Visit Iruka-jima (Dolphin Island) in Mie Prefecture for an amazing time admiring the sea and these wonderful marine creatures. For the fare of riding the ferry from Toba Bay, you’ll also be able to enjoy the aquarium at Dolphin Island and interact with these cute animals. There’s plenty to do on Dolphin Island and getting there is half the fun.
Ride one of three passenger ferries and take in the beautiful vista of Toba Bay. Once you arrive at the island, you can take a lift up to the observatory and have a sweeping view of the whole bay and its many islands. At the dolphin show, watch the trainers feed and interact with dolphins and sea lions—and after the show, for an additional fee, meet the stars of the show and even touch a dolphin.
