The world freshwater aquarium Aqua Toto Gifu
This aquarium is located in Gifu prefecture. It was built as a local communicating area to enjoy, learn and think about nature conservation and the nature of rivers. With the theme ‘From the mouth of Kisosansen River and Nagara River to the world’s freshwater fish’, the aquarium perfectly displays the habits of not only fish but also birds, reptiles, amphibians, and other water surrounding species. It displays one of the largest numbers of freshwater lives in the world, and it offers a peaceful space for a wide age group from children to adults to learn. The Kasen Kankyou Rakuen where the Aqua Toto aquarium is located is said to be “the worlds largest and one and only place to learn about riverside nature”.
