If you are in Monbetsu, it's worth taking a quick look at this facility. There are some seals in about four little pools. You can watch them swimming around and if you time your visit well you can see them being fed.

The seals were really amazing and so clever. They were so cute when they moved by bumping their bellies. And, they could show their teeth when asked to do so by their trainer. They also allowed us to stroke them up close.
