The price is quite cheap compared to what you get. Only 2,000 JPY for entry fee. Very easy to travel to by metro (Nagoyago station). There were 3 orcas, 5-6 belugas, and a lot of dolphin. Must visit if you are around nagoya.

A nice place to spend a day wandering among the exhibits & catching their Orca, Dolphin shows. Daily subway pass holders get a discount on entrance tickets.

The show that catch our attention is the orcas show. It is quite cool! My 5years old daughter is so happy seeing all those orcas for the first time. They also have some big white bellugas. Quite awesome and cute!

It is a good place to visit with children. Good staff and maintenance. Different types of living beings from the sea. Food services are not good. The penguins walk could be skipped. They not seem to be happy. Indoor and outdoor attractions.

Personally. I really enjoyed it. I paid 2400 yen instead of 2000yen cause I do believe the 2400 yen covers the 3 shows (dolphin, orca, and beluga). However, I think for the Japanese people, it's more about the honour system. Regardless, it was pretty straight...More

Nice aquarium and not as large as the one in Okinawa but still fun to go. Perfect for half a day. There is a Red Lobster next to it and we love the food there.

If you want to see the Dolphin and Seal shows (which I highly recommend) then I would say to allocate about 3 to 3.5 hours depending on the show schedules, if not then it's probably about a 1.5 to 2 hour activity. I think... More
