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.

To buy a ticked requires to provide private information like your name, phone and address. That's just ridiculous for place which has absolutely nothing special.

It's a nice place for family and friends on a rainy day. Due to Covid 19, not too many travellers anymore. However, you have to buy the ticket online or get it to FamiPort (the stuff will guide you how and where you can get the ticket).
Many water creatures you can see and the newest exhibit of illuminated jellyfish. It's fun and relaxing, but it defiantly crowded on a sunny day.

One of the best aquariums in Tokyo. There's a lot of commentary in Japanese and the way the animals are displayed are beautiful. It's located inside Sunshine City, and perfect to go with a friend.

Great activity for a family with young kids on a rainy day. Due to Covid lots of animal encounter activities are suspended. Plenty of water creatures to see- besides the massive water tank in the middle, lots of small exhibits and the latest bewildering exhibit of illuminated jelly fish etc. The seal show is on the hour and worth seeing. Small and compact and takes about one hour to go through the entire aquarium.

It's a nice clean modern acquarium. Most of the enclosures were a respectable size. (Not all). The outdoor area with penguins and cafe is nice too.
