Kujukushima Aquarium Umi Kirara

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.
