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.

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. :)

Value for money attraction. Compact aquarium with interesting shows. The restaurant is nice as well. I went on weekend, very comfortable and not crowded. I bought the ticket online.

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.

I like aquariums, and this has much to love, with many cute creatures, and a great dolphin and otter show. The aquarium is small, though, and most of the Marine mammals look bored and depressed. I know space is hard to come by but at some point, humane treatment trumps our desire for entertainment. Also, locking a duck up in a small tank seems wrong. There are ducks right outside the aquarium.

It's a small more child-oriented aquarium. Great for what it is. Takes about an hour to walk through if there's no scheduled Seal/Dolphin show.
