When Kerrie said she wanted to visit an aquarium whose specialty was jellyfish I thought she'd finally lost the plot. But it was amazing ! The aquarium has a lot more than just jellyfish, but there is no doubt that jellyfish are their "thing" and...More

とても楽しかった。平日に行ったから学校の団体が多くてちょっと混んでいてけど、きれいで感動した。隣の日本海は屋上から見える。 Beautiful main jellyfish tank. It was like real magic. I really liked it. I was surprised by the variety of jellyfish. You can spend a long time there. And the ice cream has jellyfish inside! There were many couples and families. There might be...More

Seaturtle is so cute!! l recommend you visit Kamo Aqua Museum! You will enjoy timeヾ(´ー`)ノ 館内は見所まんさいで、個人的には2時間で見足りなかったです。もっと時間欲しかった クラゲの展示は種類と量の多さに圧倒されました。不思議な世界でした クラゲのアイスやクラゲを使った麺も売っていて、興味は湧きましたが今回はやめておきました(笑) いきものに触れるコーナーもあって楽しかったです 個人的には海ガメがいたことが嬉しかったです。海ガメ好きなので 行く前ははクラゲの展示だけなのかなと思ってましたが、他にも色々な生物の展示やショーもあったので大満足です 行って良かったです!

Small and nice overall. The jellyfish displays are impressive. The habitats provided to the mammals and the turtles were less impressive. This was a nice way to spend a few hours, it isn’t a full day outing by any stretch. It is a good value...More

Looking at jellyfish swimming will really sooth your soul. It is exceptional experience to reset your stressed daily life. Guaranteed to see something better after visiting this place.

Small aquarium with jellyfishes being its main attraction. It's well kept, clean and enjoyable. Kids will have a fun time. There is also a sea lion show and some tanks with marine mammals.

Another spotlessly clean aquarium in Japan! This aquarium specializes in jellyfish, and as you can see from the pictures, there are a couple of enormous tanks of them, bigger than I have ever seen. Bizarrely, the music played over the loudspeakers throughout the aquarium is...More
