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.

It is a great place to take kids. There is a lot to see and you can easily spend over an hour or two here. The aquarium is small though and when it gets busy it gets really crowded. We were here on a Sunday and the aquarium tunnel was so crowded I felt like I was on the subway at peak hour. There should be some management of crowd flow, even just from a safety perspective. I recommend limiting the total number of visitors who can be here at any given time. My little one loved it and was super excited to see all the various underwater creatures. There are lockers outside that can be used for a fee. Prams cannot be taken inside, but there is a dedicated area where you can park them outside. Cash only.

Great place for a rainy day! It looks like there was a lot of the stuff not open yet. I'm not sure if it was cause it was a week day, or if it was because it was off season. But the aquarium was great!

Nice acquariame, you will see all kind of fishes in small and compact place. Every day you have multiple shows Dolphin, sea lion and etc, so plan before hand to enjoy all shows. Cost wise it's affordable acquariame.

The underwater walk path was definitely the hit with my family. It's clean and neat. The pool where you put your hands in and a bunch of little fish swamp up to kiss (gnaw) your hands was another unique experience.
There was a booth where you get to pick open a shell for real pearl (for an additional 1000 yen). If you want them to make the pearl into a ring, a pendent or a earring, you can pay additional yen for their service.
Overall we had enjoyed the visit. :)

Small but good for kids. Location not great but once there the dolphin show is fine. Maybe 3.5 stars in reality.
