First note that the polar part is tiny. This is part of a massive theme park for children. Second note the price. Each adult is ¥240. That's ¥240 each adult. Children are ¥210. We were there at 1030 and it was completely empty. I can see why.

Make sure you plan your trip for the various shows, they are the best part about it! Highly trained and professional, really entertaining. The other exhibits were ok, a few of them rather sad of the small chambers, but the worst part is all the young mothers with iPhones pushing their way around to take a selfie with their kid... More

Love it! This is the best water world we've ever been, even better than some of those in a more "developed" countries. I was skeptical, since the ticket was rather expensive, but the varieties of water animals available in there and the shows they made really blown us away, and every cents of money were worth it. We enjoyed so... More
