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.

Cool little aquarium, a lot like Ripley’s but way cheaper. I was really cool seeing the tuna up close and how big they really are. Entrance is easy, staff friendly, and the route is pretty much pre determined so you don’t miss anything.

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.

Beautiful big aquarium nested in a wonderful park. You should make this a one day trip and first visit the aquarium and then have a picnic in the park or on the beach. Which ever you choose it will be amazing. The aquarium is really nice and if you have kids they will have so much fun here. In addition to seeing many species of fish and marine life you can actually touch some of them. Also, the penguins are always fun to watch. One of my favorite spots in Tokyo especially with the kids. An excellent aquarium especially for the price! The kids always learn so much here! We drive all the way across Tokyo to go here and it is so worth it.
It's a great and beautiful place for the family and kids.You can see and even touch different sea creatures here. 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!

Great place to go to check out some fish and birds. The park is pretty updated and they do have some info about animals in english. I'ts not too crowded witch is really nice. The price is 700 yen and it was worth it. I like that they don't have dolphins or whales because they belong in the sea only. I really enjoyed the place.

I love this Aquarium Park, shown here in other parts of the marine life in the world. And many world class Aquarium, Aquarium Park set up for the variety of life suited to their environment. Feeling they like it here. I feast but this time, there are sharks, penguins, tuna and so on and so on.
