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.

Well worth my short stopover before heading to the airport. I would recommend about 3 hours stay as the creatures are so interesting and kinda rare. The deep sea section was an eye opener for me! The highlight was definitely the Tuna viewing gallery😊

Cool concept but I wouldn't spend the time here of you have other things to do on your itinerary. We spent two hours here and felt like it was too much, so to commute here for over an hour each way, we felt like it wasn't the best use of time.
They have ramps in most places, but you're not getting the same experience in a stroller or a wheelchair as you would on foot.
In terms of attractions, there are a few interesting to see such as the tuna tank and the penguins, but the rest is pretty common I would say.

This hidden gem is a must see when you are in the area. The aquarium isn't the largest but it definetly has quality and charm on it's side. All the staff were friendly and absolutely helpful and informative, even in English. The gift shop has some really nice options for people of all ages and the cafe has some good food.
The main attraction for me is definitely the massive tuna tank, don't miss it.
