This time, we will introduce DMM Kariyushi Aquarium, which opened in May 2020 in Toyomijo City next to Naha.
It takes about 20 minutes by car from Naha Airport.It is a good location, which is a beach in front of you and a shopping mall next door.I heard the rumor that it was a new form of entertainment aquarium, and went there excitedly!

New Aquarium in Okinawa
The aquarium logo is a blue and orange coral reef with a wonderful color.The aquarium has a structure on the second floor and the entrance is on the second floor.
When you purchase a ticket at the ticket vending machine, a ticket with a QR code will come out.Hold the QR code over the gate of the aquarium and enter the museum.(It is the same feeling as the ticket gate of Okinawa monorail)
The staff were very friendly and helpful.
On the official website, web tickets are also sold and can be purchased without membership registration.Do not go out of your way to line up at the ticketing machine, you can enter with a smartphone, so there is no worry about eliminating tickets.
The second floor is an evergreen forest woven by a subtropical climate.
First of all, we will look at the image which expresses the story of “water” and “life” on the theme of Okinawa.Because there are screens in many fields, the sense of presence is wonderful.I feel like I’m swimming in the sea with fish, it makes me feel like I’m flying in the sky with birds, and the wind blows, so I’m surprised.
Since photography and video shooting were NG, I can only tell you in words, but I can experience the extraordinary space.If you are so excited and excited from the beginning, your expectations will rise after that.
The next thing to greet me is to say, “What?That?Forest?Banyan?Because the image of the aquarium was the image of the sea, the fish, I was surprised at the unexpected development.
Freshwater fish, reptiles and amphibians were there.There were red snakes and big lizards that I had never seen before.
Can’t find the exhibition panel?
The exhibition panel which I often see when going to the aquarium.The introduction of the fish is written, isn’t it?But the DMM Aquarium has no panels anywhere.How do you know the name and information of a fish?There may be some people who wonder, but this is the time!
Official app!Just after entering the museum, download it to your smartphone in the app description panel.When you open the app and hold the smartphone to the touch point in the building, the mechanism that the commentary of the “ikimono” in the vicinity comes out.
In the app, and floor map, download is essential because there is also a coupon that can be used in the café and shop in the building!
Okinawa’s sea and sky pattern are reproduced in the space
I am really impressed by the space here!It is very beautiful!What’s amazing is that you can see the scene like cutting the sea of Okinawa vertically.
Also reproduced, such as squall and lightning in CG.Along with that, the sea beed rough and the waves were swerfing.There is also a production where you can see the ship in the distance, and if the timing is good, you may be able to see dolphins.Because the sky pattern changes in time, I do not get tired no matter how many hours.It is also healed by the sound of the waves.
Panel that can peek at the sea from above!
A zone where you can take off your shoes and experience them.You can walk on top of the floor with transparent glass.It’s just like walking on the surface of the water.
You can see a large flock of sharks, rays and gurukuma from above.Because the depth is 6m, it is quite scary to look down, but it is a space that you can not usually experience, so please try riding by all means because it is a great deal of effort.
It is cool, and the sole of the foot is pleasant, too.Overlooking from above, this space is located on the second floor.
If you go down to the first floor, there is a big water tank this time, and you can see the fish up close.
I was able to take a photo with Ei at the right time.Please take a photo and give it a try.It is recommended to take a continuous shot at a good time.
The first floor is a clear sea where various living things can be found.
The world of jellyfish in a cylindrical water tank
The color of the space changes with time and it is very fantastic!Fluffy jellyfish are very soothing, aren’t they?It is recommended to enjoy the color and jellyfish for a while.
Large giant virtual aquarium
The video shown on five clear panels is a huge marine life.It is the size to be surprised whether such a living thing such as whale shark and a giant giant giant squid is in the sea.It looks like the real thing.
There is also a space where you can touch the living things of water
This is the recommended one for those with children.You can touch not only starfish and namako, but also rays and sharks.It’s fun not only to see, but also to touch and feel the skin of a living thing.
And there’s an otter next to this space!I was sleeping on this day, but the appearance of sleeping is still very cute.
an underwater tunnel that looks like it’s in the sea
A water tank of tropical fish with colorful coral reefs.Because it is covered with water overhead, you can feel like looking at the sea surface from the sea.There was a big utsubo, too, so please look for it by all means.
Stylish to detail in the building
The sign was so cute that I took a picture involuntarily.
The toilet mark is the mark of the person of the snorkel.How cute!I feel good sense.
The original souvenir is cute.
In the souvenir corner, there are a lot of products that collaborated fish and shisa, and it is healed to see.A sear is riding on top of a turtle or whale shark.
In addition, i wear penguin kariyushi wear (like an Aloha shirt in Okinawa) and wear a shisa cover, it is only a very lovely stuffed animal.Of course, there are key chains and T-shirts.
It is only here, and it is sure to be pleased with the souvenir to me or the souvenir to the family and the friend.
