Umikirara aquarium


In Sasebo, the aquarium called Umikirara is one of the main attractions.

It is not a big aquarium.

But you can see many living things like dolphins, big turtles, rays, small sharks and horseshoe crabs, which are said to be living fossils. 

But the most interesting thing there is the jelly fishes.

In the world, 1350 kinds of jelly fishes exist. 

In Japan, there are 275 kinds.

And in Kujyukushima, there are 100 kinds of jelly fishes, including species first discovered there. 

In the aquarium we can see many kinds of them.

I like watching jelly fishes.
