Experience the world's oceans and the vibrant life that inhabits them

Boasting the Japan's largest outdoor tank, the Port of Nagoya Public Aquarium is considered one of Japan's biggest and best aquariums.

Quick Facts

This urban aquarium consists of two buildings, the North Building and South Building

The North Building introduces cetaceans and their 3.5 billion year evolutionary journey

The South Building introduces creatures and their habitats you will find a journey from Japan to Antartica

How to Get There

Reach the aquarium by train.

The quickest route from Nagoya Station is to take the JR line to Kanayama. From there, transfer to the Meiko subway line bound for Nagoyako Station, a 5-minute walk to the aquarium.

Taking the Higashiyama or Sakuradori subway lines to Kanayama is slightly cheaper, but adds a further five minutes to the 27-minute journey.

The Port of Nagoya Public Aquarium is such an immense, extensive experience that you may find yourself tiring. Should that happen, take yourself to the Antarctic Marine Life exhibit, sit in the terraces, and relax as you watch the penguins swim, play, and dart around in the water.
