イルカと泳ごうのプログラムに参加して、イルカの賢さに触れることができました。海水温も12℃くらいと言われましたが、ウェットスーツのおかげで寒さを感じることなく楽しめました。少しのレクチャーを受けて、背びれを持ってのエリア周回、イルカが仰向けで胸びれを持ってのエリア周回を楽しむことができます。そして、その後の餌やりやふれあいなどあっという間の時間でした。そして最後はインストラクターのようにジャンプの...

訪問した時、ちょうどショータイムが終わったばかりで次のショータイムまで2時間ほどあるとのことでしたが、入場前にそれで良いか確認があったので親切だと感じました。了承の上入るとたくさんのイルカたちがとにかく距離が近い!そしてとても慣れていて、目の前でいろいろな動きをしてくれて、ショータイム以外でも十分楽しむことができました。アザラシの賢さにも驚きでしたよ。

          A trip to Oita is tantamount to a long soak in the Beppu baths. The mountainous, coastal prefecture of Oita is renowned for having more onsen than any other prefecture in Japan, most of which lie in the city of Beppu on the west coast of Kyushu, recognizable by its pungent sulphuric aroma and the clouds of steam that puff up across the hillside. Away from the Beppu hot springs await mountains, waterfalls, and temples, so don't hesitate to explore Oita a little further.
