Stocked by the daily catches made by intrepid staff, Tsuruoka City Kamo Aquarium boasts an enormously comprehensive collection of jellyfish. The aquarium's choice to diversify into displaying these otherworldly creatures saved it from hard times and has more than doubled its annual footfall--making it one of the most popular aquariums in the country. On the underground levels, observe over 35 species of the spectral jellyfish as they float illuminated in dark tanks. It's not all about the jellyfish though: you'll also see sharks, octopuses, and other marine creatures, as well as entertaining sea lions in their live show. Don't forget to pick up a jellyfish-related souvenir in the gift shop. See Tsuruoka City Kamo Aquarium and all Tsuruoka has to offer by arranging your trip with our Tsuruoka driving holiday planning app.

  • It's nice since there are many kinds of jellyfish compared to aquarium I've visited in Japan. They are so pretty. I enjoyed my visit a lot!
  • Finally have the chance to visit this place. They have the largest collection of Jellyfish in the world and they are being shown in great fashion. However, the other exhibitions (e.g., fish) are lacking. I still give it a 5 star because people do come here for the Jellyfishes.
