Nakagawa Aquatic Park栃木県なかがわ水遊園

Tochigi Prefecture’s Otawara City is home to the prefecture’s only aquarium. In tanks replicating the ecology of the Nakagawa River, you can see creatures that inhabit a range of environments from the source to the river’s lower reaches. The huge tube-type tunnel aquarium featuring fish from the Amazon River like the enormous arapaima and piranha is a must see. There are many interactive areas as well, including touching tanks where visitors can encounter crayfish and starfish directly.

Review of Nakagawa Aquatic Park

TripAdvisor Traveler Rating
Reviewed:2018/07/13 Nice aquarium
Nice aquarium but we have been spoiled having been to much larger aquariums in the world, but a great place for a family, not too expensive and some nice attractions for the kids!
Reviewed:2019/10/06 1日楽しめるところです。
期待しないで訪れると、いい意味でそのギャップに驚かされます。淡水専門の水族館ですが、内容も充実していてコスパも高いです。お弁当を持っていくと1日遊べるところです。
Reviewed:2019/09/11 地味だけど興味深い
淡水魚の水族館なので、カラフルな魚などはあまりいません。地味だなーと思いましたが、展示の仕方や説明がわかりやすく、楽しめました。ふれあいコーナーもなかなか。小学生の団体さんたちは楽しそうにしていました。釣り堀やつかみどりのコーナーにも行きたかったのですが、暑すぎて無理でした。涼しくなったらまた行ってみたいです。料金が安いのに展示は充実しています。

          Most visits to Tochigi revolve around Nikko, a small city home to the spectacular, lavishly decorated Toshogu Shrine and Nikko National Park with its mountains, lakes, waterfalls, onsen, and wild monkeys. Neighboring Oku-Nikko is an extension of the fantastic scenery famous for its autumn leaves, while Tochigi's capital, Utsunomiya, is the only place in the world where you can find oya stone beautifully exhibited in temples and the Oya History Museum.
