  • On the opposite side of the Sasaki Fire Station, there are public buses to the Aquarium, but there are more people going to the Aquarium that day, and stop for a short walk to the entrance. Enterprises are really good, but unfortunately the enterprise aquarium does not have too many note slots of goods, otherwise there must be a lot of souvenirs. In-room meals have a business-style menu.

  • Opened in 1959, it is a historic aquarium. Penguin-based, although the museum is small, but well-equipped. It is worth mentioning that the museum can wear penguin clothes for free to take pictures. (Foreign students can be free of charge on the basis of a card and student card)

  • Such a beautiful little aquarium/zoo for penguin lovers! I really felt like I was able to get in touch and close to the amazing penguins there. We were able to watch the feeding time shows where they feed the different kinds of penguins and tell fun facts about them!
  • The place maybe a little smaller than expected. But the amount of penguins they have are plenty and amazing. We had teenagers and they enjoyed themselves very much
