If you do anything at the Kyoto Aquarium, you've got to see the giant salamander, a protected species in Japan.
Giant salamanders inhabit the area around the Kamo River (鴨川, Kamogawa), a sightseeing spot in Kyoto, and the ecology can be seen in detail at the Kyoto Aquarium exhibition “Kyonokawa Zone.” It can be seen in the video at 0:15.

Many souvenirs are sold at the souvenir shop, including a 170cm (5.5 ft.) long, stuffed giant salamander.

At the Kyoto Aquarium, we recommend checking out "Sango Sea," where you can see clown fish, "Kaiju Zone," where you can meet cute seals, "Kyo no Umi," where you can find green turtles, and the "Penguin Zone" where many penguins live.

The performance seen at the 180-degree panoramic dolphin stadium at Kyoto Aquarium, introduced at 1:44, is amazing.
Dolphin shows can become crowded pretty quickly, so we recommend grabbing a seat sooner rather than later.

You can also participate in other events such as feeding time and experiences where you can touch some fish.
There are also lunch and cafe shops inside the hotel, so you can enjoy delicious food that can only be eaten here.
