    Nagasaki Pref. Nagasakishi Shukumachi 3-16
    This aquarium houses around 180 penguins, including nine varieties of the total 18 that inhabit the Earth. It is a facility where one can see at once a host of penguin personalities including the large and gentle king penguin, the attractively-feathered macaroni penguin, and the curious gentoo penguin. One can also try feeding and petting the animals. In addition, Biotope, which replicates the Nagasaki woodland, is a popular spot with many age groups as a place to see seasonal plants and animals. 

    A little bit out of the way and not a lot of transport going that way. Enjoyable afternoon seeing different species of Penguins.

    An aquarium located in Kashimaecho. Sasebo City, Nagasaki Prefecture which focuses on presenting exhibits which recreate the diverse marine ecosystem of the Kujuku Islands. The Kujukushima Bay Grand Aquarium exhibit, home to some 13,000 individual marine creatures spread across 120 species illuminated by glittering sunlight, is the facility’s crown jewel. Some of the aquarium’s highlights include the soothing Jellyfish Symphony Dome in which jellyfish slowly float amidst phantasmal lights, and shows which show the fantastical abilities of the park’s dolphins. Note: Due to construction lasting from May 10 to July 5, 2017, dolphin shows will not be held until July 14, 2017.

Nagasaki Areas


This hidden corner of the country is rural Japan at its best, where underground activity is to thank for active volcanoes and bubbling natural hot springs along the Shimabara Peninsula as well as the crystal clear waters of the Goto Islands off the west coast. Less well known than Hiroshima’s Peace Memorial Park, Nagasaki commemorates its own past at the Nagasaki Peace Park, which sits alongside the charming Meganebashi stone bridge and a mix of religious buildings with beautiful architecture, such as the Zen Buddhist Sofukuji Temple, the Confucian Shrine, and the Oura Christian Church.
