    Aichi Pref. Nagoyashi Minato-ku Minatomachi 1-3
    This large aquarium is located in Minato Ward, Nagoya City. It is comprised of two buildings; the North Building and the South Building. The South Building is notable for exhibits that recreate five parts of the world's oceans, namely Japan, Australia, the Equator, Antarctica, and the deep sea. Check out the ''sardine tornado'' in its large tank as well. The North Building, which is themed around Cetacea classified marine mammals, displays species including the common bottlenose dolphin and beluga whales. Its biggest attraction is the dolphin shows held in its main pool, which happens to be Japan's largest. The dynamic performances are popular with people of all ages.

    When cetaceans face an aggressor in the wild, they are able to swim away. When they are in captivity like in Nagoya Aquarium, there is nowhere to go but to live with them in such a confined space...

    Aichi Pref. Hekinanshi Hamamachi 2-3
    This aquarium is situated on National Route 247 in Hamamachi, Hekinan City. Displaying sea life from across the country, exhibits include a huge 200-ton tank containing Japanese coastal and migratory fish, a jellyfish exhibit, and a sea turtle exhibit. The museum added a new biotope exhibit in 2019.

    リニューアルして水槽や魚の種類も変わったそうですが、こじんまりした素朴な水族館です。 大水槽には近海の魚が沢山です。餌やりの時間に大水槽の前にある椅子に座ってのんびり過ごすのも◎ また、」魚の特性を利用した展示のしかたや絶滅危惧種の魚や生き物を守る活動をしているのも 見る側にとっては勉強になります。小さなお子さんも楽しく学べるかな… プライスが安いのも魅力です。

    Aichi Pref. Gamagorishi Takeshimachou 1-6
    The old fashioned exterior of this aquarium speaks of its long history; inside, you’ll find some 4,500 marine creatures comprised of 500 species. The aquarium displays both freshwater and seawater life. Many of the informational cards and posters in the aquarium were hand-written by the staff themselves. Visitors appreciate the easy-to-understand content. The aquarium also goes to efforts to routinely change the content of their exhibits. The cute sea lion shows are popular with adults as well as children.

Aichi Areas

around-area-map

Aichi is a prefecture of great natural beauty with Nagoya city at its heart, a busy hub home to a labyrinth of underground shops and the 17th-century Nagoya Castle. Castles are easy to find in this history-rich prefecture, but the highlight for history buffs has to be the Museum Meiji-mura, where preserved buildings from the turn of the 20th century are displayed in all their grandeur in an outdoor museum.
