I’m Ku-min, who loves my hometown OITA♪
What a great first-time experience! I swam with dolphins!
Let’s go to the Tsukumi Dolphin Island of Umitama Experience Park.
The place where I had fun with dolphins is called “Tsukumi Dolphin Island” located in Tsukumi city. It is where I took a highway from Oita city and drove for around 50 minutes. Once you got off the highway, there are signboards of the Dolphin Island everywhere in the city, so please follow those as a guide.
Try to reach Youra.
If you are traveling along the Gulf, you can see the dolphin island in the distance.
This facility is operated by Tsukumi city and the very popular aquarium named UMITAMAGO in Oita city, located near by the sea, which offers an experience of interaction and healing for humans, this park gives you a chance to play with 15 dolphins.
The energetic dolphins welcomed me. The dolphins feel free because the location is like their natural habitat.
When I looked at the scene, a dolphin is jumping high in the sky, I was very excited about it!!
Although my hair was all tangled as it was a windy day, I took a photo with the dolphin while I was holding their flag.♥
Let’s swim with dolphins! ～Interaction experience～
The water temperature that day was 21 degrees, I made a decision to become friends with the dolphins so I decided to swim with them despite of the strong wind.
Firstable, greeting with the dolphin♥
I softly touched a dolphin’s stomach… it’s kind of building a skin ship♥
The name of the dolphin I swam with is Hayato-kun♥
I firmly held a part of Hayato-kun’s body and swam together swiftly.
It was exciting and I was having too much fun.
This scene is when I am feeding him as his reward.
I am holding a part of Hayato-kun’s body with a great smile♪
After this, I also swam with getting on his stomach as he jumped high in the sky.
The scene of practice.
Please watch the scene where he greatly jumps in this video♪
He jumped in the sky swiftly and high ~♥
There there♥ And after this, he kissed me…♥♥♥
I was completely healed~♥
And again, with the flag of “Onsen-prefecture Oita” , Memorial photograph with Hayato-kun, who played with us today and the staff who supported me♥
I didn’t even expect that there was such a great place I can play with dolphins… Oita is the best!
And I was able to hear a wide variety of story about the charm of dolphin island from Mr.Himeno who works as the manager.
Also I was able to build up nice relationship with Mr. Tsuda.
In commemoration of today’s day…
In commemoration of today’s day … lastly, I also was able to experience finding and taking out pearls from oysters.
Commemorative photo with staffs♪
I think I will set this day as my Dolphin day. They even gave me some shells that are gorgeously wrapped.
A healing place where adults can enjoy.
Dolphins were swimming at dusk and it made me very relax.
I wish we can jump up together!
It was full of action and I had a lot fun with the feeling like going back to my childhood after a long time~♥
And above all, I was healed by the interaction I had with the dolphins♥♥♥
I promised to go back to this place again and left Dolphin Island!
It is my first experience with the dolphins and adults like me can have a great time in a place like this.“IT’S FUN!” “IT’S FUN!” I shouted over and over again.
And I want to let people know that there is such a place where you can have a fun with the dolphins like what I have experienced. Come everyone! Let’s go to Tsukumi Dolphin Island!!
