  • In very nice when you go to after a long time and was getting really good. The staff both adults and children who were showing. Especially, a large water tank while entranced with their children. Also flying in the sky like Penguin tank showing the wide variety and great satisfaction. You want to go again.

  • You back to childhood. Excellent show. Cards are accepted. Those who live in Mediterranean areas tend not to have these shows

  • Amazing aquarium inside a shopping mall. Felt very atmospheric and there weren't many people there at the time. Some jaw-dropping creatures within!
  • One of the best aquarium we visited. It's small but there are lots of things to see. The shark tank was great with lots of fish and a few sharks swimming. Then a diver got into the tank and talked to the audiences. Great for little children. Then there was this strange looking Ocean Sunfish. Great place to visit if you are in Sunshine City.
  • The aquarium is nice however it is so packed. You can't even look at the fish with the amount of people there. Perhaps you can try to see it in a weekday when it might be less crowded.
  • Great place to visit, with or without children's. 2000 yen entrance. They have really good shows . We are spend 4 hours with our little 2 y.o daughter! She was exited about everything
  • I like this place. They have a lot of this small aquarium with a different species of aquatic life. They also have a very big aquarium that has difficult marine inhabitants. They also have a show where trained seals does some tricks.

Where to stay in Tokyo

Tokyo abounds with excellent places to stay, from luxury affairs to humble budget-friendly lodgings. Its glittering skyscrapers house numerous international four- and five-star hotels, both in the populous cultural hotspots of Shinjuku and in the business centers of Akasaka and Shinbashi. Meanwhile, hostels catering to the shoestring traveler lie scattered throughout the city. For a memorable, distinctly Japanese experience, seek out a ryokan, a traditional bed and breakfast with tatami floor mats and sliding screen doors.
