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.

  • Came here to visit right after the TOKYO Sky Tree, was not too far. Lots of nice interesting things to look at, a nice experience overall! 
  • 水族館位於晴空塔的5及6樓,人流不多,總面積不太(大約1個半小時逛完)。但水族館確實有個人特色,水箱擺放及設計比其他展館更富美學感,環境更凝聚了一股空間感。碰巧的話可看到企鵝餵食秀。這裡的工作坊也滿有趣,可以制作貼紙。今年有金魚限定展覽,場館內更掛滿金魚燈籠及千鳥燈,橙橙紅紅,增添夏日色彩。 如果你去晴空塔,不妨抽點時間來參觀。 
  • The entrance once first had a lot of tropical fish Aquarium. Movement wanted to see much more as you go along, thin Anago met around (be ∀ ') were swimming in the Aquarium's main big fish a lot and had a lot of beautiful goldfish. The Penguin was the time zone or the natsuita keeper's was coming in for a snack.

  • 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.
