歩崎公園の、中にある本当に小さな水族館です。人も少なく3歳の子供が踏み台に上りゆっくりお魚が見られたりして、生き物を身近に感じることができる良い場所でした。大きな水族館には迫力や、インパクトや、華やかさがありますが、そこには
ない味わいを感じました。霞ヶ浦に生息する魚を、丁寧に展示してあり大人も
ゆっくり楽しむことができました。お子様ずれにお勧めです。

夏に訪問。水族館は小さいけれど間近でたくさんの淡水魚達を眺められるので、小さい子供にはちょうどいいです。外では時間がくると噴水のように水がでてくる場所があるので水遊びができます。時間の案内看板もあるのでチェックしながら遊ばせるといいですよ。大きい子には物足りないけど、小さい子は大はしゃぎでした。周りにベンチや木陰が少ないので大人はあまり長くはいられないですね。

歩崎公園の片隅に建つ小さな水族館です。霞ヶ浦に生きる淡水魚たちと出会えるかな、と楽しみにして行ったのですが残念ながら休館日。平日休みの呪縛にハマってしまいました。建物は結構老朽化しているようですし経営が大変なのかな。

          Just a stone’s throw from Tokyo, Ibaraki is a coastal prefecture that has mastered juxtapositions, where old shrines meet new scientific discoveries and traditional gardens are frequented by the inventors of some of the newest technology. Head to Mito City's Kairakuen - one of Japan's Three Great Gardens - in spring to experience the cellestial blooming of fantastic cherry blossoms at the annual sakura festival.
