#809 The aquarium “Umigatari” in Nigata ~ You can see a compete view of the Japan Sea
The aquarium “Umigatari”
I went to the aquarium “Umigatari” in Joetsu city, Nigata. This Japan sea facing aquarium was renovated just last year. It was a modern and cozy aquarium in the city.
The water tanks looked like they were joined to the ocean!
The “Sea of Japan” and the “dolphin stadium” were two of the most popular attractions. Both places were designed in such a clever way that in the water tanks looked like they were joined to the ocean. You can see a complete view of the Sea of Japan and the beautiful sky above it.

You can also see two beluga whales and many Magellanic penguins. They were so cute and very popular.

A cute guide
This time, my 6 years old nephew-in-law showed me around in the aquarium. He has an annual passport.
I bought a penguin umbrella, which he wanted, for him. That was a token of my gratitude for his nice and cute guide.
