Aquarium

Facing Sagami Bay, this aquarium takes full advantage of its amazing location overlooking Mt. Fuji and Enoshima.
The exhibits and shows are based on Sagami Bay, the Pacific Ocean, and the creatures that live in them.
The aquarium caretakers help introduce guests to the fish, their unique appeals, and their ecology.
You can even meet cute ocean-dwelling creatures, like dolphins, sea turtles, penguins, and seals.
At the “Dolphin Show Stadium,” you can enjoy watching amazing performances put on by dolphins and sea lions against a backdrop of Enoshima and Mt. Fuji’s beautiful scenery.
You can also buy drinks and snacks at the café, where you’ll find cute aquarium-themed breads and local dishes.
The shop also sells original aquarium sweets and goods.
