The Churaumi main exhibition is whale sharks in a large tank. You are overwhelmed by it but at the same time you cannot stop seeing the elegant sharks.

Three whale sharks swimming in the pool are always so popular among guests.

You cannot miss it– the coral reef. The world first alive coral reef is largely kept. The number is 150! It has huge kinds.

The aquarium is not so big, but you want to keep your eyes on the large scale exhibition.

At the pool of “Kuroko no umi(Kuroko sea)”, there are three shark whales and mantas swimming in that place. You can taste a cup of tea near the pool seeing these fish at the cafe ocean blue that is popular. It might be good to take a break there.

You can watch closely for free in the “Iruka(dolphin) lagoon”. People who love dolphins cannot wait for that. It would be better to go there with your children since the place is for one day use.
