The Toba Aquarium is superbly arranged and contains some rare examples of marine animals such as, for example, dugong. A special attraction for young people is a play with streaked seals that provokes also sympathy of the older people

Despite not being a modern Acquarium, I still find it interesting and charming. Good way to start or round off a day ... lots of interesting species of marine life and even saw some big cats!

Relatively small but nicely packed in ~1000 species. We spent 1.5hrs and saw many rare species for the first time. It's definitely worth a visit for anyone coming to Toba.

I've been surprise that I saw capivara in the aquarium. I'm from Brazil and there has a lot of it. Nice accessibility and easy to find the places that you want. One of the biggest aquarium in Japan.
