Review of Wakayama Prefectural Museum of Natural History

TripAdvisor Traveler Rating
Reviewed:2018/10/28 期待以上
小さいながらも水族館くらいの価値はあります。亀やカエルなど身近な生き物からはじまって、大きい水槽を泳ぐ魚たちに癒されます。
タッチングプールがあったのも良かったです。
ゆっくり見て回れるし、とくにお子様連れにはオススメです。

その名の通り、和歌山県の県立博物館なのですが、水族館といっても差し支えないほど充実しています。
広いサンゴ水槽に、大きいロウニンアジやエイがおよぐ大水槽、水族館定番のクラゲやチンアナゴまで、ペンギンやイルカこそいないものの、かなり見ごたえがあります。

雨の日でしたので、館内は、家族連れで賑わっていました。これと言って、すごいというものは、特にありませんでした。

Wakayama Main Areas

around-area-map

Wakayama prefecture unites pilgrims, food lovers, and culture buffs in a tranquil corner of Japan at the base of the Kii Peninsula. The setting for many a Kumano Kodo pilgrimage trail, Wakayama invites those in search of spirituality from one side of the prefecture to the other, from the 100-plus Buddhist temples of the sacred Mount Koya in the west to the inspiring temples of the Kumano Sanzan set among breathtaking nature in the east. Once the grueling hike is complete, make a beeline for Wakayama city to savor some of the country's most delicious ramen noodles.
