Himeji City Aquarium, Himeji Reviews

  • Pretty nice as aquariums go, but surprisingly small and gift shop-less. (So no omiyage). That also means that there are fewer things to see. You could easily see the place in less than an hour.

  • Small aquarium so never get tired but just 500 yen and you can clean foot and hands by doctor fish with free

  • good

  • Creature is millet...

  • 過去にあった姫路大博覧会の海底探検館の施設に出来た水族館の関係で手柄山の山頂にある山の上の水族館です。震災の後にリニューアルされて新館増設など、過去の面影のある本館と合わせて施設としての魅力は増えてますが、魅力の一つであった格安の入場料もジワジワと値上がりしています。それでも他の水族館と比べたら割安です。近くの加古川で捕獲されたアリゲーターガーも捕獲後水槽で展示されており、飼育員と出会えれば話を聞くことも出来ます。施設上・一番大型なのがウミガメなので、イルカショーがあるとかはないですが、サメやエイの体を触れるタッチプールなどもあり姫路市立動物園と共に、憩いの場所にはなってます。
