I am SO far behind on keeping you guys in the loop for what I’ve been up to here in Japan. So bad, in fact, that today’s post is about a trip I took in October. I say it every time, but I really really want to write more regularly this year ^.^
The aquarium was pretty cool, for being in the middle of the city. It wasn’t my favorite aquarium by any means – the top of my list is still the Kaiyukan in Osakako (near where I live).
It was pretty small, but there were lots of fun aquatic creatures and the architecture of the whole place was pretty cool. They’re known for having a dolphin show, which unfortunately I didn’t make it to so I can’t tell you about that…..
Here are a couple snapshots (all from my iPhone 4S) that I took while I was there:
some super super chipper looking toads
coolest looking jellyfish ever
my morning face
tree frog – who knew this is what they looked like underneath!
turtle melon bread – a special design specifically for the kyoto aquarium. super adorable but not the best I’ve ever had 😉
side view of the main tank
sea urchin eye… I didn’t even know they had eyes!!
