For people enjoy to see animals trapped in cages or tanks is just fine experience, I particular find it sad, however when I came to Nagoya I was taken there for tourist attraction and it is an ok place, clean.

This is a great day visit and very easy to get to. You take the Meiji (purple) Subway Line to the Port of Nagoya which is the very last stop and follow the signs in the subway to the correct exit. The aquarium is just a brief walk from the subway station. If you show your all day subway pass,... More

This place is enormous and has everything you can ask for. Countless of fish to see including heaps of events run daily from morning till night. It's one of two aquariums in Japan which has two Killer Whales as well. Restaurants on every floor, and children's den in case they get bored (which is unlikely), also smoking sections for the...

We came here by train. Despite the rain it was crowded as it was a weekend. Please plan ahead so that you are able to see most of the shows. The shows were excellent especially the dolphins show. The highly intelligent beluga whales were entertaining. The killer whales show was also good. The penguin show was superb. The aquarium viewings... More
