Breathtaking show with dolphins and a pilot whale. The animals were full of energy and well cared for. The bond between them and their trainers was very evident. Amazing show.

The Okichan Theatre is just outside of Churaumi Aquarium. For those who have been to Singapore’s SEA Aquarium or the one in Osaka, I would suggest skipping the aquarium and to head straight to the Okichan Show. Best that you check on the show time...More
