Japan’s largest penguin museum, the place is not big, built on the beach, children like it very much.
It is a little bit far from the city and the area is not very big, so it is not comparable to the domestic aquarium Sea World. However, there are more kinds of penguins, and they are all very lively and cute, and the interaction with people is also quite good. Especially the little penguins, really super cute! Like animals, with children, if you still have plenty of time, may wish to come over to see. (If you want to see a big aquarium, you should go to Osaka)
The first thing you need to do is to go to an aquarium in every city in Japan and feel good about it.

Nagasaki Penguin Aquarium is the largest aquarium in Japan where penguins are kept and displayed. The aquarium was originally established with the intention of creating a place where you can get up close and personal with marine life, mainly penguins.
