Description

Experience Okinawa's flora, fauna, and natural landscapes in an innovative new way at DMM Kariyushi Aquarium! Billed as an "entertainment aquarium," this attraction in Itoman's IIAS Okinawa Toyosaki shopping mall is Okinawa's second-largest aquarium to date. Here, innovative exhibits bring together cutting-edge digital art installations, recreations of Okinawa's rich nature, and a combination of living and virtual animals for an engaging, multi-sensory experience. DMM Kariyushi Aquarium is divided into two main zones: Emerald Forest and Ocean Beauty, both of which are home to a variety of fishes and other animals. Entering from the second floor, you'll first pass through the Haisai Gate. Welcoming you into this attraction is a large multi-sided screen. Watch and listen to an immersive story about Okinawa's waters and nature; accompanying the video are dynamic visual and sound effects that change depending on the time of day. Stepping out of the Haisai Gate, a giant banyan tree towers above you — you have now entered the Emerald Forest, inspired by Okinawa's subtropical, primeval Yanbaru Forest. Lush and evergreen, this zone is home to aquatic tanks teeming with colorful freshwater fishes and reptiles. The Churaminamo is a large tank with a transparent glass floor that will have you feel as if you're walking on water, while the Umikaji Dome replicates a shoreline, complete with lapping waves. Here, you can observe small creatures while listening to the sound of the waves. Pet stingrays and tiny sharks at the Touch Pool, and observe sloths, armadillos, and other land animals up close at the Yui Yui Zoo. After your walk around the Emerald Forest, head down to the Ocean Beauty zone on first floor to feel as if you're beneath Okinawa's shimmering-blue waters. Virtual Ashibinae is a digital aquarium with virtual fish and other marine creatures projected on five acrylic panels, while Jellyfish Yonnae is a row of giant cylindrical tanks showcasing the fantastic and mysterious world of jellyfish. At the Bannai Tank, look out for adorable saltwater fish such as clownfish and Chinese eels. And, walking through the Churasan Reef underwater tunnel, you'll be surrounded by colorful coral reefs and tropical fish, as if you really are exploring Okinawa's underwater world. This isn't your ordinary aquarium — book now!
