Great Stuff to See and Do!
You will feel as if you are underwater yourself
The Mariho Aquarium is located in Hiroshima Marina Hop , a large shopping mall that overlooks the Seto Inland Sea. The popular water mass aquarium is the first of its kind in the world, and displays a three-dimensional reconstruction of seas and rivers. You can enjoy the dynamism and cooling sensation of exploring the water. While it is a compact space, it offers guests to experience the solace and tranquility of an out-of-the-ordinary underwater world.
Once the sun sets, a visual experience awaits nearby
Hiroshima Marina Hop also has attractions that you can enjoy all day long, such as the Marina Circus and event space. Among them, the Mariho Digital Art Road is one of the most popular night-time spots in Hiroshima. Here, you can enjoy the dazzling, 160-meter-long projection mapping that boasts of being the longest in Japan.
