    Tokyo Sumida-ku Oshiage 1-1-2 Tokyo Sky Tree Town/Sola Machi 5/6 F
    This aquarium is located in the 5th and 6th floors of Tokyo Soramachi(R) inside Tokyo Skytree Town(R). It has attracted attention for exhibits that break the mold of typical aquariums. These include the Tokyo Daisuiso, which recreates the waters of the Ogasawara Islands, a world heritage site. It also includes the Edorium, which displays goldfish in dreamlike Japanese-style spaces. At the Aqua Lab, visitors can watch the caretakers breed and research jellyfish. Visitors love watching the penguins swim in the aquarium's indoor open pool tank, one of the largest in Japan.

    Small aquarium but beautiful! Enjoyed all the exhibits, mostly the penguins, they are adorable. Easy access, no lines, a must see.

  • Shinagawa Aquarium

    Tokyo Shinagawa-ku Katsushima 3-2-1 Shinagawa ward park
    This is an “ocean and river” themed aquarium deeply tied to Shinagawa City, located in “Shinagawa Kumin Park” in Shinagawa City, Tokyo. The aquarium exhibits familiar fish and underwater creatures in a tank reproducing the nature along the stream of the rivers that flow into Tokyo Bay, the tidal flats and the sea of Tokyo Bay. In a tunnel tank with a total length of 22 meters, you can enjoy “a walk” in the ocean surrounded by 900 fish. Don't miss the performances at the stadium, including a comical sea lion show and a powerful dolphin show. The nearest station is Omorikaigan Station.

The setting of countless iconic movie scenes and the inspiration for songs, poetry, and literature worldwide, Tokyo barely requires an introduction. It’s hard for the kaleidoscopic neon lights, wacky pop culture, and some of the world’s tallest structures not to instill excitement in any first-time visitor to Tokyo, whether you’re in the very center of the hustle and bustle in Shinjuku or Shibuya or looking in from the quieter suburbs.
