Amami Ocean Exhibition Hall (奄美海洋展示館)



"This aquarium and museum has a theme of ""the coexistence of the ocean and people."" Visitors can learn about the deep connection between the lifestyle of the people of the Amami Islands and the ocean from a wide range of exhibits. A large aquarium modeled after the underwater terrain of the ocean around the Amami Islands exhibits sea turtles, sharks, tropical fish unique to the islands, and more. A number of small aquariums offer an up-close view of shrimp, crab, and other familiar sea creatures. Another exhibit hall covers subjects such as the ecology of corals and coastal vegetation. Visitors can also try handcrafting an original item from coral, sand, seashells, and other materials."

Review of Amami Marine Exhibition Hall

Reviewed:2019/11/20 Nice distraction from the beautiful Ohama beach
I came here with my child who enjoyed looking at the huge aquarium just in the foyer of the Exhibition hall. She also enjoyed the feeding turtle session but be careful as they were said to bite...
Reviewed:2019/04/01 Enjoy feeding the sea turtles
Kids will surely enjoy the special experience of feeding the sea turtles. Aside from this, there are some exhibitions. But the place is quite small, so you will only need about 30 minutes here...

          Kagoshima Areas


          Over 100 active volcanoes across Kagoshima make it one of the Japan's most exciting prefectures. The prefectural capital, Kagoshima city, looks out to one of the prefecture's most spectacular volcanoes, Sakurajima, an island of its own that can be visited and seen close up or admired from afar, with the promise of breathtaking sunsets complete with frequent puffs of smoke and ash. Down the Satsuma Peninsula, the most southerly part of mainland Japan, waterfalls, sand onsen, and fascinating history await, while Kagoshima's abundance of satsuma imo (sweet potato) provide a wholesome snack as well as one of Japan's favourite drinks - shochu.
