Suma Aqualife Park has been beloved by people in Kobe since its opening in 1957. Its main attractions include “the Dolphin Live Pavilion”, where bottlenose dolphins show their amazing tricks; “the Main Water Tank”, where sharks and stingrays swim graciously, and“the Amazon World” where pirarucu, the largest freshwater fish in the world, can be seen.


There are many shows that both children and adults can enjoy such as piranha and archerfish feeding at the “Fish in Live” theater, and otter feeding show as a staff tells you all about the adorable creature. Photos of adorable penguins can be taken at the“Earless Seal and Penguin Pavilion” with a petting field.
