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.

Highly recommended sea life park with lots of marine dishes and animals on display. Highlights are the blue finned tuna, housed in a large two storey tank, and the penguins which are housed in a outdoor enclosure that include above and below water viewing gallery. There are also touching pools for the young ones to experience marine life. Good way to spend half a day to take a break from the Disney theme parks.

Nice sea aquarium in Tokyo that is 1 station away from Disneyland. Many interesting displays of fishes and interactive activities and you can easily spend a few hours walking through it. There’s even an open penguin enclosure where you can see penguins up close. Restaurant located inside the aquarium serves tasty and affordable food and drinks options.

A large variety of sealife to see. The tuna tank is massive and so are the fish, an easy place to spend 1/2 a day and it's cheap. The canteen is well worth a visit and I can recommend the vegetable curry.

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.
