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.

Whilst it looks to be under renovation, we still had a great time here as the inside will not affect you. The variety of species were amazing and interactivity for children kept them amused the entire time. The tank environments look very creative and look to not affect the species. Recommended and hope to return, entry prices were at a suitable price also.

This place is very good for looking at the different species of fish, even though the place is small compared to other aquarium that i have visited but they actually got a decent variety of fish and aquatic animals.
They have four kinds of show, the dolphin, sea lion, seal and divers feeding, just keep track of the schedule because people will start waiting in the place 30 minutes before the show.
The entry price for adults is 1300 yen.

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.

Not a bad place to visit. I wasn't a fan of how the penguins tank looked. Didn't seem clean or big enough. Same with the shark tank and dolphins area. I felt kind of sad being there. I did enjoy the tanks of smaller fish who seemed to have enough space to move around.

Nice Aquarium with plenty of rare species. The tube for fish and Sea lion watching is excellent. The Dolfin and Sea Lions show is a key attraction to the kids as well as elders.
