E after J 3歳の子供と訪れました。 海に面した絶好のロケーションで、建物はとても広く、展示物も非常に見やすいです。特に随所に階段式のベンチがあったりして、ゆっくり見ることもできます。 イルカショーも室内のため、雨の心配もなく、アシカショーも工夫が施されていて楽しいです。また子供連れにはうれしい、アスレチック(小学生未満)があり、トイレもすべて障害者用トイレにおむつを捨てるボックスや、ビニール袋も完備。ここまで至りりつくせりは、水族館で初です。文句なくNo.1の水族館でした。 I've never been to such a wonderful aquarium like this before! Especially, I recommend to such a family which has small children. This aquarium faces to the ocean and there is the wonderful national park near this aquarium. You...More

Went with a Japanese friend and his sons. We had a great time! The show was funny and included in the admission. The outdoor exhibits were different than other aquariums I have been too. Lots of fun. The shark tank is huge! Pretty cool!

I've been to a fair number of aquariums, and this is definitely one of the best. Like most aquariums in Japan, there is little in the way of English signage, although you can usually get the names of the animals in any display. Huge sharks,...More

Oarai Aquarium is one of the best aquariums in Japan. Its totally themed as ocean and it is a good infotainment visit. It will take around half a day to cover the whole aquarium and it is clean well designed and unforgattable place.

Is this aquarium sensitive to the needs of the animals? Do they have large enclosures and helping no animals that would otherwise be in danger?
