Sendai Umino-Mori Aquarium is the biggest aquarium in the Tohoku Region. Opened in 2015, this “marine forest” has a particular focus on the sealife of the Sanriku Coast of northeast Japan — as shown in the gigantic Sparkle of Life tank. The aquarium’s other claim to fame is the huge open-air Umino-Mori Stadium, which has up to seven enthralling dolphin or sea lion shows every single day. The aquarium’s first floor has the motif of Seas of Japan, with 12 themed zones from The Submarine Forest of Maboya to The Hirose River, the Source of Sea. Here you’ll see Japanese sea squirts, eelgrass beds, hagfish, and much more. The Sparkle of Life tank is a 13-meter wide and 6.5-meter tall, sun-drenched slice of ocean that seems cut directly out of the Sanriku Coast waters. On the second floor, you have the Umino-Mori Stadium, plus nine distinct areas on the theme The Seas of the World. See fish from the Great Barrier Reef at “Oceania,” Baikal seals and sturgeons at “Europe,” plus Commerson’s dolphins and neon tetras at “North America and South America.” Also upstairs is The Plaza of Marine Animals, where you can come face-to-face with South American sea lions and penguins. They’re waiting to meet you!
