    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.

    This place was a great surprise. The vast collection of marine life here was unbelievable. ¥500 for adults. The touching pool was better than any Ive seen at any aquarium worldwide. Well done.

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.
