More Than an Aquarium

Aquamarine Fukushima

Aquamarine Fukushima is an immersive way to observe and discover rich coastal environments and marine creatures living in recreations of their natural habitats, from the Fukushima Coastal Region to the Tropical Asian Waterfront. You can also see marine life in the frigid Okhotsk Sea at this destination.

The large, triangular glass walkway is considered their main attraction, which intersects the Kuroshio and Oyashio aquariums – two major ocean currents – where large schools of bonito, rays, and sardine swim overhead. Just outside the building is Janome Beach, one of the world’s largest manmade beaches where you can interact with sea creatures like starfish and sea cucumbers.

Aquamarine Fukushima also offers activities like fishing, live-feeding, and a backyard tour – conducted by volunteers – which allows you to see the operational perspectives in an area that covers two-thirds of the facility. During this free 30-minute tour, you can see the machines that manage the aquarium, rooms used to prepare food, the equipment used to bring in organisms, as well as the staff working behind the scenes.

 

Some activities may be cancelled due to COVID-19 restrictions.
