Shimoda Aquarium

060326aquarium001_1Today my son and me went to Aquarium in Shimoda with a family of my friend of university.

I have ever been this aquarium many times, but it was first time for my son. He was very excited there.

This aquarium has many places to see, and this is one of them "Floating Aqua Tank".

It means this big aqua tank is floating on the sea as a ship. I think we can’t see it in the other aquarium in Japan. The other tanks are mostly in the buildings……

060326aquarium002_1In this area we can see the feeding show of diver 3 times a day.

In this show time a diver feeds the fishes in a tank.
Especially the feeding for this stingray was very interesting.
Please click this picture, you can see that this stingray is eating a sardine.
Yes, it seems like a face on this side. But,
Do you know where his eye are ?
He has a mouth on this side, but eyes on the opposite side.
When he was eating moving his mouth like this, all visitors were laughing.
It was really interesting and excited.

We can see several shows in this aquarium.
Dolphins, seatigers, seals, etc ……..

If you come to Shimoda, please visit this aquarium.
You may exactly have a good time and experience there.
