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.

This aquarium is quite lovely and has many different species of fishes and two big sharks. I enjoyed so much our day there and we used the purikura machine to remember with a photo. a really big plus is the gift shop, which is cheaper than other aquariums and places around. Lovely, quiet, beautiful, That's all.

A relatively small, but well-priced aquarium. The tanks are a bit small, but the animals all seemed happy, healthy, active, and well cared for. The sea lion and dolphin shows are also very entertaining to watch.

They only take cash and the next atm is 15 minutes walk there and 15 minutes back....
Sadly they don't care much about animal care. The aquariums are way to small and the don't have plants / anemones or corals with most of the fishes that would need them. No sand or gravel as well only concrete!
The poor octopus, a very intelligent animal had a very small and empty glass tank!
Please start caring about the animals!

A fun place to hang out with kids. You can spend maximum 2 hours at this place. I loved the dolphin show 😊

This is a nice aquarium, has a lot of informative displays and covers a lot of different species of sea creatures. Lots of interactive things like a tree with different displays at all levels for kids to climb, explore and discover. There is a tank of Garra rufa fish that you can sink your hands into. Overall it's a very nice aquarium with a nice garden/pond outside. Note that when we gone the resident dolphin had just given birth, so the big tank along with all the 'shows' that would involve the big tank or dolphins are closed.
