The largest and most famous aquarium in this prefecture. There are many types of sharks. You can appreciate their powerful appearance.
The aquarium itself is nothing extraordinary, but there is an option (via drawing lots - not all groups applying can join) to join a facilities tour behind the scenes of how they run the aquarium. This is something I've never seen before and it was excellent. If you're in the area, I would recommend a visit, but it may not be worth a long journey to get there. Overall, the glass is more visible and the water less clear than other aquariums I have visited, but we had a great time.
