Located on the west side of the bay, the aquarium houses 10,000 animals of 450 different species. Stroll along the 22 m (72 ft) long tank tunnel as sea turtles, tiger sharks, stingrays, and seals swim all around you. Stop by the reef ecosystem area, which exhibits a colorful display of coral organisms and tropical fish. A dolphin show--for many, the highlight here--runs four times a day in the outdoor stadium.

  • Is a good but unspectacular as the Aquarium exhibit when it comes there once, Dolphin compact easier, fun and helpful from oimachi station free shuttle bus

  • I have been a favorite in South Korea compared to the Aquarium also was really not much scale! It also rides very few think it's a really good mind and children education. Lovers don't mind too romantic with course work. A lot of various fish species! A glimpse of the little balls the size of everything. highly recommended!

  • The aquarium would not have taste. Effort of keepers such as Christmas decorations can be seen. Dolphin and seal shows the stage very compact! Then the sense of intimacy. Especially seals were views in close. Sumida, and Ikebukuro was also different Aquarium.

  • Smaller than we anticipated. The enclosures for these animals are really small, but the animal life seems happy - the dolphins have lots of social scrapes that lead us to believe they're very active and happy. The staff are very good and the aquarium is very clean. Absolutely loved the Sea Lion, though he seemed quite lonely, but he gave me a kiss through the glass! Don't miss the Grey Reef Sharks.
  • Great fun for kids. Dolphin show. It's not flashy and "high quality" like the skytree aquarium, but had good time and very nice displays. Its a bit small.
  • We had a wonderful time here yesterday! While not a large aquarium it had plenty of interesting exhibits. We loved being able to walk thru the tunnel in a large tank full of amazing fish and turtles while they were being fed. The dolphin show was very entertaining and fun!
  • I've had a quite funny storry with the Aquarium: it had many ratings and good reviews as an Aquarium near Tokyo center. So I've looked through many options, and I've missplaced the days when was opened. So when I've got there, I've realised that was the only day when it was closed and I was really embarrassed about it. So, my bad. But the Aquarium is sorrounded by a beautiful park, where you can enjoy a great time. So I will definitely checkout next time the Shinagawa Aquarium when I'll visit Tokyo! Really looking forward for the fish tunnel!
  • A small aquarium but fun trip if you have kids. In our case we had to switch trains at Shinagawa Station, but it was still worth it. From the train station there are signs showing the right direction and after a short walk you will arrive at the aquarium. It can be crowded during weekends but it's a great way to spend a few hours.

Where to stay in Tokyo

Tokyo abounds with excellent places to stay, from luxury affairs to humble budget-friendly lodgings. Its glittering skyscrapers house numerous international four- and five-star hotels, both in the populous cultural hotspots of Shinjuku and in the business centers of Akasaka and Shinbashi. Meanwhile, hostels catering to the shoestring traveler lie scattered throughout the city. For a memorable, distinctly Japanese experience, seek out a ryokan, a traditional bed and breakfast with tatami floor mats and sliding screen doors.
