Kyoto Aquarium

Kyoto Aquarium recreates the connection of life from the source of Kyoto’s rivers to the sea and the ecosystems where numerous life forms co-exist.
Furthermore, in addition to offering exhibits, it regularly holds interactive events where visitors can have fun while learning about aquatic life, as well as presentations by specialist aquarium keepers.
It aspires to be a comprehensive “edutainment*-oriented aquarium” where children living in Kyoto can learn about and interact with water resources and aquatic life.
*Edutainment is a combination of “education” and “entertainment.”
