Enoshima Aquarium新江ノ島水族館(休業中)


Nicknamed the “Enosui” by locals, this aquarium is located inside Shonan Kaigan Park. The aquarium’s beautiful exhibits, designed to evoke a wondrous undersea world, are quite popular. The spherical “Jellyfish Planet” aquarium houses 14 varieties of jellyfish lit up with beautiful lighting. Once every hour, the world’s first 3D projection mapped jellyfish show is held throughout the entire floor. Enoshima Aquarium is filled with entertainment. A school of some 8,000 Japanese sardines can be seen swimming in a giant aquarium replicating the environment of Sagami Bay. An edutainment facility, another exhibit at the aquarium maps ocean currents and presents the various sea life which visits the area seasonally.

Review of Enoshima Aquarium

TripAdvisor Traveler Rating
Reviewed:2019/09/25 Great whole day experience!
It’s crowed! Lots of families and students coming over and it’s great! The aquarium layout is so beautiful, made with artistic sensibilities and to be a reachable display to everyone. We made it out...
Reviewed:2019/09/08 Pretty Aquarium
Its a very good place to relax, the lighting makes it easier for me to indulge in the ocean/sea life as I look into the tanks filled with different sea-lifes. I spend quite a lot of time in there...
Reviewed:2019/08/12 The place WAS spectacularly good before they started those shows every 30 minutes.
But let me explain it systematically, please.
First of all, Enoshima aquarium is one of the best in Japan. It is large, it is rich, it is well designed and located on the beach. The best combination...

          Kanagawa Areas


          Kanagawa prefecture acts as an extension of the Tokyo metropolis that spills over into coastal towns, most notably Yokohama city, heavily populated and known for its Chinatown and seaside attractions. Just the right distance for a day trip out of Tokyo, Kanagawa is home to some of Tokyo’s most accessible beaches, including around Kamakura, best known for its Big Buddha. Visitors can also travel a little farther afield for a weekend at Hakone onsen town.
