“Zabojad Exploring Japan”

Sea Turtle Museum of Kumejima
Attraction details
Reviewed 6 January 2015

Wonderful place to visit and discover the Turtles, the Kumejima Sea Turtle Museum is a 30-45 minutes sight close to the Tatami Beach and offers several varieties of Turtles. Zabojad always delighted to explore such marvellous Settings. The Tatami Beach is Magic and offers wonderful views

Average, at best, I would say. Entrance fee is 300 YEN per person. We tried several times to visit it, but two days it was closed. On the third we could enter. Really disappointing from many points of view. It is really small. You do not need more than 10 minutes to see it (especially not reading Japanese). The museum hosts an impressive collection of shells and few small tanks with small turtles and another bigger tanks with some larger turtles, including a fake beach to allow the turtles to spawn. But simple and plain tanks, no ornaments, no space, the turtles were bored and sad.

The museum, which is in fact more an aquarium than a museum, has also a small section dedicated to the promotion of the sea life explaining with real examples (you can see them physically) the dangers of plastics and other stuff to turtles.

Few souvenirs to buy at the entrance are available, but not much.

And once again, no English anywhere.
