How to get there
15 minutes walk east of Suma Station on JR and Sanyo Electric Railway
1-3-5 Wakamiya-cho, Suma-ku
It should be considered a very large waterfront park in Osaka Bay, the weather is very good when it is sunny, but unfortunately that day to go to the big rainstorm.
The aquarium is very large, and Osaka Kaiyukan, but this is not inside a building, is a large courtyard inside 8 pavilions, like the dolphinarium, seal pavilion are open-air, the weather today is too hot, that big sun foot, watch the dolphin show or blue sky and white clouds, and then it rained heavily. This is really inconvenient to shuttle between different venues. The aquarium is next to the beach and there is an amusement park, so you can play all day if you have time. It’s a great place to bring your kids.
Admission is 1,300 yen for adults.
It’s easy to get to the park by getting off at Suma Seaside Park on JR and walking along the road signs for about five minutes.
You will see a huge water tank with sharks and rays swimming in it. There are more than 23,000 aquatic animals of 530 species kept in the Suma Seaside Aquarium.

This aquarium is a bit far from the city, but it fit our itinerary.
This day from Kobe back to Okayama, is the direction of the Sanyo line, to the station to store the luggage and then came to the aquarium.
Tickets are 1300 yen, quite a venue, and in summer there is a waterfront park where you can play with water, and since we go in winter, we will see the small animals.
There are several dolphin shows every day, so it was the right time to arrive. I met a group of kindergarten children, very happy ah. The show was awesome, joyful, the Japanese are very dedicated, very hard to get the atmosphere.
Aquarium exactly 60 years, a little older, the interior of the venue is a little old.
Small animals are still quite a lot, and there are not many tourists, so you can go shopping if you like.
Although the day is cold, but the weather is very good, very happy day.
Tickets 1300 yen, if you use kansai thru pass can be discounted, just pay 1030 yen ha! Be sure to see the dolphin show, it’s super cute! There are also sea otter feeding and seal contact activities! All in all, the price of admission is a great value!
It’s similar to other aquariums, with sea lion and dolphin shows, and beluga whales interacting with people, spitting water on my face, drunk!
Entering the central hall of the main entrance of the Kobe City Suma Seaside Aquarium, you are greeted by a huge tank in which sharks and rays swim.
The beach is in front of you, and this aquarium is quite fun.
The first close contact with the marine aquarium, watched the beluga whale show, did not think with the stupid beluga whale performance is quite flexible.
