Review of Manatee Center

TripAdvisor Traveler Rating
Reviewed:2019/12/02 Poor guys
The tanks are too small for them. They were separately located in individual tank. All of them were so lonely and swim at the same rhythm all the time.
Reviewed:2019/10/27 Feel sad for them
They were kept in tiny tanks for decades. I feel sad for them seeing their situation and feel they deserve better!
Reviewed:2019/10/03 Part of the Aquarium park.
In between the Turtle display and the Dolphin show pool. Kind of a tight area for them made me feel sorry they didnt have a bigger area to swim.

          Let go of your image of a busy, ordered Japan and replace it with crystal-clear waters, white sand beaches, and relaxing folk music: You've arrived in Okinawa. A world away from the high intensity of Tokyo, Okinawans appear to live a laid-back beach life on this paradisiacal tropical island that lies in the middle of the East China Sea almost 1,000 kilometers south of mainland Japan's most southern tip. Home to a spattering of islands, prepare yourself to discover underwater caves, star-shaped sand, and an island culture sometimes unrecognizable from mainland Japan.
