It’s been a while since I’ve posted something for Exploring Japan. Here’s a big one with plenty of pictures. Last year, I went to the Enoshima Aquarium in Fujisawa city. It’s one of the major aquariums in the Kanto area, and it has a great view of Sagami Bay, Enoshima and Mt Fuji. This aquarium was renovated in recent years, and is also called Shin-Enoshima Aquarium. There’s a very large tank with sharks and rays, you can walk under some rays that are swimming overhead, and you can watch the dolphin and whale show. Yes, there is a False Killer Whale there. I also experienced the hands-on touch tank, where I felt the skin of small sharks. It felt like sandpaper, just like many people have said.
I’m going to keep captions to a minimum this time, so just enjoy the pictures.
How do you find Shin-Enoshima Aquarium? Check out this Google map:
