The aquarium also holds a variety of shows, including a penguin walk, sea and river otter feedings, and dolphin and sea lion performances. The grounds also host a shop, restaurant, and sea fishing center.
Long, thin Ishikawa prefecture runs along the Sea of Japan up into Noto Peninsula. Highlights of the seaside towns lining the west coast include Kanazawa, often described as a "Little Kyoto" thanks to its old wooden tea houses and geisha culture as well as its picturesque Japanese garden, Kenroku-en.
