Located in the city of Iwaki in the Fukushima Prefecture and standing right next to the Pacific Ocean, Aquamarine Fukushima offers a host of attractions to people interested in marine life. Many of its different sections are devoted to demonstrating the underwater ecosystems of the Fukushima Prefecture as well as many other parts of the world.
One section, for example, recreates the natural aquatic environment of the regions around Fukushima, from the lakes and rivers of its mountainous interior to the estuaries and shores lying close to and along the Pacific Coast. Another section named "Waters of Tropical Asia" recreates within a greenhouse the waterside habitats of tropical Asia.
Other attractions include a "Marine Mammals" section where you can watch large aquatic mammals such as seals and walruses from close quarters and the "Okhotsk Sea" tank that accommodates a wide assortment of fascinating underwater creatures found in the Okhotsk Sea of Hokkaido.Places nearby:
