What is the specialty of this instructor?Research and study of sea turtles
ProfileBorn and raised in Shimoda, joined Shimoda Marine 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 drifting ashore of dead bodies 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."
CommentShimoda's sandy beach maintains good condition as a spawning place for sea turtles. Although the number is small, loggerhead turtles lay eggs almost every year. Featuring such information is very important for protecting sea turtles. I hope you will understand that the aquarium is following these activities. In addition, Shimoda Marine Aquarium offers lecture about actual research and study of Japanese sea turtle if you request.

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 sand beaches, rocky shores and rugged cliffs. Small fishing ports and of course, Shimoda Harbor in the center. Each is very attractive and enjoyable.
