Pet Arctic Animals at the Nagasaki Penguin Aquarium

by Mieke

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!

I contacted Yasu only a couple of days before I visited Fukuoka, and in rapid correspondence he agreed not only to suggest solo activities for my very brief visit but also agreed to meet me the next day in Nagasaki. This involved a considerable round-trip train journey on his part. He met me on time; he had the day all planned out; and we saw and did much more - and at a much better price - than ...

Two weeks ago Yoshiharu guided myself and three friends around Nagasaki. He was very organized and prepared.
