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.

The sunshine aquarium was BEAUTIFUL! I love that it was on a roof and the seals and penguin exhibits were awesome. The variety of sea life they have was really nice and their shop is full of cute goodies to take home. I also really enjoyed all the Halloween decorations they had. Overall it was a great time and I would love to return.

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

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.
