Tokyo Sealife Aquarium4.4
This aquarium in Kasai Rinkai Park has been very popular since its opening in 1989. The whole structure is a 31m-high glass dome, which is easy to spot from a distance, and houses a huge 2,200-ton donut like tank for large fish like skipjack tunas and yellow-fin tuna to circulate. The exhibit of more than 100 penguins is among the largest of its kind in Japan.
One section provides panels to learn about the environment inside Tokyo Bay and outside including the Ogasawara and the Izu islands. Other highlights include rarely seen fish off Australia and in the Arctic and Antarctic areas, and some species from Tokyo Bay and the nearby waters which are familiar to Japanese cuisine. Near the aquarium is a seabird garden recommended to those interested in the creatures in the sky.

It is suitable as a recession place with family. Baby strollers can enter the location. Visiting this location is recommended on weekdays. When we visited yesterday, we many groups of students who travelled with their teachers. The site is very well maintained at affordable prices, even free for children under 12 years. If we bring food, there is an excellent location for eating food outside the building, near the restaurant. The bustling area of visitors is in ponds of tuna, penguins and sharks. Maybe missed, we did not find dolphins and whales. It will be more interesting if there is a special cinema room for the introduction of the world of water, in the form of video in general, or 360 degrees.

This is a very kids friendly (or adult with kids heart) location! The aquarium is just 10mins walk from the station. You can find different kinds of fish and sea creatures here.
This park also got a lovely architectural design. The bell shape glass cover is so iconic that you may not want to miss it in your photo.

A very nice aquarium/sea life park. Very reasonably priced and English friendly. Also there are other attractions (ex. ferris wheel) nearby. The rustic setting on the edge of Tokyo Bay is nice also.

One of the nicest aquariums in the Tokyo area. They have several huge aquariums, especially one with tuna that are swimming really fast. Around the aquarium is also a lovely park and a large bird reserve.

Brilliant design of the building itself! The fish tanks are classified by the habitats worldwide such as those near Japan, deep in the ocean, or Great Barrier Reef. The introduction of each of them is informative even to kids. This is a place for families going for a trip!
