イルカショー、ラッコの餌やり、ペンギンの散歩、大水槽とトンネル、日本海の魚はもちろんエイもウツボも熱帯の魚も、盛りだくさんで楽しめます。水族館からは海が見えないけど、歩いて1分で海岸。孵化に成功したとの解説、ノドグロの水槽に圧倒されました。時間がなかったので、タクシー使いましたが、市内循環バスで行くことができます。Everyone enjoy this aquarium! You can take a City Circular bus from Niigata station.

You should pay 1200yen. Dolphin Show was so fun, they are so cute. And sealions were so fabulous. You can touch fishes and seastars.

Located in the lip of Japan Sea, this modern-built aquarium provides a cozy atmosphere to bring your whole family. They have interactive zones for kids, allow them to touch several animals and make up some animal puzzles. As one of aquarium fans, I might say...More

I found the city of Niigata quite boring when I went there for a conference but this place was really awesome! It's not expensive compared to other similar places in Japan (1080 yen for adults) and it keeps you entertained for 2-3 hours easily. Lot...More

I've been to some pretty spectacular aquariums worldwide and never intended to spend any time at this relatively small one in Niigata. But I became extremely thirsty while riding the Niigata City Loop bus and decided to get off here, just to get something to...More

Beautiful aquarium. Smalll but with great exhibits. We enjoyed the otter tank and feeding time. All the exhibits are in Japanese but it does not matter. Courteous and helpful staff.

This is a little aquarium for the younger kids. They gear it towards teaching kids about marine life so it's very education... if you can speak Japanese. There are quite a few shows throughout the day with the dolphin one being the highlight of the...More
