The theme behind this environmental aquarium is "Where the Japan Current Meets the Kurile Current."
Since its opening, it has been a center for the study of the rare coelacanth order of fish. The aquarium offers a glimpse of deep sea life through multimedia and rare specimens. Educational activities such as the Aquamarine Egg interactive facility and Snake Eye Beach provide a fun way to learn about the sea.
On July 20, 2015, it opened the Waku Waku Satoyama and Jomon no Sato, which reproduce the natural environment of the Jomon period.
