Aquarium of Crab and Shrimp (すさみ町立エビとカニの水族館)

4.0

Aquarium

"This aquarium is about eight minutes on foot from Esumi Station. Re-purposing the former Esumi Junior High School, it's home to about 150 varieties of crustaceans, including shrimp and crabs. Their ""Seafloor Exploration Sub"" is a tank with small shrimp and crabs modeled on a submarine. They also have unusual varieties like the Tasmanian Giant Crab, one of the largest in the world. The Susami Ocean Tank has a reproduction of the Guinness World Record holding mail box on the ocean floor, and their Marine Environment Learning Center conducts seasonal experiments with the creatures there."

I particularly like...

This mini aquarium is right next to a rest stop in Susami. A perfect location for a break after a long drive from the north. There also is a seal and some turtles.

旅行中に道の駅を次々に辿っていて、道の駅すさみで休憩と買い物をして、別棟にエビとカニの水族館があることを知った。エビとカニ、されど150種も展示があるとは想像していなかっただけに、うれしい不意打ちを食らった。世界中から採取した色とりどりのイセエビ、世界中から来ているのに何でイセエビ?プールのタラバガニは手で触ることもできる、熱帯魚も一緒に泳いでいるし、揺らぐ水草や砂の上にいる極々小さなエビは赤と白...

          Wakayama prefecture unites pilgrims, food lovers, and culture buffs in a tranquil corner of Japan at the base of the Kii Peninsula. The setting for many a Kumano Kodo pilgrimage trail, Wakayama invites those in search of spirituality from one side of the prefecture to the other, from the 100-plus Buddhist temples of the sacred Mount Koya in the west to the inspiring temples of the Kumano Sanzan set among breathtaking nature in the east. Once the grueling hike is complete, make a beeline for Wakayama city to savor some of the country’s most delicious ramen noodles.
