Aqua World Ibaraki Prefectural Oarai Aquarium Reviews
A great aquarium Jul 30, 2014
The Kurile ocean current(a cold current) meets with the Japan ocean current(a warm current) off the coast in Oarai. Compared to other area of sea in the world, the offing of Oarai is rich in the species of fish. 580 species and 68,000 creatures of the sea are exhibited in this aquarium. At first I was enchanted by an enormous shoal of sardines at a big water tank. The display of more than 50 species of sharks is this aquarium's outstanding characteristic. The ocean sunfish tank is also a must to see. A lot of families enjoyed dolphins and sea lions performance.
