“Another great aquarium in Japan”
Reviewed June 15, 2013

You can find more than just fish in this aquarium. There are four orca here and you can catch the orca show at the main pool daily. Besides the orca show, there is also the dolphins show in which these smart little creatures can stun you with their impressive moves. A great place not to be missed when you are in Nagoya.

“Excellent Dolphin Performance”
Reviewed June 5, 2013

We visited for about 3 hours and saw everything the aquarium had to offer, lots to see for a 6 year old, the dolphin performance was spectacular with very high jumps. Unfortunately the Orca performance was cancelled on the day of our visit.

“Amazing animals in an impressive setting”
Reviewed May 29, 2013

If you believe that keeping animals in captivity is cruel then I wouldn't recommend this experience. But otherwise, don't miss this if you visit Nagoya. The dolphins, orcas, belugas and other sea creatures appear to be well fed and cared for and they put on an amazing show. The display of various other aquatic life is both fascinating and educational. We spent nearly 3 hours there and could easily have passed an entire day if we'd had more time.

“Great place to go during summer”
Reviewed April 29, 2013

Dolphin show was great and the aquarium was not that bad, in fact I really do enjoy seeing sea-life being kept inside for the viewing pleasure of men.
