Entry fee is 2300yen for adults. Loved it there and felt that we had tons of fun. There's African penguins (first time seeing penguins), dolphins, otters, seals and a lot of cute sea animals.

Good place to visit in Fukuoka province, Japan. Can take train or ferry from city to get there. Very close to a beautiful flower park. Will be better if have more contents in English
