Shimonoseki is famous for puffer fish. But I can't remember seeing so many species of puffer fish in an aquarium. In general, an enjoyable visit.

The aquarium itself is not so big as the Osaka one but it has a collection of more than 100 types of puffer fish ("Fuku: in Japanese). There is also a small area for sea show but you it's only one round a day (if i'm not mistaken, please check the schedule again) and it suit for young children.

We took a ferry from Moji-ko to the Kaikyokan side. Visited with two kids (7&9). Good place to visit as a family. Make sure you have enough cash (about $100 for 4 people) to pay for admission! The ticket machine accepted cash only as of April 2015, and there was no ATM nearby.... Other than that, nice decent attraction right by Kanmon Straits. Dolphin show was fun.

The aquarium is very clean however it is sad that so many animals are in such closed off areas. There are many fish, mammals and penguins. If you are an animal lover it is not a nice site however it is in a great location and the staff are very kind.
