Aquarium is really good! Not huge but surprisingly filled with large fish and so many clown fish. We are the only people here on a weekday in December. Plenty of engaging stuff for kids and space to run around outside. Only negative is 500Yen parking fee seems really steep considering there’s loads of unused space and we’re paying to go inside as well.

A local aquarium. It's a small aquarium, but many attractive contents here for kids. All the kids there looked excited.
