Relaxing with the Sardines at the Port of Nagoya Public Aquarium

I have been to Osaka’s Kaiyukan Aquarium and Okinawa’s Churaumi thus far and Nagoya’s Aquarium is definitely my favourite! It not only features a lot of adorable marine mammals but the shows are really something too!

The view that greets you when you step in is just impressive. Sacchi (orca) swirling around in one corner and dolphins actively swimming around with the young in another aquarium nearby and there are beluga whales at the other corner.

Do, DO check out the sardine performance! They put on this soothing, dreamy music and drop bags of food here and there, and use the light reflecting off the sardine’s bodies to create this out-of-the-world experience.

And the best thing about the aquarium? You can actually stroll freely around because it’s not as crowded as Kaiyukan or Churaumi! I felt so frustrated at the other aquariums because there was constantly a thick wall of people between me and the aquariums and I don’t feel relaxed at all having my shoulders brushed against others’ all the time.

To make the most out of your aquarium visit, do remember to check out the schedule for the shows and performances. They only have the schedule in Japanese so hopefully your browser has a good translating tool.

Have a great day!
