We got to see many dolphins being trained. They let us go right up to the pools. You can even get in the pools with them during free play time.
On our recent trip to Wakayama and Shingu we stopped at the controversial and famous Taiji Village, home the "The Cove." It is a beautiful place and we did see a lot of dolphins. I took some video, but did not get many good photos of the live dolphins. These statues were cute though.
One of my favorite spots in Kushimoto.
