Kagoshima City Aquarium is an aquarium located in Kagoshima City, Japan. It opened in 1997 and is home to a variety of marine life, including fish, turtles, and sea mammals.
Some of the highlights of the aquarium include a large tank that features the Kuroshio Current, which is a warm ocean current that flows along the east coast of Japan. This tank houses a variety of marine life that is native to the Kuroshio Current, such as tuna, mackerel, and sharks.
