Fish and Fun
Kanako and I went out to the Nagoya Aquarium a week before I left for home. It was pouring rain and we didn’t have an umbrella! I had some extra clothes on me so I raced out into the rain to a store to buy an umbrella and some ponchos. It was like I had jumped into a lake or something! After getting back to car, I thankfully changed into some dry clothes and then…the rain stopped. Dammit to hell 😀 Oh well, that’s just how life goes sometimes!
So when we finally got to the Aquarium after lunch, we immediately went to score some seats for the always popular dolphin show. We got there almost an hour early and some seats had already been taken. A steady stream of people flowed into until it was packed with still about 15 minutes left to go.
It was a pretty amazing show, but hard to capture for the first time – it would have been a big help knowing where the animals were going to jump from and the overall flow of the show. Still I got a few decent pics!
After the show we moseied around the other exhibits.
At around 630 pm we went to see the Sardine Tornado 🙂 Yup, it was pretty cool, hundreds, if not thousands of sardines packed in, rushing around their tank.
Finally I snapped a few shots on the way back to the car.
That’s it! This is my LAST set from Japan, the next post will be from my first week back home in Seattle – stay tuned!
