Saje tulis omputeh,ad kesah?
On 5 Okt 2011,got a free ticket to Mie(三重) for two days as tour monitor.Not an easy job actually coz as I must write this to my blog (sori fo buroken Ingrish),answered some questionnaire and write the translations into Japanese.Nevermind,its free.hehe.
Ok,where's MIE?Google Map it.
Ok,on day one we went to the Toba Aquarium(鳥羽水族館).
You can find all the info's here ---> http://www.aquarium.co.jp/english/index.html.
It's quite huge but we managed to go every inches the aquarium within given time(2hrs 30min) somehow.
Let me share with you a secret.There have animal shows either at A or L corner every 30 min from 10:30am to 15:00pm.The animals will be either seals,. penguin or walrus.You can get the show schedule(blue paper, Japanese) at the counter.Unfortunately I didn't find the English's one,so maybe you can just ask the staff there.
Also you can see the staff feeding the animals on
9:40 (I corner )
And some pictures
After that we went to the Mikimoto pearls island,origins of the famous Mikimoto's pearls franchise,just next to the aquarium.It a small island with a bridge connected to it.

And every hour(not sure) you can see women divers demonstrating how they harvest the cultivated pearls.
And also you can buy discounted pearl jewelries and souvenirs here.Its said that the Mikimoto's pearls are the finest in the world.http://www.mikimotoamerica.com/
