debut! Adventure in the deep sea world projected by "underwater drone"! “Deep Sea Shark Touch” and the popular “Zoku Zoku Touch” are also available.
Sunshine Aquarium (Tokyo, Ikebukuro, Director: Katsushi Maruyama) is watching the creatures that live in the deep sea entrance about 200m deep
A popular winter-limited event “Zokuzoku Deep Sea Life 2020-To the Unknown World” will be held from January 10th (Friday) to March 8th (Sunday), 2020. This time, various deep sea contents will appear with the theme of “adventure” and “exploration”.
Deep-sea creatures can only be collected in the winter when the temperature of the seawater is low and the impact on the deep-sea creatures is minimal because the inhabitant water temperature is low. In addition, there are many creatures that can only be seen for a short period of time because there are many creatures that are difficult to keep and long-term breeding due to the effects of water pressure. Sunshine Aquarium challenges the collection of deep-sea creatures every winter and carefully transports and cares after the collection. Exhibit next to the Sea
From this time, Sunshine Aquarium introduces the first “Underwater Drone” to broadcast the deep sea footage taken and to explain the deep sea while watching the actual “Underwater Drone”. In addition to the popular event “Zokuzoku Touch” that allows you to touch deep sea creatures while being thrilled, the “Deep Sea Shark Touch” will be held for the first time, allowing you to touch frozen specimens of several types of deep sea sharks such as sharks and sharks.
In addition, in cooperation with JAMSTEC, “water pressure experiments” using water pressure reproduction equipment, photo points where you can enjoy shooting while looking for deep sea creatures (illustrations) lurking in the hall, and a talk event that invites guests, “Deep Sea Talk” Etc. are held. Shop Aqua Pocket will also sell the original “Shinkai Curry” made of large beetle powder, as well as deep-sea creature goods centering on love turtles.
