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.

  • Could watch for a while because the main Penguin is cute, but quickly ended otherwise because it is long is not the impression that I was. Or narrow and wider for what I thought was it is.

  • 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.
