Kinosaki Marine World is an aquarium united with nature, where the Japanese sea unfolds before your eyes.
Located high up on the coastal cliffs in Hiyoriyama, about 5km north of Kinosaki Onsen. Marine World can be accessed by bus from Kinosaki Onsen Station, which is the closest train station.
Marine World takes pride in its smaller facilities, as this allows visitors to interact more closely with the sea life and for the staff to teach the visitors in a more intimate surrounding about their sea life friends.
There are several attractions and shows within Marine World. The oldest attraction is the Aji fishing zone. Here you can catch you own aji (horse mackerel) fish and have them fried up fresh right before you. This was the original attraction and how Marine World first started.
There are also several dolphin shows daily, backstage tours where you can meet the dolphins and walrus in person, a tide pool where you can touch and feel sea stars, and more.
Another popular attraction is the “Dive” where (for an extra fee) you will be taken out onto a platform that will sink you down into a tank so that you can have a fish-eye view without getting wet.
