  • 因飯店就在水族館樓下所以空閒時就上樓參觀水族館,雖然裡面館內並不大但裡面的海生還真是可愛呢!建議入住太陽城王子的旅客若有帶小朋友可以上樓看看 
  • It's a good aquarium with plenty to see. But It can get really busy, even in off peak times. It's worth a visit but it's nothing too special. 
  • Frequently attracts travelers take pictures of fish in an aquarium. During the building of the Aquarium, so no one like the killer whale and dolphin show, swimming sea lions head waterslide like passage highlights to watch much and think. If you would do better to think of it as the spot to cool off during the hot summer and therefore especially stroll in Ikebukuro, and do things to kill some time, admission is high, watching the fish in the main purpose, Shinagawa Aquarium rooms are better I think. In waiting for also visiting for the holidays (especially holidays) and going to the Aquarium floor elevator ride, waiting to buy tickets columns and Oita wait by the entrance.

  • The entrance fee is 2000円 for high school students to adults. Elementary/middle schoolers and seniors get a lower fee. There are a bunch of tanks of fish, big and small. Jelly fish, rays, sharks, sea horses, and reptiles are also on display in tanks. There is an outdoor section with animals such as penguins, pelicans, otters, and seals. There are two shows, one in the large tank and one on a stage with seals. Definitely worth a visit!
  • I did not expect much when going here, as I just dropped by after a visit to the Pokemon Center, but it was surprising enjoyable and one of my most enjoyable moments in Tokyo! You can tell the people who work here genuinely love the animals, which adds a lot to the experience. Not overcrowded (weekday), unlike many other Tokyo attractions.
  • The two floor aquarium is 2 floors, and there's an out door aquarium where the sea lions reside. There's sea lion shows which children really seem to really enjoy. There are pelicans and African penguins which are in an open top tank. Totally worth the $20 admission fee.
  • Great aquarium. The kids (9yo and 4yo) really enjoyed he displays. Highly recommended!
  • Make sure to see all the shows if you come! Then it is worth the $20. At least see the 30 minute show in front of the fish tank.
