    Fukushima Pref. Iwakishi Onahama Tatsumichou 50
    An aquarium standing on Onahama second Port’s Pier facing the Pacific Ocean. As befitting its location at the point where the Japan Current and Kurile Current collide, the aquarium’s permanent exhibit is dedicated to the theme of ocean fronts where two bodies of water meet. The aquarium is also notable for its many experience-based learning facilities, including the Aquamarine Egg, which has hands-on exhibits for children; and Janome Beach, one of the largest touch pools in the world. The facility is also dedicated to research and conserving the environments of marine creatures threatened with extinction.

    Nice variety of local and tropical environments. Informative for older children, tropical fish for young children to follow, relaxing for adults.

    Fukushima Pref. Iwakishi Onahama Tatsumichou 43-1
    20 minutes by car from the Iwaki-Yumoto Interchange. A tourism and shopping facility located in Iwaki Onahama Minato Oasis. Bustling with tourists, the facility hosts a seafood market selling fresh delicacies just brought in from Onahama Port, restaurants, souvenir shops, and more under the catchphrase, “everything good in Iwaki.” The seafood rice bowl and handmade soba noodle set has remained a popular dish for visitors to enjoy here since it opened 20 years ago. The Iwaki Day Cruise, a sightseeing ship which makes short trips around the bay, is also a popular activity for visitors to enjoy.

    Fukushima Pref. Iwakishi Joubanyumotomachi Mukaida 3-1
    The Iwaki Coal & Fossil Museum is dedicated to fossils and to the history of the coal-mining industry. There are displays of many precious fossils from all over the world, with the centerpiece being the Futabasaurus suzukii plesiosaur skeleton that was discovered in the Futaba Town of Iwaki City. The coal exhibition area has displays on the history of coal’s use as a fuel, focusing on the coal that used to be mined in the Iwaki region, and on the history of coal-mining. This part of the Museum includes a very authentic reproduction of part of a coal mine, which was used as a filming location for the movie “Hula Girls.”

    Nice place to visit quickly, if in the area. Pretty good amount of fossils and sorts and you can get a little glimps into the japanese coal mining.
