  • Located in the city of the sea self-museum, the content is very rich, for the thunder has a very complete introduction. The appearance of a natural is the shape of a ship. Free admission, but the meal is common, the material is OK, but the food is a bit of a slug. There are many items that can be collected in the Department of Souvenirs.

  • What a place to put in the dane and the towering submarine in the city! And i was surprised to double. The inside of the submarine seemed to be unexpectedly comfortable, and it was narrow and painful. It was such a strange space. You can see quite a lot of things inside, so if you sail here... It was fun to go around imagining.
