Seahorse Houseタツノオトシゴハウス

Experience Hall / Accommodation Experience (Training) Facility

Japan’s only breeding farm specializing in seahorses open to the public. The facility breeds seahorses with the aim of preserving the ocean environment and here visitors can see seahorses swimming idly in large tanks. Seahorses are also seen as symbols of luck with love and marriage, marital harmony, and easy childbirth, and the facility sells relevant charms. The facility was also shown in a car commercial in 2016.

          Over 100 active volcanoes across Kagoshima make it one of the Japan's most exciting prefectures. The prefectural capital, Kagoshima city, looks out to one of the prefecture’s most spectacular volcanoes, Sakurajima, an island of its own that can be visited and seen close up or admired from afar, with the promise of breathtaking sunsets complete with frequent puffs of smoke and ash. Down the Satsuma Peninsula, the most southerly part of mainland Japan, waterfalls, sand onsen, and fascinating history await, while Kagoshima's abundance of satsuma imo (sweet potato) provide a wholesome snack as well as one of Japan's favourite drinksーshochu.
