I was taken here while visiting Ise with family. I thought it would be a sweet place for the kids to see marine animals, but I was so wrong. These poor creatures live an inhuman existence. Their tanks were barely big enough to move it and I'm talking about animals such as sharks, dolphins, giant otters, seals, penguins and walruses.... More

First, let me preface by saying I am not a hard core animal rights activist. I didn't go here with the intent to freak out on animal cruelty based on them not living in the wild and not being free, etc. I have visited many zoos and aquariums such as Sea World and assumed this place would be fun based...

The aquarium is nothing special, but you have the chance to touch walruses, play ball with dolphins, shake hands with the otter and watch some shows. It is a nice place to get close to the animals.

Futami Sea Paradise looks some old but it's very fun!!! You can touch walruses, sea lions, seals, and others. Especially, walruses are very friendly and you can touch them easily. All staff is very friendly too. We realized how staff trust on their animals. My wife and I really enjoyed and wanna visit there again soon! We love Futami Sea... More

If you can make your visit off the peak time, you will get a chance to cuddle, interact, and play with beautiful creatures like dolpins, walruses, and sea lions. The staff is great and they all really love their job and the creatures they are taking care of. Keep in mind that this is not an aquarium! Highly recommended for... More
