  • We went on weekday and the crowd is definitely lesser. Aside from the penguin parade, don't miss out the dolphins and sea lion shows. It was great and entertaining. We miss the sardines fish show...

  • The main building has a lot of smallish tanks, and some other displays. On the higher level there are some pools where you can touch the starfish, crabs etc. There is also 2 tunnels (cold and warm water fish). Outside the building are various pools with dolphins and sea lions. It's a nice day out and plenty of parking. The marine park is located close to noboribetsu onsen train station.
  • Penguin parades are few times a day with no barrier between you and the birds in the open. Sea lion show was fun; pay additional ¥1000 for feeding and photo shoot (a group of up to 5 pax). Dolphin show (3 or 4 dolphins). All shows are few times a day. You can touch starfishes, sea cucumbers, sea urchins and stingrays in indoor petting pools. Good value for money and plenty of fun for the family! Remember to buy 3-park ticket (cash only, valid for immediate 3 days) from Noboribetsu Bus Terminal.🐧🐬🐠
