I had a blast here even though it's not the largest or most exotic aquarium I have visited. It's not expensive and it's a great venue for kids to enjoy a few hours. The dolphin show was excellent and the staff a pleasure to talk to.

This is the starting point of the kujukushima(99 islands). Spare half day including time to buy a tickets for the one hour boat trip to 99 islands. There are two boats. The pirate boat is a new one. The white boat is an old one. They both serve the same route of one-hour boat trip.

Pearl Sea Resort is a beautiful place to drop by and go for a ride on a Pirate Ship or any other form to see the 99 Islands that surround the Sasebo bay. There is beautiful scenario and it's a nice change from the normal. Great ice cream too and Sasebo Burger.

This is a very nice outing. The coast line in this area of Japan has hundreds of small islands. The Pearl Queen takes you on an hour long trip. There was a guide over the loud speaker that spoke both Japanese and English. The water is very clear and the scenery is wonderful. I stood on the back of the... More

Good Aquarium with lots of exhibits about the surrounding water. Impressive jellyfish display done with a mystical quality theme. Dolphin show is a great time. They are very talented. It has many exhibits and you can get your own pearl out of an oyster - Guaranteed.

We went on a weekday and it was pretty quiet, Most of the visitors aseemed to have come by tour bus or by car; we took the city bus and it was easy to find the place. It was a cold and windy day. We could see oyster and pearl farms as we enjoyed the cruise around the islands. The... More
