    Kouchi Pref. Kouchishi Urado 778 Inside Keihin Park
    You’ll find this aquarium in the wonderfully scenic Katsurahama seashore in Kochi Prefecture. It has been around for over 70 years. Approximately 250 species of fish and marine wildlife can be found here, with a focus on rare fish and schools of Japanese lates that make their home in Tosa Bay. Visitors can also feed sea turtles and penguins, get close and personal with clownfish and doctorfish, watch a sea lion show, and enjoy several other activities and events throughout the year.

    This little aquarium cannot compete with larger locations in terms of numbers of animals or exhibits. By contrast, it is not very crowded so you can get right up to the exhibits and spend time...

    Kouchi Pref. Tosashimizushi Misaki 4032
    This aquarium is located on the side of Ashizuri Sunny Road in Imashiba, Misaki, Tosashimizu City. The aquarium, which has a theme of “the Waters of Tosa and the Fish of the Kuroshio Current,” is home to around 3,000 fish and aquatic invertebrates representing 200 varieties of sea life. The facility includes a central cylindrical marine tank, which is nine meters wide and six meters tall, a sunfish tank, a multipurpose tank used to raise green sea turtles and spotted seals, a touching tank where visitors can touch sea creatures such as hermit crabs and sea urchin, and more.

    都会の水族館の様に、大きく種類が多くはありませんが、土佐清水近海の魚を中心に、近海の魚類が、かなり揃えられています。こちらでの目玉展示は、やはり、マンボウではないでしょうか。愛嬌あるマンボウを見るだけでも価値はあると思います。また、ネットで、ホームページから割引券をダウンロードすれば、かなりお得に入場することが出来ますので、お忘れなく。

Kochi Main Areas

The largest of Shikoku’s prefectures, Kochi is endowed with some of the island’s most exceptional sand beaches lining the Pacific Ocean, which narrows into the Shimanto-gawa, a huge river that stretches 196 kilometers into the prefecture, passing verdant mountains and hosting countless riverside activities. Whether you’re a pilgrim or not, Kochi’s 16 Buddhist temples that make up one leg of the Shikoku Pilgrimage are worth a visit, particularly Chikurin-ji for its five-tier pagoda.
