Hakkei-jima Sea Paradise is the best aquarium in Japan.
The dolphin show with projection mapping is so wonderful!
Shiro-Iruka is white dolphins, very popular character in here, ‘Shiro’ means white and ‘Iruka’ means dolphins.

And there are other famous place here, “Aqua Tube” is tunnel escalator in the aquarium.
The spot is so beautiful that often taken as a shooting place film and dramas.
After late afternoon, “Dolphin Fantasy” that is a part of the aquarium (the aquarium is consist of 4 part) begins bar time.
There are some dolphins and fishes in Dolphin Fantasy with romantic illumination, the light changes various colors.
