Pet Arctic Animals at the Nagasaki Penguin Aquarium

by Mieke - TripleLights travel specialist

The main attraction of this aquarium is of course, the penguins.
However, apart from the eight different species of penguins, the facility keeps
Mekong giant catfish, Golden mandarin fish, Japanese horseshoe crab, Clownfish,
and other cute fish. In summer, the penguins can take a dive in the sea
from the adjacent beach. The coolest thing about this museum in my opinion is,
that the penguins are really up-close in open areas, so if you’re lucky and find a
penguin that takes a liking to you, you can pet real life penguins!

Mr. Yoshiharu made an itinerary that fits our schedule. He gave clear explanation during the tour. He also gave great suggestion on reserving seat for the train. Although we were almost late for his train, he was calm and still let us do some shopping. Before we said goodbye, he gave us a thoughtful souvenir. Thanks Mr. Yoshiharu.

Coming into Nagasaki straight from Hiroshima, already having some prior knowledge about the atomic bombs, Hitomi showed me around Nagasaki and it's history. Going through Glover Garden and some brief history about Mitsubishi (yeah it's not just a TV company), Oura Church, then the atomic bomb museum, and the Peace Park. Everything from the beginning to the end had a purpose. Each and every new...
