Fancy Date Spot: The Aquarium at Night

After 17:00, it becomes Night KAIYUKAN, a dimly lit aquarium. Seeing the lives of sea creatures different from daytime is really romantic. It is a great spot for a fancy date with lovely performance of light and sound.

Feeding Times

Feeding times give you a chance to see animals come closer to the acrylic window of an exhibit tank and be a lot more active than usual. River otters, sea otters and penguins look so charming and cute when they eat.
