This freshwater aquarium is neither the biggest nor the fanciest of Japan, but precisely because of that, it’s a great place to visit. Kids especially enjoy the petting zoo area, where they can feed fish and touch turtles. This, and the reasonable ticket prices, make the aquarium a popular destination for families on the weekends. The surrounding park can be explored on foot or on a rented bicycle.
