The website says the Otters aren't on show, is this just temporary? We aren't going for a few months but Otters are our favourite and like 90% of the reason we would go here.
When I was there in Dec, the Otters were a huge bunch and playing joyfully.
We were in July 2017 and as I recall there were at least 3 otters. The suggestion to email them before you go sounds good.
Hi, I would send them an email and ask for more details. The otter area wasn't large, they are cute but a small part of the overall aquarium. The whale sharks are the big attraction and the massive crabs.
We went in August and they only had the one otter there.
I should update they replied saying they have no plans to have the otters back on display anytime soon :/ sad times. maybe we will skip. unless they bring them back. We do wanna see the whale sharks also though so maybe we will go if we have time.
If your contact your local Japan Tourism Board (JTB), they should be able to help.
Unfortunately I dont know the answer. However if you contact your local Japan Tourism Board (JTB) Office they can help.
Thankyou for your replies! I will email them and see if I can get any info!
Oh we definitely would like to see the whale sharks
But Ive never seen the sea otters in real life and they are probably my favourite animal besides the Red Panda haha.
