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.

Its can be really good if i can see aquarium with google street view like 360° camera.
Because the site is large, it is recommended to visit in spring and autumn rather than summer and winter.
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.
Small and old. Some interesting things, but I wonder if the spaces are way too small for the animals.
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

Went here to see the Christmas tree illuminated by electric eels. We were not disappointed!
Most of the exhibits have English information alongside Japanese. It's a relatively small aquarium, bit it's nice. A great place to spend an afternoon.

1. A VERY local aquarium. All shows are conducted in Japanese. Both my children can speak and read Japanese so translations all round for my hubby and me...
2. As expected, very orderly queues and and very clean toilets...
3. The aquarium is under going renovation so be careful where you when you exit. Sigh posts everywhere but all in Japanese.
4. We were there late December. Probably we made up the 1% of non-Japanese visitors there.
5. Many species of sea life on exhibit and check out the shows available on their website. Younger kids will enjoy the shows.
