3.3/5 based on 500+ reviews on the web
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.

  • I didnt expect the to be as small compared to those I have seen before, but some of the collections are none I have seen else where.. 
  • Did the penguins showed up, so still had fun, 2,050 Yen entrance fee is indeed very impressive. Okinawa Churaumi Aquarium said or felt is much less compared to the Osaka Kaiyukan". I used to wait for the sky than to come here and feel.

  • It was my first big aquarium, I was amazed. Well planned, labels in english. They have sharks and penguins. There is also food; toilets; shop etc. 
  • Not the biggest aquarium but has really interesting life (like colored jellyfish and strange fishes) and it's well designed. It his really good way to spend some time while waiting for the Skytree tower.
  • Came here instead of the skytree due to the wait. The aquarium was really small and probably wasn't worth the entrance fee. Notable fishes were the jellyfish, stone fish, the giant fishes, and penguins. Probably wouldn't come back here.
  • I give 5 stars because aquarium really care about all small details how to arrange and display all plants and all kinds of living sea life in style. Design comes to life there. Well done.
  • A good place where to get some peace. Not as crowed as the skytree, dont have to wait to get access.
  • Apart from the Amano tanks, this place felt sad. It's new, but felt run down. The animals didn't seem full of life either. I really felt sorry for the penguins.
