Port of Nagoya Public Aquarium

Aquarium in Nagoya

One of Nagoya's most well-known attractions, this port-side aquarium boasts one of the largest outdoor tanks in the world, and the permanently moored Fuji Icebreaker ship, now an Antarctic Museum. The main draw here is the dolphin shows, which may concern some visitors. There is increasing evidence to suggest that it is harmful and stressful to keep cetaceans (Nagoya's aquarium has both dolphins and orcas) in captivity.
