Io World Kagoshima City Aquarium Dolphin Waterway

Admission to the Dolphin Waterway is free, so feel free to stop by while out on a stroll.
The Dolphin Waterway is a specially maintained 275 meter waterway that flows into the Kagoshima aquarium.
Dolphins can swim out from their pool into the waterway freely.
The area is divided into a northern area, central area, and southern area by roads and footbridges.
