At Miyajima Public Aquarium, see 13,000 creatures of 350 distinct species from the Seto-inland Sea. Imported animals like otters, penguins, and sea lions perform entertaining shows, and feeding times of various residents also draw a crowd--particularly the manta rays and turtles. In the first floor, kids can interact with starfish, sea cucumbers, and other gentle creatures in the tidal pool. Highlights include an area dedicated to Kabuto-gani, a horseshoe crab that has not changed for a million years. Information boards are provided in English, and the aquarium has all the necessary facilities, including a cafeteria, restrooms, and picnic area.

Miyajima Public Aquarium Reviews
宮島水族館, 呢個水族館怩其他地方既少人很多 而由船碼頭黎要步行25-30分鐘左右 真係唔近, 不過天氣涼涼地既時候黎就可以 另外最貼心既係, 當你以為行錯路時, 竟然會見到有條魚形狀既路牌提你正確既方向 果一下笑左XD 呢個水族館比較遠, 所以岩有時間同水族愛好者。 more »Aquatic, what about a aquarium in other parts of the country is a lot of people and by the boat Li to walk 25-30 minutes or so really close, not even the heavens and days of time li can also be the most heartful, when you as a way, actually will be able to have a way to both the road sign to mention you both the direction of the left X-D is more than a fish , so the rock has time to be good with the aquarium.
初めて行ったのは小学生の時。それから約20年後に行きましたがリニューアルされてしばらく経つようですが良くなってました。地元の水族館という感じで大きくはないですが、安いしペンギンタッチなども無料なので良かったです。大体所要時間は1時間半ぐらいでした。 more »The first time I went there was when I was in elementary school. I went there about 20 years later, but it seems to have been renewed for a while, but it was getting better. It is not big in the feeling of a local aquarium, but it is cheap and penguin touch etc. are good because it is free. It took about an hour and a half.
Very surprising little aquarium. It has some really well put together exhibits and some fantastic interactive exhibits; you can pet penguins and otters. They also have a pool of doctor fish that you can stick your hands and feet in and they eat all of your dead skin off. This was my personal highlight and I thoroughly recommend it. Make sure you catch a seal show, as they are well worth it. The seals do tricks and the trainers crack jokes, the quality was surprising for such a small aquarium.
Great aquarium. Compared to the Osaka one, this might feel a bit small. But I tend to say that the variety is still on par with the larger ones. Entry was not expensive, only 1400 yen. Every 30 Minutes an event is planned, that you can attend to. They all don't take that long, maybe 10~15 minutes. With that you can still spend multiple hours at this aquarium! They also have some Doctor Fish available for everyone to use. I know that in Europe the use of fish in spa's is frowned upon. So this is the place if you want to try it out. (although I recommend reading up on it first as people are prone to getting infections as a result of the fish eating away)
