How to Get There

The closest train station is Miyajimaguchi Station.

From Hiroshima Station, take the JR Sanyo Line. It's about 25 minutes to Miyajimaguchi Station. You can also walk 20 minutes from Miyajima Pier, a popular nearby attraction.

A wide range of experiences to enjoy

As well as a wide variety of sea life on display, the aquarium also features the Setouchi Laboratory, educating visitors about the aquarium animals. Fun quizzes and games are a great way to help children retain the information they've picked up while strolling through the aquarium, while the "Rocky Shore of Friendship" touching pool is another attraction suitable for the young ones. For a very local take on aquatic life, make sure to visit the Miyajima Mudflats attraction.

Outdoor and other facilities

Light meals are available at the aquarium's informal in-house cafe, while the well-stocked museum shop sells souvenirs and snacks. Outside there is a very spacious picnic area. With a stamp, you have free entry to come and go as you please.
