Port Of Nagoya Public Aquarium - Review
Built in 1992, this public aquarium is one of Japan's better ones. It has two major exhibits. The north building is dedicated to cetaceans - killer and Beluga whales, dolphins, porpoises and such. It has one of the largest outdoor tanks in the world, where audiences are treated to fantastic dolphin shows. You can also see how these dolphins are fed and trained. The second exhibit in the south building is more unusual: It documents and narrates the journeys of the Antarctic research and icebreaker ship Fuji, which was active for 18 years from 1965. The ship itself is on exhibit here, and has been converted into a museum for the Antarctic world. It's utterly fascinating.

Port Of Nagoya Public Aquarium, Nagoya-shi Reviews
Good aquarium with lots of sea life. Very impressive, large-scale central tank with dolphins lit in a brilliant blue, though of course any visit to a facility of this type does raise questions about the keeping of such creatures in tanks of any kind. The presence of an orca in the facility also may be objectionable to some, though during my visit it was not exhibited in a tank and performed in a limited way in an area next to the big stadium where dolphin shows are held. Most of the displays are actually rather small, though, but well presented, especially the tropical exhibitions and the deep-sea life exhibit, which uses holograms to show dwellers of the dark depths. There is some limited English here, but it’s not really necessary to enjoy your visit. The admission price is a little pricey, but you can easily spend four or five hours here.
Great dolphins and killer whale show. But not many other species to see. Good and friendly for kids. Better compare to Osaka aquarium.
I love aquariums. I felt that their was a connection between the fish and their caregivers. I really enjoyed it.
This is the biggest I have been to (yet!) The dolphin show is superb, try to sit in the middle, for a treat! At a walking distance from the station. The yearly pass is worth it if you stay near to Nagoya!
Great place to visit by yourself, with a friend, a date, your family and especially bring your children. It's a little expensive about $20. (2000¥) for each person but it's worth it. Go early in the day to see everything and don't miss the dolphin show !
