nice and creative presentation in the dark just lights on the animals. Could not go away for like 25 minutes due to my daughter who wanted to observe the jellyfish again and again.

The delfin- and the orcashow is something the kids like but iam sure everyone knows the critics against these events despite the animals seemed to be healthy and could not see stress on them. (iam not an expert btw). In my country i had no chance to watch an orca from 8meter so it was a great experience for me as well.

The best facility is the restaurant where you can enjoy a nice meal meanwhile orcas swimming up and down at the other side of the windows.

At the KSWshop we could buy some realy nice souvenirs wich are unique and can use as educational material at home.

The wiew from the seaworld is also amazing. The wilde and opened Pacific just on the other side of the fence.

The park feels smallish but it’s just because it’s narrow. There were great shows. Very professional. It would have been nice for there to be some sort of translation. The sea lion show looked like it was very funny, but we couldn’t understand any of the jokes.

We decided on this out-of-the-way SeaWorld because it is one of the few aquariums in Asia Pacific to have Orcas (killer whales) in captivity. Seeing those orcas in action was an amazing experience. There are also a good selection of other sea mammals like the Beluga whales, dolphins etc. One can pay a fee to 'pat' the dolphins. All the shows are in Japanese but there are one or two trainers who speak really good American English but not for the shows. The Beluga whales show is a little disturbing for me as they were housed in a small tank (in my opinion) and the diver 'poked' or pressed the head of the whale to demonstrate the softness of the head. But imagine having to be 'pressed' a few times a day for 365 years, I don't think that's very nice. It should suffice to put that in a video and explain the softness of a beluga whale.
If you are easily perturbed by big creatures being housed in enclosed and limited space, this park is not for you. If not, it has a good selection of various sea mammals for you to enjoy.
Tips: If you stayed at Kamogawa Seaworld Hotel, they will give you an access card to the seaworld for free access daily. It is next to each other.
Train ride via Wakashio Express from Tokyo Station is rapid and a taxi ride of about 600-700 Yen from Awa Kamogawa station to the hotel for 5 minutes if you missed the free Seaworld/Hotel shuttle.

We spent a few hours inside park. It was enough to watch the three shows (unfortunately the beluga show was closed). Other than the shows, you can observe other animals too, there are special feeding time, lots of souvenir shops, and restaurants too. If you don't want to spend too much money on food, you can buy Japanese street food inside the park, like yakisoba or takoyaki.

There were lots of families with small children, the park is OK with baby strollers too.

Definitely a must-see, if you come to the southern Chiba region!

Because we stayed in Kamogawa the night before, we were able to get to SeaWorld around 10:30am and easily stayed busy until our bus back to Tokyo at 3pm.

The four performances took up 2 hours of time and contained quite a good variety of entertainment. The killer shark show was awesome because of the sheer mass of the animals, and the manatee show was very educational.

A major part of the appeal is its being located within a stone’s throw from the ocean, which made SeaWorld feel like a natural extension of the marine life’s native habitat.

SeaWorld seems like a must-do when visiting Kamogawa. I recommend going on a weekday to avoid having to fight the bigger crowds on the weekends.
