With such proximity to the sea, it comes as no surprise that Kagoshima has its own aquarium. Located near Sakurajima Ferry Terminal and the Dolphin Port complex in Kagoshima City this seven-floor aquarium has been welcoming locals and visitors alike since opening in 1997.
With a focus on local marine life, Kagoshima City Aquarium is known for its legendary Kuroshio Tank, a massive and comprehensive display of sea creatures and sea life from the Kuroshio Current which passes by Kyushu and includes specimens such as rays and whale sharks.
The aquarium’s distinctive architectural design and warm ambiance create a quirky and welcoming scene and it’s not a surprise, then, that it’s one of the city’s main tourist attractions. The space’s Dolphin Pool holds three dolphin shows each day and has become a huge hit over the years with tricks and fun aimed at families and couples who come to enjoy the spectacle.
