Miyajima Aquarium

Miyajima Aquarium features local sea life found near Miyajima and the surrounding Seto Inland Sea. This includes a unique oyster reproduction raft, which are a local specialty of Hiroshima Prefecture. There are also impressive creatures from other oceans across the globe. Some of the popular critters from abroad are penguins, sea lions, and otters. Live shows are featured here as well, even offering interactive opportunities with the sea lions for lucky audience members.

The aquarium highlights various exhibits and pools for its visitors to experience. To name, there is a tide pool of starfish and sea cucumbers where children are encouraged to touch and pick up. Other popular attractions include feeding times of the different animals that reside there, where divers enter the tank to feed fish, manta rays, turtles, and even sharks. The finless “Whales of the Seto Inland Sea” are among the popular animals too, as they come up to the glass and look at you. This newly renovated and improved aquarium is an enjoyable way for families to spend time while visiting Miyajima.
