Nightscape Koganeiro 2022″ is an event in which visitors can enjoy the aquarium at night, when the atmosphere is different from that of the daytime. The normal opening hours of 18:00 will be extended to 21:00, and a romantic atmosphere will be created with night-only lighting and dolphin shows.
Lighting effects as if you were in the ocean
In the museum, the aquarium lighting is changed to blue color after 6:00 p.m.. Visitors are enveloped in a fantastic atmosphere as if they are under the sea.

The aquarium’s unique nighttime programs are also noteworthy. At dusk, the Dolphin Sunset Program is held, where visitors can enjoy a dolphin show with the sunset. The dolphins’ beautiful performance can be seen against the backdrop of the setting sun over the Seto Inland Sea.
Also, during the period, programs featuring marine creatures in the museum will be expanded. Visitors can watch penguins, sea lions, seals, and other sea creatures eating food and the breeding staff taking care of the creatures’ health.
And a beer garden overlooking the Seto Inland Sea.
