Sendai Umino-Mori Aquarium仙台うみの杜水族館


Located in Takasago Chuo Park one kilometer from Sendai Port, Sendai Umino-Mori Aquarium has 100 aquarium exhibits. The aquarium’s centerpiece is a giant aquarium recreating the sea of Sanriku, and the aquarium raises some 25 thousand creatures spanning 50 species. The Umino-Mori Stadium on the second floor is one of the largest such facilities in Tohoku and seats around 1,000 people. One of the unique features about this stadium is its lack of an acrylic divider between the audience and the performers. During a show, visitors can view vibrant dolphin and sea lion performances up close.

Review of Sendai Uminomori Aquarium

TripAdvisor Traveler Rating
Reviewed:2019/12/17 Quite interactive shows
We walked from JR Rikuzen Tagasago Station to the aquarium (could have took a taxi instead, cost about JPY1000).

The aquarium has 2 floor, indoor tanks on the first, and outdoor tanks and show on...
Reviewed:2019/11/22 Disturbing
Do not visit this place and support how they keep many of these animals in captivity in poor conditions. It is disturbing and cruel. For example, Sarah the dolphin!
Reviewed:2018/12/28 Lots to see and do
We loved our visit to this aquarium. So much to see and do. Loved the dolphin and sea lion shows too. Transport to and from was very easy with the shuttle bus from the station.

          Miyagi Areas


          Lying along the northeastern coast of Japan, Miyagi prefecture is home to lashings of natural parks, oysters, and hot springs. While the bustling city of Sendai offers some simple city entertainment, it's the Matsushima islands that deserve the most attention, having boosted the prefecture's reputation as one of Japan's most scenic views.
