Japan Salamander Center (日本サンショウウオセンター)
Japan Salamander Center is a breeding and exhibition facility, one of the few of its kind in Japan, located 10 minutes by bus from Akameguchi Station on the Kintetsu Osaka Line at the entrance to the 48 Falls of Akame. Called a living fossil, the giant salamander is a National Special Natural Monument that has survived in almost unchanged form for more than 30 million years. Visitors can carefully observe the unique forms and biology of giant salamanders and clouded salamanders born in the Akame area. They may also see sword-tail newts and other newts or axolotl walking fish.
