We chanced upon this place as it was next to the seal center. Entrance fee is 800 yen, including a 6 minute 4D show. This place would probably be more interesting during drift ice season when you can actually see the drift ice from the...More

View from the tower is nice but I believe it's better in winter. The basement view (underground sea view), it's not that fanastic. Honestly, the ticket price is not par to the view.

Great view of Okhotsk Sea! Beautiful Calm sea with sea gulls resting at the concrete docks. Nice cool weather in the first week of June. Will be great to come back and view drift ice in the Winter times!

The Okhotsk Tower for Undersea Observation was quite interesting but don't expect too much, it's worth going and give yourself sometime to slowly look through each exhibit. It would be fun to go on the Garinko II as it has a drilling bottom but we...More
