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.

This was a cool place built in the mall! I had some trouble finding it but if you looked at directories then it'll be a sinch.
It was really fun looking @all the different kind of species after a long day of shopping @Sunshine City Mall.
My friends and I had a BLAST!

I had a difficult time believing that an aquarium located in an office building/mall/hotel could be worthwhile, but was more than pleasantly surprised. The rooftop exhibits were constructed in a unique way to add to the experience and they have a large variety of indoor exhibits.

The place is quite nice to look at, the way they display the creatures are fascinating, however I cannot help but to feel sympathetic for these sea creatures. The tank is crazy small and they don't have any space to move around. It was really depressing to see.

A nice place to be at, different from the conventional aquariums as this is on the roof and there's an outdoor aquarium as well!
Went there at 4pm so didnt manage to catch much of the shows except of the feeding in the Underwater world. The management should update the schedule of the shows as well as there's one that ended in 2019.
