The aquarium is a great attraction in Enoshima, offers a welcome break out of the heat during summer. The highlight for my kids here is the Dolphin Show. Don't sit on the first or second row if you don't want to get wet. I have visited this place twice in the past 18 months. The food options are limited inside... More

You can see different kinds of sea creature inside, for example jelly fish , sharks etc . And it's quite beautiful . However, you will need to spend quite a lot time inside which is not good because you only got limited time for visting the enoshima Island. And the ticket is pretty expensive. You can visit it if you... More

This aquarium is probably one of the best places I've ever visited in Japan. There are so many shows you could enjoy, fishes, dolphins, turtles and our favorite; jellyfish! Make sure to check the schedule If you want to watch the dolphin show, because it's really crowded and difficult to find good spot for watching. If you live outside Kanagawa... More

Enoshima Aquarium is one of the best aquariums in Japan I've ever visited. Located near the beach, Enoshima Aquarium is the perfect place, not only to see the collection in the aquarium, but the beach view is also a plus point why you should go to this place as one of your destinations. I particularly love the jellyfish collection. Normally,... More

I am an American living in Japan for the next three years. I found this aquarium to be really magical. Employees very kind, and felt facility was very clean. I have visited aquariums all over America, and used to live within miles of Seaworld San Diego... I have to say this aquarium was mind blowing. I saw fish I had... More

Having worked in the aquarium industry myself I can highly recommend you come here. It is quite small, but has great exhibits. I have been to 4 aquariums in Japan and this would rate second behind Hakeijima sea paradise. Is better than Osaka and Nagoya aquariums. Depends what you like though.

This was a small aquarium from what iv been to in the states, but it was not bad. There was interesting fish and other sea life that I have never seen before. There is a small Sea Lion and Dolphin show as well. I enjoyed it.

Six Highlights 1. Large tank supposedly has over 90 kinds of fish and is two stories tall. What I like most in it is the school of sardines that are mesmerizing in their constant morphing into different shapes. The tank also has large manta rays that you can experience swimming over your head in the part of the tank that... More
