Tsuruoka City Kamo Aquarium, Tsuruoka

4.3
Stocked by the daily catches made by intrepid staff, Tsuruoka City Kamo Aquarium boasts an enormously comprehensive collection of jellyfish. The aquarium's choice to diversify into displaying these otherworldly creatures saved it from hard times and has more than doubled its annual footfall--making it one of the most popular aquariums in the country. On the underground levels, observe over 35 species of the spectral jellyfish as they float illuminated in dark tanks. It's not all about the jellyfish though: you'll also see sharks, octopuses, and other marine creatures, as well as entertaining sea lions in their live show. Don't forget to pick up a jellyfish-related souvenir in the gift shop.

  • Very nice place to enjoying holiday in yamagata, japan. We will learn about many species of jellyfish and fish. Don't forget to try eat jellyfish ice cream, that's so delicious.
