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.

Kids enjoy here. Make sure you arrive well before the show time as all the seats are full even before 15-20 minutes.

Shinagawa aquarium offers a few spectacular dolphin and seal shows however the centre over all feels like it needs a renovation. Bear in mind this place has plenty of visiting schools so the place may be packed with school children. The most unique part of this is the opportunity to pet sharks, rays and other sea creatures with your hands.

Great aquarium with penguins and dolphins. Would be nice if they bring Emperor penguin. Best way is take the free shuttle bus from Oimachi.

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.

Sadly, there were no shows available during my visit because of a dolphin baby. It must be a good park because it looked busy, but I asked for my money back because there were no shows. No problem.. Better luck next time perhaps.
