Sunshine Aquarium, with a concept of "oasis in the sky", is Japan's first aquarium built on the rooftop. The most prominent is the aquarium's outdoor area with a donut-shaped tank suspended 2.3m above the floor, where sea lions and penguins float against the blue sky and skyscrapers. The indoor zone features Japan's first tunnel-shaped tanks displaying jelly fish, and a tank for huge ocean sunfish.

Other attractions include a sea lion show on the stage that can be viewed 360 degrees, and an in-tank performance show in which a diver introduces each fish using a microphone. Rarely seen creatures such electric eels, wolffish and sea angels are also drawing visitors. Easy access from Ikebukuro Station and other fun places in the Sunshine City complex makes this spot a worthwhile visit.

Got to watch a sea lion and penguin show which was really cute. Animals seem to be well trained and looked after. Beautiful collection of fish.

Beautiful atmosphere and very Well presented. If they had a little bit more variety and open space for those penguins it would be a 5/5

A good way to spend 2 hours. It's an aquarium on the 9th floor of a shopping complex. There exhibits are on the very cool but it'll only take 30 to 40 minutes to walk through them. The seal show was awesome. My favorite animal was the sunfish. That thing is huge!

Quite small and not much to do besides looking at the sea life, a good layout although some halls are cramped.

The restaurants are good with a good choice of food and drinks but waiting times can be long during peak times.

Lots to see but some tanks have no real design leaving you feeling a bit sorry for some fish in a plan tank with nothing else inside it.
