This aquarium in the south of Tokyo shows around 10,000 underwater creatures of 450 different species under the concept of "encountering oceans and rivers". The giant 500-ton tank has a large variety of fish, including those found in Tokyo Bay. A 20m-long tunnel tank provides 180-degree views of rays and giant eels, with a sunken ship and treasure boxes are mysteriously arranged using optical fibers.

The crowd pleaser is impressive dolphin and sea lion shows, where visitors are seated closely to the pool. Among new features include an expanded shark-only tank, an underwater tunnel to view seals, and the Jellyfish zone with more than 200 jellyfish. The aquarium is located at the southern end of Shinagawa Park and a 10-min walk from Omori-kaigan Station.

A nice and small Aquarium. They have a dolphin show there. It is a typical Japanese place.

Very pretty aquarium. It's small, but lots of fun for kids. They even had dolphin shows and a seal exhibition. Everything is in Japanese, so I really didn't understand anything being said, and thankfully they didn't call on us to volunteer for the seal show. There's free WiFi throughout the whole place, but you do have to sign in. Worth it if you have kids. And make sure you are ready to get drenched in the dolphin show if you sit in certain spots. For 100 yen, they sell you a see through pancho.

My visit was totally unenjoyable due to the groups of elementary school student outings at the aquarium. The children were extremely loud, and the teachers/escorts made no attempts to remind children to keep their voices down, or use "inside voice". May be it is socially acceptable here for school children to run around and yelling everywhere inside the aquariums. Because of the noise level, I could not enjoy the exhibition and the show. Don't waste money on getting in if there are class visits. The dolphin show is boring compare to SeaWorld (USA) or Ocean Park(Honk Kong). The show is approximately 15 mins, with the host talking for the first 5 mins. The remaining 10 minutes for usual dolphin tricks. It is a local show, not worth your time. We left after one show.
