  • This aquarium features some of the most egregious animal cruelty I've seen. At first everything was okay. A lot of the fish tanks seem pretty standard for aquariums, until my friend pointed out that m...  more »
  • It's an aquarium with a show. Great tricks and very friendly atmosphere. A lot of things to do there and in the area.

  • 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.
