[Port of Nagoya Public Aquarium]
The highlight is the performance held in the main pool, the largest pool in Japan
The aquarium consists of two buildings; the north and south wings. The south wing is themed on a journey to the South Pole, introducing organisms and their habitats from the five seas where the Antarctic research ship Fuji sailed. Themed on a long journey of 3.5 billion years, the north wing is where you can see bottlenose dolphins and beluga whales, which are species of whale. Ancestors of whales are known to have changed their habitat from sea to land and then back to sea again. Delight in the dynamic dolphin shows at the main pool, which is the largest pool in Japan and can seat about 3,000 people.
