The migratory fish such as Red Sea Bream and Jack Mackerel found in the Sea of Japan are kept in the mega fish tank, which can hold 800 tons of water. There is an undersea tunnel that goes through the mega tank, which provides a panoramic under water view and allows you to observe the school of Pacific Sardines very closely. There is also another fish tank which simulates the environment of the Shinanogawa River, the longest river in Japan, where you can see some local fish such as Chinese Gudgeon and Japanese minnow. You can also see Amur sturgeons and tarpon. The aquarium dedicates itself to the preservation of species, and it has one of the largest groups of Humboldt penguins in Japan, an endangered species.
