Aquarium

This aquarium is located in Kuji City, Iwate Prefecture. It is Japan's first underground aquarium, and uses a tunnel at the National Kuji Storage Base. Besides being able to come into contact with sea creatures, there are also various exhibits and a corner to learn about the oil reserves. You can also see the nanbu moguri (traditional diving technique) and hokugen no ama (northernmost female free divers) underwater demonstrations on weekends and national holidays.

Review of Kuji Underground Science Museum Moguranpia

TripAdvisor Traveler Rating
Reviewed:2019/10/08 地下水族館
三陸鉄道リアス線の久慈駅下車、三陸石油備蓄基地のトンネルを使った日本初の地下水族館です。地下水族館すごいです。光るクラゲの水槽は綺麗でしたよ。
Reviewed:2019/09/08 ちいさいとこだけど
さかなくんのこーなーもあったり震災の頃の説明もあってよかったです。
思ったより見応えはあります。普通の水族館のイルカ芸やアシカ芸はありませんが半日は楽しめました。
Reviewed:2019/05/08 さかなクンと久慈市民の思いが詰まった水族館
魚たちがとても可愛らしく、そして習性などが分かり易く展示されています。
さかなクンの久慈と魚への愛を感じることのできる水族館だと思います。
普段から知っている魚も新たな一面などもみれるので飽きずに楽しむことができます。

          A northern Tohoku prefecture promising peace and quiet, Iwate is sparsely populated, replacing people with snow-capped mountains, history-rich sites, and fields of crops that are to thank for the region's delicious local cuisine. Meander along the three-city Golden Route, where you'll visit the grand Buddhist temples of Hiraizumi and the Tono folk villages before tasting the three famed noodle dishes of Morioka.
