The Kinosaki Marine World is an aquarium united with nature where the Japanese sea view unfolds before your eyes.Not only can you enjoy the sea beings in each area, you can also enjoy many exciting shows.Also you can hold sea urchins, starfish etc in your palm and you can take a walk with the penguins. It's an amazing experience.Our specialty is our Dolphin and Seal show which changes every year. It's a must see ! Many animals appear as well as dolphins and sealions at the show stadium where the Japan Sea spreads through in the background.Moreover, through the 5cm thick glass and Tube area you can observe various other sea beings.Unique experiences are awaiting you. See you soon!

Great view with it's coastal location, coupled with fun shows makes this an excellent aquarium to visit. Unexpectedly pleasantly surprised by this place, the way they present the shows are really engaging as you get really close to the animals. Loved the dolphins and seals!...More

It was a big complex, next to the sea. I personally do not enjoy zoos or aquariums but my husband does. It was very clean and the animals were in really good condition. They have a lot of attractions through out the day. You can...More

Above all: Please note that they do not accept credit cards there and the closest ATM is nowhere near. Not a problem if you have a car, but if you come by bus like us, it will simply make you drive back to town if...More

The Marine world is nice, though the natural scenery is even better. We went during the week in the late afternoon and it was quiet.
