My daughter and I like Aquarium so always try to go aquarium whenever we travel. If your kids like them too, these three is my recommendation in central Tokyo. (All three are indoor and convenient to go by train)
Sunshine Aquarium in Ikebukuro
My favorite aquarium! Penguins fly in the sky, big tank make you think you are deep in the ocean, cute seals are swimming with elegance,,, not so big but the attractive way of showing fish and water-animals would make you and your kids very happy.
It is on the roof top of big commercial building, Sunshine city in Ikebukuro area. Access is very good, about 5 min walk from ”Higashi-Ikebukuro” station of Yurakucho Line, walking through underground walkway to large shopping building.
Sunshine city has many shops, restaurants, amusement park like NAMJATOWN, Planetarium by Konica Minolta, observatory that you can try VR (Virtual Reality), etc… so family can enjoy whole day.
I have annual pass of this aquarium so my daughter and I often spend a day when the wether is not good to be out.
