Okinawa Churaumi Aquarium

Reviewed By Gracie_Chen - Singapore, Singapore

Impressive aquarium and glad we put that in our itinerary . We went early to avoid the crowd , tourist buses started to come by around 10 am We also encountered a group of students on excursion so the place got crowded quickly . If you are not in a hurry (we are not) , just slowly stroll through the crowd and appreciate the different species of sea life on display. Fav window is of course the Whale Sharks & Giant Mantra Rays .. mesmerizing to see the giants swimming around We greatly enjoyed the place , time well spent P/S : If you intend to visit the Tropical Dream Center , keep the aquarium ticket . You get half price for the Tropical Dream Center entrance ticket

Tropical Dream Center

Reviewed By BYamamoto - Kapaa, United States

Many many people trek to Motobu to visit Churaumi aquarium. I would like to invite them and stress the importance for them to spend a few hours in the Tropical Dream center. The facility changes throughout the year in the flowering exhibits specializing in Orchids and different exhibitions from Native species to many different tropical plants. Great exhibits of topiary that represent the zodiac symbols . You can have a light lunch in the facility and walk up the tower to reach a overview of the garden and park. The facility also host educational workshops for children and adults. Lots of photo spots.

Okichan Theater

Reviewed By soyamericanoenhk - Hong Kong, China

The Okichan Theater timetable is well documented on the Aquarium pamphlet and website. There are different time tables for different seasons during the course of the year. From the parking lots of the Park / Aquarium, it's downhill and accessible by a series of escalators or elevators and you can go directly down towards the beach to the Theater. No aquarium ticket required. If you like dolphins, you can easily hang out in this theater area for a few hours and not get bored. There was a food / dessert truck to the left of the stage and vending machines and restrooms to the right of the stage. This aquatic theater has 3 attractions with multiple performances scheduled throughout various times of the day. 1) You can get in line to buy buckets of fish heads to feed the dolphins. 2) There's a performance show like you would find at Sea World. 3) There is a glass wall / underwater area to learn more about dolphins One of the highlights of a 6 day trip

Emerald Beach

Reviewed By piggywigoink

Emerald beach walks very clean. There are permanent ‘parasol’ type of seating which provides shade from the sun and some seating area for one to rest when out of water. There are around 4 big floats tied to the seabed which visitors can sit on and stay afloat the water. The water isn’t too deep for a quite big stretch and it’s got lifeguards so it felt really safe. Just that when one walks to the water, along the sandy beach there are quite a lot of seashells etc on the sand so it’s better if one wears aqua shoes. It’s very near Bise Fukugi tree road. The toilets are nearby but have to walk abit. There are shower cubicles inside the female and male toilets. Also taps available outside the toilets for washing your sandy feet. There’s a shop right outside the toilet selling ice cream too.
