3.4
#4 of 11 in Zoos & Aquariums in Tokyo
At Sumida Aquarium, see marine life up close in an ingeniously designed modern aquarium housing over 10,000 sea creatures. Part of a shopping and entertainment complex, the aquarium features a research laboratory, as well as tanks representing the habitats around Tokyo Bay. As you enter, notice how no visible support obscures your view through the tanks' thick, clear glass, enabling you to observe animals from any angle. Examine and photograph a wide range of species, including penguins, seals, jellyfish, and sharks. Note that lines can get rather long to enter.

  • Immaculate, the penguins didn't smell at ALL (how??? Do they achieve that? Amazing), a remarkable variety of jellyfish, and Very Aesthetically pleasing. Lost a star because you can always have more fish, I guess (we were there for maybe an hour and a half - it's by no means a large aquarium), but probably the best feature of Skytree Town.
  • Nice place to spend half a day! Not the most impressive aquarium but quite well maintained. Cute Penguins!
