    It is within 10 minutes ' walk from Keihin Kyuko Omori-Kaigan Aquarium. I did not and does not check route brochure, 2-floor structure is in the maze of involved, so there! Hope very much. Also, the slope is very steep, narrow stairs, careful. Elevator was worried about. Shorter than the dolphin's main event is the brochure was written (20 minutes), there was no even less impressive. For attractions, such as the swimming competitions were folded end annual dolphin show for kids, enjoying the best dolphin show in the final. May as well go on the bus when I feel tired because there is free bus for oimachi.

    From my house near a luxury for the entered with the opening in the morning. From Omori-Kaigan station and 5-10 minutes is not enough. Usually Tuesday is closed, but open daily during the summer vacation. For breakfast in the morning was the one still customers less for fish and many take pictures too! It is also Aquarium are listed in the brochure, but also various treatments, such as dolphin and seal shows and thoroughly enjoyable. Dining options are not in the building, only vending machines. Would like to dine out once, in close proximity to restaurants. Be assured because you can re-enter if you show even once out of stub. Outside is mad cool building in teriyaki sauce, so in the summer lies ahead for recommended locations are travelling with children.

    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.
