Shimoda Floating Aquarium

下田海中水族館

The Shimoda Floating Aquarium, south of Izukyu Shimoda Station, is located right on the coast in Shimoda in a dramatic setting.



The aquarium features dolphin and penguin shows as well as feeding sessions with seals.

The various tanks also hold a vast variety of aquatic life found off the Izu coast, including jelly fish, sharks and small fish that eat the dead skin from your fingers.

There is a souvenir shop and a rather over-priced restaurant at the main entrance.

The bus from bus stop 7 just outside the railway station runs to the aquarium at 10 and 40 minutes past the hour. You can get a reduction on the entrance fee by buying your ticket at the information center inside the station.
