    Small but nice aquarium

    There is no English, so if you are wishing to learn about the fish aside from their scientific names, you won’t get much out of the visit. However, for children it is fantastic. the size of the aquarium itself is rather small, but it makes it easy for small children to get around. The fish are all river fish, but there is an interesting selection from very small fish to much bigger ones. there is also an area where you can touch turtles and crawfish. The crawfish seem sorta dead and as an adult, its creepy and sad, but the turtles are surprisingly friendly and my two year old loved it. We went on a holiday, so there were tons of children and the touching area would fill up and be surrounded until the group moved on and the next came in. The outside grounds of the aquarium was my favorite part. Koi ponds, a stream and plenty of benches to sit and enjoy as my son ran around admiring the fish everyone was feeding. We also partook feeding the fish, purchasing a capsule of pellets for a 100 en from the dispensers. There was also matsuri games and a foot bath with doctor fish. 5 mins for 300 yen, my son had his shoes and socks off before I even had my money out to pay.
