Sure these animals are amazing and an encounter with them is always an experience. However, one has to feel awful about the conditions they are in and the way they are made to perform non stop. No animal should be living in a tiny cage...More

Free exhibit, show runs approx 25mins. Quite a crowd gathers for this. In the afternoon only half of the seating is shaded. Some start turning up1/2 hour before hand. Highlight for most visiting. Show is presented in Japanese only, though it is easy to follow...More

Again, this was free; considering it was free, the management has put a great deal of effort into it; much to see and the show was excellent. Unlike other Dolphin shows in other Countries though, no volunteers would be asked to "help out" Limited seats,...More

The Okichan Theater timetable is well documented on the Aquarium pamphlet and website. There are different time tables for different seasons during the course of the year. From the parking lots of the Park / Aquarium, it's downhill and accessible by a series of escalators...More

The Okichan Theatre is just outside of Churaumi Aquarium. For those who have been to Singapore’s SEA Aquarium or the one in Osaka, I would suggest skipping the aquarium and to head straight to the Okichan Show. Best that you check on the show time...More

A free dolphin and Orca show at the aquarium park. The show was entertaining even though it was in Japanese. Try to get there early to secure good seats in the middle.
