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The aquarium is a little outdated and some of the enclosures where too small for the animals that it was hard not to feel sorry for them, particularly the sharks.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!

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.
