The Kinosaki Marine World is an aquarium united with nature where the Japanese sea view unfolds before your eyes.Not only can you enjoy the sea beings in each area, you can also enjoy many exciting shows.Also you can hold sea urchins, starfish etc in your palm and you can take a walk with the penguins. It's an amazing experience.Our specialty is our Dolphin and Seal show which changes every year. It's a must see ! Many animals appear as well as dolphins and sealions at the show stadium where the Japan Sea spreads through in the background.Moreover, through the 5cm thick glass and Tube area you can observe various other sea beings.Unique experiences are awaiting you. See you soon!

First of all, the scenery by itself was amazing! The marine world was really interesting, in particular the live shows! I couldn't recommend it enough. We had a great time there!!!

We did not have high expectation of this facility as it is located in the countryside, on the coast of the Sea of Japan. We had not been to Osaka Kaiyukan yet but the onsen staff had told us that the Kaiyukan is way bigger...More

The Marine world is nice, though the natural scenery is even better. We went during the week in the late afternoon and it was quiet.
