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.

家が近いのにも関わらずなかなか行けなくやっと行けました。入口の香りも良く見やすい展示で良く魚を観察できました！巨大水槽の前で飲み物を飲みながらゆっくりし ペンギンの泳ぎに癒されて思わず年パスを帰りに買ってしまいました♪♪疲れたときにフラッと癒されに行きたいと思います☆ more »Even though the house was close, I couldn't get there. I was able to observe the fish well in the exhibition that the smell of the entrance is good and easy to see! I want to go to be healed when I am tired because I♪♪ was healed by the swimming of the penguin slowly while drinking a drink in front of a huge water tank and bought the year pass on the way home involuntarily.
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!
