The 3 Best Aquarium in central Tokyo

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)    

1, 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.

3, Aqua park Shinagawa in SHINAGAWA

About 2min walk from Shinagawa station (Takanawa-Exit side),
it is located in “Prince Hotel Shinagawa“.

Not only convenient location, this aquarium hold Dolphin shows at big indoor round pool!
Dolphin’s clever move is wonderful, lighting of show is also worth to see.

Opening hour is longer than others – night aquarium might be good idea as special travel memory!
