Admission fee of Port of Nagoya Public Aquarium = 2000 yen ($20.20 €14.93)

I visited Port of Nagoya Public Aquarium with my family in August. Its admission fee was 2000 yen ($20.20 €14.93) for adults, half price for under 15. 

There were so many vistors in the aquarium. It was hard to see fish carefully.

Remarkable activities of the aquarium are

  • Research and breeding of sea turtles
  • Research and breeding of penguins
  • Research and breeding beluga whales (white dolphin)
  • Breeding and physiological study of killer whale

The official site of the aquarium is http://www.nagoyaaqua.jp/aqua/othe/engl/index.html.

Here are some photos of things in the aquarium.
