Takeshima is famous for the Takeshima land. Ancient citizens believed that there is a goddess in the land. As people were afraid of the god, they had preserved the land for a long time. The beautiful ocean view and an aqua museum are magnets to tourists. The aquarium is divided into 17 areas in which you can see rare saltwater, freshwater, and tropical fish from around the world. There are about 450 species of fish. Every day there are four shows involving California sea lions doing various entertainment tricks with balls and jumping. The Erika, the yacht that sailed around the world, is on display outside the aquarium.

Where to finde the Aquarium:
I don't have any guides of this aquarium. Does any body know if they made any guides? And where I can get those?
In the years 1981 and 2006 they had theire anniversarrys. Have they made any books on this occassion?
