Visiting an aquarium and the sea for the first time-Bhutanese family in Sakai City, Fukui Prefecture



I visited the Aquarium and the sea in Sakai City, Fukui Prefecture with Mr. Ugyen Dorji’s family. Mr. Ugyen Dorji has been studying at University of Fukui as a teacher trainee from Bhutan since around October of 2017.

Mr. Ugyen Dorji’s family had never seen the sea before and it was the first time for them to see it. The aquarium is right in front of the sea, so they enjoyed seeing the cute sea animals at the aquarium and the beautiful sea at the same time.



His son loves fish, and he continued looking at the fish in front of a tank

His son is only 2 years old, and his favorite thing in the world is fish. As soon as he walked into the aquarium, he was very excited to see all the fish in a large tank. He kept staring at the fish right in front of the large tank.


He is so little and shy, so I didn’t hear his voice much. But at the aquarium, I heard him saying some words clearly and happily such as “fish” and “wow”. He looked amazed by the fish and the large tank.

At the aquarium, there are beautiful jelly fish as well. I asked them how they call the jelly fish in Bhutan (Dzongkha). They said that there is no sea in Bhutan and of course they don’t have jelly fish, so they don’t know the name of it in Bhutan (Dzongkha).
