After watching a movie at the Prince Hotels Cinema, decided to check out the aquarium. It was 1950 Yen per person (or close to that, I can't remember the exact total - but ~$20 USD). The showcase of the aquarium was the tunnel with the rays. I could have spent 30 minutes looking at all of the rays and the... More

The aquarium is a bit smaller than others but still nice to visit. Check out its water tunnel with huge sword fish!

I went with two nine year olds. We missed all but the last 5 minutes of the dolphin show, had we known, we might have planned our time differently and been able to see more. However, the sealion show was lots of fun! It was in Japanese, but that didn't matter and the sealions seemed to be having as much... More

A lovely little aquarium by US standards and somewhat dated. It still did have some nice bits and the animals did seem well cared for.

The dolphin show and sealion show was interesting. It is the perfect place for families,especially those with little kids. The description of the animals in the tanks are all in japanese(the names of the animals have english) and the shows are all hosted in japanese.I don't know how the fishes feel but I think the tank is quite crowded for...

My family vacationing in Tokyo for spring break. Unfortunately we had downpours so venturing outside was not practical. Fortunately we were staying at the Shinagawa Prince Hotel, which has a entertainment center in the complex. The aquarium is part of the entertainment center. IN fact, hotel guest receive a small discount at the aquarium. Compared to other aquariums like Long... More

As a Scuba Diver I'm not a big friend of aquariums in general but I have to recognize that this establishment didn't make me feel as bad as others did as at least everything was clean, although in my opinion the tanks weren't big enough, the fish and all the animals kept here look healthy and in good shape.

Though a bit on the small side, it does have a large dolphin pool show that is good fun for kids and adults alike! Separately, they have a sealion show in another smaller pool. Additionally, they have penguins, a very cool aqua tunnel showcasing a variety of sharks and ray, huge Hokkaido crabs and other beautiful fish. My 2 year... More

The aquarium is a few stops from Shinagawa Station and not centrally located but it's easy enough to get to. The place is showing it's age and, though not small, it's not extensive either. I went with a friend on a Monday and had a good time having a leisurely stroll through the exhibits. If you have a day to... More
