Having been to Osaka's Kaiyukan Aquarium, I was expecting more of the same here. However, this aquarium is more akin to SeaWorld than Kaiyukan. Upon stepping inside, you will see the dolphins and orcas almost immediately. I have some reservations about animals kept in captivity...More

There is so much to see, so make sure to come early! The penguin area was my favorite. Unfortunately I missed most of the shows for the animals, so make sure to keep track of time and locations for shows if they are a priority.

upon entering the aquarium, you are greeted with the orca and dolphins! They are in a huge tank that filled up the place and the size is impressive for Japan. The show was very good and the range of fish they had was great too.

Its a great place for family outing, regardless of age, the aquarium is nice place. The killer whales and dolphins are interesting to watch and you can spend half a day at the attraction.

We spent a few hours here one day while in Nagoya in November 2017. While they have some good attractions that are nice to see (such as the Orcas and Beluga Whales) I did not find the aquarium to be something you absolutely have to...More

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!
