Japanese people are fond of everything offered by the sea: they enjoy eating any kind of fishes as well as they appreciate only watching them in their diversity. The archipelago thus maintains a great number of aquariums, in big cities and in more secluded regions, each with their characteristics and a favorite species highlighted as a mascot.
Aquariums spare no effort to please children and families, with gigantic water tanks, underwater glass tunnel, dolphin shows, etc. Older visitors can also learn more on the aquatic fauna and flora.
There is a kind of magic in visiting an aquarium, especially when the immersed in darkness space offers a pleasant break unaffected by the passing of time.
