Nakagawa Aquatic Park
The only aquarium in Tochigi prefecture.
The attraction of the river， which the sea does not have， is definitely the sunlight shining deep through the water. A large amount of sunlight is taken in at the aquatic park， recreating the scenic riverbed.
As natural light shines through the water， the fish actively swim in the aquarium， which is an attractive part of this park which cannot be experienced at a marine aquarium.
There are many interactive areas as well， including touching tanks where visitors can encounter crayfish and starfish directly."

The Nasu area, in the northeastern part of the prefecture, is famous for the imperial villa located there, and is one of Japan’s premier resort areas with its expansive highlands.
