Nagoya offers visitors a number of attractions, including the biggest outdoor tank in the world - the Port of Nagoya Aquarium. Opened to the public in 1992, the Port of Nagoya Aquarium functions as both a centre for exhibiting and educating visitors about the behaviour of marine animals, as well as a research facility for the protection of endangered species. The main centre comprises two buildings - the North Building and the South Building. The North Building features the outdoor tank where the public is educated on how marine mammals have adapted to changes in the oceans over the years. Visitors are also treated to numerous shows and antics performed by trained dolphins at the tank area. The South Building showcases the diverse sea life of the 350 animal species that are found between Japan and South Pole by taking visitors on an exciting ship ride.
