Night tour in AQUAS

You can take a night tour in AQUAS, Shimane. It starts at 7.30 p.m. and you can see the fish at night. Tour guests are divided into four groups of about 10 people. Then, they visit some places in smaller groups. You’ll get to see the kitchens where food is prepared for the fish, and behind the scenes views of the Aquarium. In addition, you can see sleeping fishes and black water tanks which is turned off the lights. Sometimes, you can sleep in the aquarium. But this time, we only walked and watched around there. If you join this night tour, you may know sea animal’s life at night. It may become your special experiences!
