Aquarium

An aquarium overlooking the Sea of Japan in Togashiohama, Oga City, Akita Prefecture which was remodeled and reopened in 2004. Visited by large numbers of tourists, the aquarium was also used for filming in the movie “Tsuribaka Nisshi.” The impressive Giant Sea of Oga Aquarium exhibit recreates the ocean off Oga and houses some 2,000 living creatures spanning 40 species. Visitors can also come in contact with real sea creatures at the aquarium’s Touch Pool and watch the aquarium’s popular polar bears as they romp and play. The aquarium also has a restaurant where you can eat while gazing out over the sea.

          Famed for its sake and samurai, Akita prefecture offers quintessential Japanese culture in a non-touristy setting. Alongside the celebrated rice paddies and historical sites of the region lies dramatic natural scenery in the form of the rugged coastline of the Oga Peninsula and the Dakigaeri Gorge, best visited in autumn, when the leaves begin to change color.
