Description:

20 minutes away from Tsuruoka Station and 8 minutes away from Yunohama Onsen, you will find Kamo Aquarium, the aquarium often referred to as the "number one jellyfish-specialized aquarium in the world

Kamo Aquarium owes its reputation to the number of jellyfish species displayed to its public: more than 60 species have been reproduced with success by the aquarium's team.

A prowess that was made possible thanks to the scientific team's efforts and the director Mr. Okuizumi Kazuya, who is continually researching new ways to improve the jellyfish's environment.

Besides the jellyfish, the aquarium also displays an extensive collection of local sea creatures including seals and sea lions.
