Okinawa Churaumi Aquarium Reviews
4年ぶりに訪れましたがいつ来ても大水槽は圧巻で暫く立ち尽くしてしまいます．子供も大喜びでした．今回閉館前に初めて行ったのですが，当然イベントは終わっておりましたが人が圧倒的に少なく，大変快適でした． more »It visited for the first time in four years, but whenever i came, the large water tank was a masterpiece and i would stand for a while. The child was also overjoyed. I went there for the first time before closing this time, but the event was finished of course, but there were overwhelmingly few people, and it was very comfortable.
娘が初めてなので、数年ぶりに訪問しました。 相変わらず建物も景色もきれいです。 展示している内容に目新しさはないですが、それでも一度は行く価値はあります。 ただ、大半が中国人？で展示物の前は占領されていました。 行かれる方は不愉快な思いするのを覚悟してください。 more »It was my first time to visit my daughter, so I visited her for the first time in a few years. The building and the scenery are still beautiful. There is no novelty in the content sit on display, but it is still worth going once. However, the majority are Chinese In front of the exhibits were occupied. If you go, be prepared to feel uncomfortable.
This is an excellent aquarium. There are many activities and many kinds of aquatic animals. Suitable to bring families and children to visit. There is an inside restaurant that can watch whale sharks closely which is free but must be booked and able to sit for 30 minutes. The external tribute has exhibited sea turtles and dolphins. There will be a dolphin show around. Which is free of charge.
Some aquariums are built for tourists, some for education, some for kids. This aquarium struck the perfect balance between all three demographics. The walking route is linear, so it's nearly impossible to get lost or separated from your kids. The tanks are numerous and nicely built. The fish are colorful and lively. Lots of interesting and interactive kiosks to attract the kids' attention. Free parking garages. Elevators take way too long. You're better off folding up your strollers and tell your kids to use the staircases.
