Toba Aquarium鳥羽水族館


Located in Toba City, this is Japan’s largest aquarium. Appropriate of its catch phrase “Japan’s largest number of species bred” the aquarium is home to approximately 1,200 species of animals. The aquarium has 12 zones that come close to natural environments, and one characteristic is that there is no prescribed viewing route. The aquarium has Japan’s only dugong, a sea creature which served as a model for the mermaid legends, and along with the manatees is a popular animal to see. Moreover, the museum not only features aquatic animals but also displays animals that live close to water such as capybara. The humorous show featuring sea lions and walruses is a must-see.

We spent the day in Toba Japan. There isn’t very much to do here. Asked w local what should we do and they said visit the aquarium. Against my better judgement we did. And it was awfully sad...

This Aquarium was part of another tour I had in Toba. I initially thought it was kind of a fill in stop. Wow was I wrong.

The Toba Aquarium not only had all sorts of sea life you would hope to...

          Mie Main Areas


          Spread across the eastern side of the Kii Peninsula, Mie prefecture boasts hundreds of kilometers of pretty coastline comprising the oyster-rich Toba city and Shima National Park all the way down to Kumano, a city that marks the beginning of part of the Kumano Kodo pilgrimage, which runs into neighboring Wakayama prefecture. However, Mie is best known for the Ise Jingu Shinto shrine inland, one of the oldest and largest shrines in the country.
