Okinawa Churaumi Aquarium Reviews
처음 들어가서 보이는 수조가 정말 바닷속 같은 느낌을 줍니다. 하지만 태풍이 왔을 때라서 중간에 수족관이 폐쇄가 되어 마지막까지 자세히 보지는 못했어요. 오키나와 여행시 태풍이 있다면 태풍 전보다는 태풍 이후에 관람하세요. 태풍 직전에는 중간에라도 폐쇄될 가능성이 있어요. more »At first it looks like underwater Aquarium really went. But when I came in in the middle of a typhoon has been closed until the end of the aquarium did not look in detail. If you are travelling in Okinawa typhoon Typhoon after a hurricane than ever before. Even in the middle of the Typhoon is likely to be on the verge of shutting down.
4歳の娘と一緒に開園早々の時間に行きました。館内には様々な仕組みがあり子供は喜んでいましたが、途中からはあまりのお客さんの数に疲れてしまったようです。 大水槽の横にある、カフェはオススメです。絶景ですよ。 more »With 4-year-old daughter went to the early opening hours. Guests were delighted children and various mechanisms, but is tired of too many from the middle. Cafe located next to a large water tank is recommended. It is spectacular.
My family and I are nearing the close of our one year pass and I'm a little sad. I take my boys almost every holiday they have off of school and they love it! My 11 year old groans a bit, but now that we've discovered the many other things around the aquarium, he groans less. They LOVE the ropes outside of the aquarium and we've gone to the planetarium a couple of times. I still need to take them to the village! There's so much to do in that whole area, it's really amazing. The aquarium itself is pretty amazing. Large tanks with a huge variety of sea life and a huge tank with giant, slow-moving whale sharks I could sit and watch all day. The boys love the shark area, as well. Such a fun experience, though I won't renew our year pass. A year was enough for my kids, but I'm sure we'll be back to enjoy the other things around it, like the free dolphin show!
Amazing, fun tourist location. Great for whole family and any time you have guests visiting the island. You can spend a whole day here if you're so inclined, exploring the gardens and walks. Or you can keep it short if you just want to hit the aquarium and cultural center. There's plenty of parking, as well.
