  • The old ness of the facility is undeniable, but the exhibition methods and events are well-devised, and i enjoyed it very much! You can feel the enthusiasm of your employees.

  • It is a petting aquarium with zero sense of distance. You can touch walrus, penguins and sea lions. The child was most pleased with the catch ball with the dolphin. Other aquariums and dolphin-led gardens charge a fee, but Ise Sea Paradise is free and you can touch it whenever you want. Dolphins also play, so you can have a great experience. There is a famous aquarium when going to the south for a moment, but I personally recommend here.

  • I've never seen so many creatures of the sea mistreated to this scale. Please do not waste your money supporting this inhumane facility. Maybe 5% of the animals have the correct housing and space. The worst cases are the walrus, sea lions, sea turtle and sharks. Guinea pigs were cute at least.
  • First of all, this doesn’t reflect on the staff. The staff seemed to care very much for the animals and did the best with the environment they were given to work with. But, the aquarium was not good. The animals (specifically the sea lions, walruses, and the sawfish) were way too big for the spaces they were given- some of them couldn’t even turn around fully. That, and it wasn’t the cleanest either. Please don’t support this place if you can help it!
