  • The sea is a part of Joetsu’s culture, from its location on the Sea of Japan to the mermaid themes that haunt its stories. With a city this close to the sea, a captivating aquarium fits perfectly. Joetsu Municipal Aquarium Umigatari captures the essence of sea-life and is a treasure of the city. The museum has over 10,000 animals of 400 over different species, including 100 Magellan penguins that were raised in Japan. In addition to a gorgeous viewing tank, visitors can experience an exciting dolphin show in the outdoor arena. The calm aquatic atmosphere is a joy for all seasons and should be a must-see on any Joetsu itinerary.
