Aquarium

Shinjiko Nature Museum Gobius is an experiential-learning type aquarium that showcases the plants and animals that live in Lake Shinji, Nakaumi Lagoon and Shimane Prefecture’s rivers. In all, there are around 10,000 organisms belonging to approximately 200 different species. There is plenty for visitors to see, with diorama tanks that recreate the habitat of the rivers that flow into Lake Shinji and Nakaumi Lagoon, touch pools where visitors can interact with living creatures, etc. There are regular special events, including feeding sessions where museum staff members provide an educational commentary as they feed the exhibits. Shinjiko Nature Museum Gobius attracts large numbers of visitors (particularly families) throughout the year.

Very nice nature center. Well kept building and grounds. Does a nice job of teaching about area wildlife. Has interactive stations. Everyone in our family enjoyed it.

5月5日に行きました。ナマズやオオサンショウウオ、鯉などが好きなので大興奮!
小さい水族館で、タッチプールなど子どもが喜ぶコーナーもありましたが、大人にも見ごたえある内容の展示でした。これでたったの500円!
外に出ると芝生の広場、ちょっと歩くと宍道湖です。
ちなみに、広島から高速バスで出雲市駅へ、そこから一畑電車で湖遊館新駅で降りて徒歩数分です。GWだけど混雑もなくのんびりできました。おすすめ穴...

宍道湖の生き物の勉強をするのにちょうどいい水族館でした。入館料もお安めで気軽に立ち寄れます。タッチプールでドクターフィッシュも体験できました。

          What Shimane prefecture lacks in size and population, it makes up for in scenery and ancient mythology. Izumo-taisha, in the middle of the prefecture, is said to be Japan's oldest Shinto shrine, where stories that delve into the creation of the Japanese race have been passed down over centuries. The 180 Oki Islands, a 40-minute ferry ride north of Sakaiminato, offer an undiscovered paradise well off the beaten track.
