Ise Meotoiwa Interactive Aquarium "Ise Sea Paradise" 伊勢夫婦岩ふれあい水族館 (伊勢シーパラダイス)

The distance is surprisingly zero centimeter! It's an aquarium really permitting touching!!

An aquarium that allows you to look at the animals closely, touch them, and even feel the temperature.
The aquarium has the record of winning "5th place in the popular aquariums of Japan section" in the past by the rating of the world's largest travel site "Tripadvisor".

Sea lions welcome you at the entrance of the aquariume.
There are plenty of attractions such as the walruses which are experts at dynamic throwing kisses, performances by cute sea lions, the seals' touch and the yet unexperienced handshake with aonyx capensis.
Even adults could become like kids again and enjoy the time at the aquarium from the bottom of the heart!
