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.

Lovely Aquarium with many unusual fish and marine animals. Particularly loved the hammerhead sharks, puffins and bluefin tuna. Tanks are beautifully presented - clean and sparkling, stunning backdrops and clear labelling in English and Japanese. Nice cafes and shop. Easy, short walk from the station. Lovely experience. Weather was appalling as the tail end of a typhoon passed over so didn't explore the outside areas which include bird watching and wetlands.

Great place to spend a few hours. Plenty of aquariums in well maintained facility. Most displays have good English description. Penguin feeding regularly throughout the day. Not quite five star because signs to get there are not great. I initially went right to the end of the road, which is actually a viewing platform looking out to sea. You actually have to turn left just before the café on the left.

Good wet day option as it's mostly indoor. Really good aquarium at a good price. They also have puffins and penguins. Only thing that let it down was About 20 school trips happening at the same time while we where there. So hundreds of small kid making a lot of noise and out of control kids running everywhere.

This is a next level aquarium! Everything is so well thought out. Loads of information in English as well as Japanese. Incredibly beautiful setting on the coast.
