The Okinawa Churashima Foundation opened an Okinawa Churaumi Aquarium merchandise shop on Kokusai Street in Kumoji district of Naha on April 26. Many people visited the shop to buy products that were previously only sold at the aquarium and in the Yambaru areas of the northern part of Okinawa.

The shops displays a mini aquarium that contains clownfishes, a popular feature of the Okinawa Churaumi Aquarium. It also screens whale sharks swimming on a 200-inch TV, creating a unique and relaxing aquarium atmosphere.

The shop has a booth for special products from the Yambaru region.
Shop owner Keisuke Kato said, “By conveying the charms of Yambaru, mainly focusing on the aquarium, we would like to attract tourists to the northern areas of Okinawa.”

One of the visitors Yumi Takara said, “I bought a dried laver seaweed shaped like a whale shark. I am glad to have found this in Naha because I noticed and liked the product when I visited the aquarium before.”
