Sendai Umino-Mori Aquarium

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.
