Nagoya Port Aquarium

Taichi

Mar 3, 2017

Do you want to see dolphins up close? Head to Nagoya Port Aquarium, which is just a five-minute walk from Nagoya Port station on the Meijo line.

What’s the highlight of Nagoya Port Aquarium? The dolphins in the main pool! This pool is also the largest in Japan – it’s 60 meters long, 30 meters wide and 12 meters deep. Behind the pool is a huge high-vision screen that is wider than a volleyball court.

There are two ways to view the main pool: from the stadium on the ground or from the underwater observation windows. At certain times of the day, you can witness the dolphins being fed and trained.

My favorite moment was watching the Beluga eat. Besides dolphins, there are other deep sea creatures at Nagoya Port Aquarium. If you love the ocean, you won’t regret visiting this aquarium. The entrance fee is about 2,000 yen.

名古屋港水族館は名城線の名古屋港駅から徒歩五分のところにあります(入場料は大人2000円)。
名古屋港水族館の見所はなんといってもメインプールで飼育されているイルカたちです。
メインプールは長さ60m、幅30m、最大水深12mとなっており、日本最大です。
メインプールの背後にある巨大なハイビジョンスクリーンは横14m×縦7.9mの大きさで、バレーボールコートよりも広いから驚きです。

メインプールは地上のスタジアムからも見ることが出来ますが、水中観察窓からも見ることができます。
時間帯によっては餌やりや、トレーニングの様子など、間近でイルカたちの生活が見られるのは貴重な体験でした。

イルカ以外にも、私の好きなベルーガが餌を食べているところも見られましたし、
見た目が珍妙な深海の生物たちも数多く飼育されているので、水族館が好きならば訪れて損はしませんよ。
