Undersea walks with virtual characters in the seas of various parts of Japan – Virtual Ocean Project project “Undersea Great Adventure! Exploration Tour to Learn ‘Ocean'”
Saturday, December 3rd, 2022 to Sunday, December 4th, 2022 (2 days only) SMART AQUARIUM SHIZUOKA

General Incorporated Association Children’s Adventure Experience Creation Lab will hold a Virtual Ocean Project at SMART AQUARIUM SHIZUOKA, a new style aquarium that is close to your life, for two days from December 3rd (Sat) to December 4th (Sun), 2022. We will hold a planning event “Undersea adventure! Exploration tour to learn “sea””.
At this event, you can take a walk under the sea while enjoying real-time interaction with a whale shark character, and see underwater scenes from Okinawa and other parts of Japan through 360-degree camera footage. While enjoying the feeling of swimming in the sea, you can enjoy learning about the characteristics of sea creatures, commentary on their ecology, and marine problems.

The event is free to attend and no advance reservations are required. This event is part of the “Nippon Foundation ‘Sea and Japan Project'” that connects people through the sea in order to pass on the rich and beautiful sea to the next generation.
■ Great adventure in the sea! What is an exploration tour to learn about the “sea”?
A program that allows you to enjoy the underwater world and learn about marine life and marine issues through 360-degree images and conversations with virtual characters. Starting with the Churaumi Aquarium in Okinawa in August 2022, we plan to expand to several other locations such as AQUARIUM x ART atoa in Hyogo and Smart Aquarium Shizuoka in Shizuoka. (As of November 2022)
As an initiative unique to Shizuoka/SMART AQUARIUM SHIZUOKA this time, we will collaborate with SMART AQUARIUM SHIZUOKA’s character, Strawberry Poison Dart Frog Oscar, and a quiz to have fun learning about the environmental problems of the sea that you can see while looking at various seas. We are also preparing gifts.
■What is the Virtual Ocean Project?
This initiative aims to create an environment where anyone can experience the world of the sea and learn about the problems of the sea, regardless of location, age, or disability. We hope that each and every person who comes into contact with this content will learn about the current state of the ocean and become an ambassador to pass on a rich ocean to the next generation.
