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!

I & my family had enjoyed our tour largely due to the outstanding service of your two drivers. We are particularly impressed by Mr Shindo who went out of his way to take us to as many as 7 sightseeing sites in Nagasaki within the limited period of 5 hours. Although the drive was over mountaineous terrain, Mr Shindo 's superb driving skill and the excellent condition of his taxi afford us such ...
