The Otaru Aquarium is a large scale aquarium representative of Hokkaido with 350,000 visitors annually.
The west side of Hokkaido, about an hour by car from Sapporo, surrounded by nature facing the Sea of Japan, it's an incredible location.
Inside the large and small aquariums that number over 70, there are 5000 cold and warm water fish of 250 varieties on display.
The greatest feature of operating during the winter season may be the penguins taking a walk in the snow. There are many sights to see, including the fun dynamic dolphin show, the earless seal meal time, and the pelican walk in the building.
You have to see the internationally uncommon display of porpoises.
You may even spot a wild Steller sea lion or earless seal in the sea facing the aquarium.
The penguins take a lively walk on a course made from snow.
