We went here for a family trip. The walk passed the park was scenic and lovely. We managed to catch Dolphins show. My girl enjoyed the show. The view will be nicer if we managed to get the seats near the tank. Unfortunately, by the time we arrived, it's been filled up. After the show, we lingered for a while... More

It's a smal aquarium with lot of intresting smal and big fishes and as special Dolphins and Sharks. On several times in the day are also dolphin Shows. Also special is the Water tube where you can walk in and around you, you can see the fish. Come in and enjoy....

The aquarium is small but fun for both adults and kids. A very nice park outside of the aquarium. Star attraction is the dolphins, penguins and seal. Dolphin shows is at 11.00am and 3pm (If I am not mistaken). Many types of fishes available for viewing and love the tunnel where you could see turtle and stingrays swimming along over... More

It is located in a nice park and it is possible to leave and re-enter the aquarium as much as you like once you have bought a ticket. The place is a little small, you can see and do everything within an hour and a half. The dolphin and sea lion shows were a little underwhelming, but the underwater show... More

When I first walked in I was very impressed, they had nice big aquariums for the various fish which was a nice change from the other aquariums I have seen around Japan. Beautifully presented, even had a charmingly cute duck in one of them with the happy swimming turtles in the enclosure. The fish seemed to be in very good... More

The aquarium is a little outdated and some of the enclosures where too small for the animals that it was hard not to feel sorry for them, particularly the sharks. However the dolphin show was enjoyable and the highlight of the aquarium. Also, the nearby dolphin restaurant served decent food.

Believe it or not: the Shinagawa Aquarium is part of the vast Prince hotel in Shinagawa, very close to Shinagawa station (about a 3 minute walk). The hotel also has its own cinemas and bowling alleys. Compared to other aquariums in Tokyo this one is very small. But then again: it is part of a hotel and it is in... More

It was Christmas when we visited the place. If you choose between Dolphins and Sea lions, I would recommend dolphins. The show is much fun and joy! I would not consider low rows because of splashes of water. At the end you can get closer and take pictures with dolphins. The sea lion show is less entertaining, but kids love... More

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!
