At Kaikyokan you can observe and inspect a wealth of marine life, including displays of puffer fish from all over the world. The aquarium also houses a collection of Humboldt penguins whose clumsy, sometimes comical demeanor transforms to grace and agility when viewed from below the surface. You'll also have the chance to watch dolphin and sea lion shows, as they re-enact a famous offshore samurai battle with their trainers, along with displays dedicated to colorful coral habitats, and those of the tidal flats. Owing to the region's obsession with the culinary delicacy of puffer fish, otherwise known as fugu, the puffer fish exhibit attracts lrge crowds, featuring around 100 different species. Bear in mind that during the winter months, the outdoor dolphin show can get cold, so dress accordingly.

夜の水族館と言う珍しさで19時頃に入場 館内は、それなりに薄暗くなってます イルカの水槽の前でスマホを構えると なん頭かのイルカがユックリ近づいてきます more »Admission around 19 o'clock in the unusual thing called the aquarium at night, the inside of the building is dimmed as such, and when you set up a smartphone in front of the dolphin's water tank, some dolphins approach yukuri
在外面看了一下。感覺是很新穎的設計。就在唐戶市場旁邊。但是感覺景點很細。所以就沒有進去。旁邊有個小遊樂場。 more »Look out. The feeling is very new. It's right next to the city of Tang. But the feeling is very clear. So there's no way to go. There's a small game next to it.
This an awesome aquarium, liked all of the fish exhibits, would have loved it if the coelacanth on display was alive instead of preserved. There were some pretty neat variations of puffy fish throughout the facility. Also if your are interested there is a fish market just a few minutes walk away if you want to try puffer fish as well.
Those who do not care about animal abuse might enjoy this place and feel good. I hate to see dolfins, sea lions, penguins and all other sea animals cooped up under poor conditions.
