One of the newest and largest aquariums in Japan, the Port of Nagoya Aquarium divides its aquatic life into five different ecosystems representative of the Pacific Ocean. Also involved in scientific research, including the breeding of sea turtles and other aquatic life, the aquarium's natural exhibits are heavily supported with multimedia displays. The underwater tunnel and the penguin exhibit are especially popular. The aquarium is located at the port's Garden Pier along with many other attractions.

The Nagoya TV Tower, Oasis 21, Aichi Performing Arts Theater, Aichi Fine Arts Center & Museum are some of the major attractions that fall under Sakae.
Perched on the eastern slopes of the Yoro Mountains, Yoro Park is an offbeat, undulating terrain of architectural anomalies that challenge your perception. Established in 1995 as an experience park, the site is mottled with a unique collection of landscapes, pavilions and architectural works that are designed to disorient and thus reorient your consciousness. This vibrant, evocative park is the brainchild of artist Shusaku Arakawa and poet Madeline Gins who have painstakingly created monumental works like the Critical Resemblance House and the Elliptical Field. There are puzzling, maze-like structures, gravity-defying constructions and a concrete wall topped by green domes. A site mottled with optical illusions and counter-existential images, the Site of Reversible Destiny is, undoubtedly, one of the most mind-boggling attractions in the county.
