    Kanagawa Pref. Fujisawashi Katasekaigan 2-19-1
    Nicknamed the “Enosui” by locals, this aquarium is located inside Shonan Kaigan Park. The aquarium’s beautiful exhibits, designed to evoke a wondrous undersea world, are quite popular. The spherical “Jellyfish Planet” aquarium houses 14 varieties of jellyfish lit up with beautiful lighting. Once every hour, the world’s first 3D projection mapped jellyfish show is held throughout the entire floor. Enoshima Aquarium is filled with entertainment. A school of some 8,000 Japanese sardines can be seen swimming in a giant aquarium replicating the environment of Sagami Bay. An edutainment facility, another exhibit at the aquarium maps ocean currents and presents the various sea life which visits the area seasonally.

  • Yokohama Omoshiro Aquarium

    Kanagawa Pref. Yokohamashi Naka-ku Yamashitachou 144 China Square Building 3F
    Located an eight minute walk from the Exit 2 of Motomachi-Chukagai Station on the Minatomirai Line. A fun and interesting aquarium modeled after an elementary school. With such elementary-school themed elements as a shoebox aquarium, principal’s office, and music room, the aquarium cares for some 300 different species of unique aquatic creatures. There’s also an experiment zone and quiz zone, visitors can not only look at but also learn about fish. There’s even a zone where aquariums and play equipment are combined together.

    I really enjoyed this aquarium but I felt bad fora few of the creatures there. Like the Japanese Lobster that was inside a very small tank inside of another tank of fish that he would normaly eat.

Kanagawa Main Areas


Kanagawa prefecture acts as an extension of the Tokyo metropolis that spills over into coastal towns, most notably Yokohama city, heavily populated and known for its Chinatown and seaside attractions. Just the right distance for a day trip out of Tokyo, Kanagawa is home to some of Tokyo’s most accessible beaches, including around Kamakura, best known for its Big Buddha. Visitors can also travel a little farther afield for a weekend at Hakone onsen town.
