It looks a bit rundown (especially from the oitside) and some of the aquariums feel a little bit small but the dolphin show is fairly entertaining.

We had a wonderful weekend. 1st time there and watching the dolphins show makes my kids so happy. They got mesmerized with lots of fish and everything in there. It was great experience going at the aquarium.

I was really impressed with this aquarium. Not too busy and we spent around 3 hours taking it all in. A lot of fish native to Japan. The dolphin show was short but often and the seal show was soon after. We did miss the dolphin feeding which was around 2pm. The interactive part at the end was marvelous for children especially. You can touch and pick up clams, star fish etc. Follow me @andrea_expatosaurus on Insta for more hidden gems in Aomori prefecture!

Only been to an aquarium once before and this one is definitely better. Gave it a 4/5 as not a big fan of aquariums as a principle. Many interesting aquatic creatures to see. Great for kids (and adults) with plenty of cool things to do. Bit pricey, but dolphin shows are included in the ticket and there is no time frame in which you have to leave.

Had a really great time here. The aquarium has a great range of aquatic animals of all kinds, from all places ranging from the seas around Japan to streams the mountainous regions. The dolphin show was very entertaining with them performing many tricks, including "playing volleyball" with the audience. However, some exhibits look too small for the animals in them, particularly the seals and the sea turtles. One of the seals also seemed to be sick when we visited, and we saw it vomit. Hope it's just indigestion though. Overall, great place to bring kids to and a good day trip out of Aomori!
