(3.8/5 based on 260+ reviews on the web)
Submerge yourself in an underwater world at Shinagawa Aquarium, displaying a vast array of marine life for the whole family to enjoy. 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.

  • Dad and 2-year-old child ○ and that sees a dolphin show in Tokyo's 23 wards, dolphins 3 / pet's? Also, that can feel the harmony of life, flora and fauna and has become a nature park that are compact and facilities around nature and natural park is a good environment, good views and facilities around,-near Haneda Airport for planes is seen frequently, can re-enter it again even if ticket x-slightly with age of the facilities and compact because crowded (1) is making think that well compared to overall sunshine can't see your fish bumping into someone (2) (3) tank waiting to be or river water felt like the old Coco products water. But in another it is a downside Kudos do you think Dolphin has been doing in Shinagawa-ku, where is a reclaimed area near the sea even in a small space you can dolphin show otherwise is not a particularity of water products, such as displaying the underwater tunnels and seal Museum I would say think Tokyo location so convenient, stuck in traffic, but will depend on the person and take Aquarium + show + natural park, going to Haneda Airport? In the kamata I drank dumplings? Of a in what any further: I think here only to fail one day children delighted would the dolphins jump!

  • All the family enjoyed. Misc Aquarium's unique air, to tour comfortably. I enjoyed the dolphin show.

  • Where to take kids holiday at the Aquarium designed small, good facilities. However, it is not worth going from outside the city as a tourist destination is smaller in scale, no special treatment.

  • The good: dolphins, seals, sea turtles, penguins, sharks, jellyfish, wide variety of fish, located in a nice park with a small lake. The bad: small, old, busy, relatively cramped, difficult to access unless you drive, inadequate parking spaces, and in need of a retrofit. Also, the dolphin tank is woefully small and the whole place is really showing its age. Fun for small children, less so for adults. There are so many better aquariums in Japan.
  • There are two aquariums in Shinagawa area. One is near Shinagawa Station called Aqua Park (very new), the this one is near Omorikaigan Station (older). I went on a date to this aquarium and we really enjoyed our time. The aquarium is older and gives you the charm of the 90s somehow, but we liked that. We went there on a Saturday and it was a little bit crowded, but not extremely. You could enjoy all attractions like the dolphin show. We especially liked the tank with the small fish you clean your skin up when you put your hands in it. We decided to go to this aquarium instead of the other really new Aqua Park, because in Tokyo everything is crowded, especially on a weekend and new things are even more crowded. If you don't mind a little retro and if you don't fancy lining up or moving in huge crowds, I recommend you this one.
  • Great place to visit whenever! The staff is very friendly, the shows are worth to stay and watch (the feeding in the tunnel tank is so exciting!!), all animals are great to observe and learn, the establishment is clean and cozy. Would visit again!
  • Great for kids of all ages. Walking there was really nice as well since there were plenty of parks with tons of greenery if you walk in the inside along the river. Even a river walk would be nice here if you were around the area. Restaurant was right on the spot as well with not overly priced food. Around $10-12 a plate range. Aquarium was really nice itself. 5 year old liked it and nice enough for a 1 year old to run around without having to worry much. Penguin, sharks, seals, dolphins and some gigantic turtles so it was interesting for adults too I'd say. They have dolphin shows there at specific times but we didn't get a chance to stay there. I'd say this place is about an hour of good fun and the show area for the dolphin show looked nice. Overall great place. Also very wheelchair friendly here. My brother also bought tickets at 7 Eleven and said they were cheaper.
  • I loved this place as a child and I still love it as an adult! The aquarium isn't too big so it won't be overwhelming or exhausting, yet they have all the wonderful sea creatures and a dolphin show, too. The area outside of the aquarium is also great for picnics or strolls as it is a park. The only downfall is that it's a bit out of the way for some train stations, but that gives it the good open air feel for the area.
