Research and study of sea turtles

Name

Nickname

Turtle Hermit

Profile

Born and raised in Shimoda, joined Shimoda Aquarium in 1989. As I learned that loggerhead turtles come to lay eggs in Shimoda, I started researching egg laying landing in the beach and death drift since 1991. In 2004, I used the green turtle and studied and announced "Changes in nutritional status during the fasting time of the sea turtle."

Comment

Shimoda's sandy beach maintains a good condition as a spawning place for sea turtles. Although the number is small, loggerhead turtles lay eggs almost every year. Summarizing such information is very important for protecting sea turtles. I hope you will understand that the aquarium is doing these activities. In addition, Shimoda Aquarium offers lecture about actual research and study of Japanese sea turtle if you request.

My recommendations

How delicious! Best restaurants to enjoy local specialties of Shimoda
It is Ryoma, a Japanese restaurant. My favorites are of course sashimi, and tempura to be fried in front of me.

The most favorite spot in the ocean of Shimoda and what makes the spot so special
I like every coastline of Shimoda. Many scattered sand beaches, rocky shores to rugged cliffs. Small fishing ports and of course, Shimoda Harbor in the center. Each is very attractive and enjoyable.
