From the time of her capture up until June 2010, Nami had lived in a seapen at the Taiji Whaling Museum. Trainers never entered the water with Nami due to her dominant personality. She also did not get along with Taiji's other female orca Ku or any dolphins she was ever grouped with.

Origin of Nami
Once Nami was transferred to Nagoya, she did befriend a dolphin. Nagoya had plans with Kamogawa Sea World to transfer two of their orcas, Bingo and Stella, to the aquarium in 2011. It was hoped that Bingo and Nami would produce a calf. Due to the Tsunami that occurred, the transfer was set back, only for Nami to pass away from an illness in January 2011.
