Sumida Aquarium, Sumida

3.4
#5 of 10 in Zoos & Aquariums in Tokyo
At Sumida Aquarium, see marine life up close in an ingeniously designed modern aquarium housing over 10,000 sea creatures. Part of a shopping and entertainment complex, the aquarium features a research laboratory, as well as tanks representing the habitats around Tokyo Bay. As you enter, notice how no visible support obscures your view through the tanks' thick, clear glass, enabling you to observe animals from any angle. Examine and photograph a wide range of species, including penguins, seals, jellyfish, and sharks. Note that lines can get rather long to enter.

  • It is a very small hotel. Main is the jellyfish, penguins. I enjoyed cinanago's favorite. Compared to the entry fee, and is healed, but may be a little lack of impressive aquarium. It might be nice to visit during special annual pass, so spare time.

  • Visited with my wife and 7 month old son (from the UK). Had a great time at the aquarium. It isn't huge but is very well laid out in 8 zones over two floors. Quite educational with all signage translated into English so no need for audio guides etc. Highlights were the large central tank with floor to ceiling glass containing some extraordinary sealife you could get a really good view of. Our son loved this. There is also a large open tank containing penguins which was another highlight, particularly as we caught feeding time! Could easily get around in less than 2 hours. Baby changing facilities excellent! There is a separate baby feeding room. Cafe inside serving coffee and ice cream which we didn't use.
  • Been to a lot of different aquariums in different countries and this is by far the best one. Its smaller but the fishes and displays are awesome. Loved it!
  • It is a very small aquarium. The visit will not take more than 2 hours (if you don't have a kid). The main attractions are the Penguins and the main Aquarium with a shark and a manta. There are some beautiful jellyfish
  • Very beautiful displays. Colorful fishes and jellyfish. Penguins are very lively and jumping around.
  • It's a small Aquarium, but features aquatic fauna with some exotic ones nicely. Loved the exhibits on various types of jellyfish.

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.
