The Kinosaki Marine World is an aquarium united with nature where the Japanese sea view unfolds before your eyes.Not only can you enjoy the sea beings in each area, you can also enjoy many exciting shows.Also you can hold sea urchins, starfish etc in your palm and you can take a walk with the penguins. It's an amazing experience.Our specialty is our Dolphin and Seal show which changes every year. It's a must see ! Many animals appear as well as dolphins and sealions at the show stadium where the Japan Sea spreads through in the background.Moreover, through the 5cm thick glass and Tube area you can observe various other sea beings.Unique experiences are awaiting you. See you soon!

The Aquarium shows some nice fish and other sealife and there are many interactive shows for kids. It is not very big and costs are 2400 yen per person

Watch children fishing. They can eat their catch, as the kiosk will prepare the fish thy have caught. Watch the dolphin show and look at the Sea of Japan!
