Uozu Aquarium (魚津水族館)

3.5

Aquarium

Uozu Aquarium is located in the Sanga district of Uozu City. The first aquarium on this site was opened in 1913, making it the first aquarium to be established on the Sea of Japan side of the country. The current Uozu Aquarium, which opened in 1981, is the third aquarium to occupy the site. Focused on the themes of “From the streams of the Northern Alps to the deep waters of the Sea of Japan” and “Taking a scientific look at Toyama Bay,” the Museum also uses Japan’s first transparent acrylic glass tunnel to showcase Toyama’s aquatic life forms. There is also a “Rice Field Biodiversity” zone, which features amphibians and reptiles such as Tonosama Frogs and Japanese Rat Snakes.

Reviewed:2020/03/26 無料でペンギン
本来エースとなるべきペンギンが水族館の外で無料で観られました。これで経営上問題無いのかはわかりませんが、ミラージュランドのついで、近くを通ったついでに観て見ると良いでしょう。

日本は海に囲まれているだけに水族館は全国に約70園館もあり、人口あたりの水族館数が世界一と言われている水族館大国です。

          Toyama is one of the three prefectures that house the Japanese Alps, with its southern and eastern borders comprising one long stretch of mountains, out of which the Tateyama Kurobe Alpine Route is forged. While traditional crafts fill the northern coastal cities of Toyama and Takaoka, thatched roof houses offer unrivalled views against a backdrop of fantastic scenery at Gokayama in the mountainous area in the south of the prefecture.
