Sumida Aquarium, Sumida

(3.4/5 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.

  • We stayed just opposite during our Tokyo Visit and decided to pop by for a quick visit during one late afternoon. This wasn't a big aquarium but it was big enough to keep our 4 year old entertained. T...  more »
  • I felt that the exhibition in General. Tank is transparent and exhibit other fish is clearly visible. Have a look to be happy. I want to see again.

  • So it is not a large aquarium, indoor hot days, rainy days and cold weather can be enjoyed. Downtown would be goldfish exhibition, is unique. Admission is not cheap, but the capital I is no travel costs are lower in total?

  • The Sumida Aquarium is what I would call a boutique aquarium. It is entirely enclosed inside, well laid out with dimmed lights and cool ambiance. The highlights for my kids were the jellyfish, sand eels, and penguins. A fun day would be the Sky Tree, Kodomonoyu Indoor Playcenter and Sumida Aquarium. Details on all three can be found on the BestLivingJapan website.
  • A little bit tiny in my opinion, but there isn't much place in the building in the first place. Also, it's on the freaking 4th and 5th floor.
  • A good aquarium with a bar inside! Well worth visiting for an event though don't expect it to be as big as the other Tokyo aquariums or have as many exotic exhibitions
  • One of the most awesome aquarium I've ever seen. The penguins are its main attractions. Come when it's feeding time.
  • Takshi Amano tanks were decent, perhaps a little neglected. Jellyfish were cool.
