Merry Christmas with penguins!

A diver in the shape of Santa Claus has appeared at the Joetsu Aquarium Umigatari, and a show to feed fish and penguins has begun.

What appeared in the aquarium was a diver dressed as Santa. When I showed the horse mackerel of food, magellanic penguins gathered one after another. This is one of the Christmas events that Umigatari started on the 4th.

It is held in two places, a penguins pool and a large aquarium.
