As a frequent traveler to Tokyo, I usually stayed in Shibuya. But for the first time ever, I wanted to do something different so I chose staying in Shinagawa Prince Hotel, where the Aquarium is attached to this huge hotel. I was surprised, though, the Aquarium is awesome. The Dolphin Show was load of fun. We just followed the music... More

I'm sceptical of captivity to say the least. Going here was an eye opener. Yes they have done a reasonable job with the way they educate people, but the tanks that hold the dolphins are far too small and they show signs of rake markings and disease. Dolphins should not be in captivity, I've learned that they are taken from... More

Aquarium is small but nice, had one ride, some cool jelly fish exhibits. Dolphin show excellant they had at least 3 different kinds. Splash zone in... More

It looks small from the outside but it is really a huge aquarium. They have a sea lion show and dolphin show and it is fun to watch, but if you don't like seeing dolphins in tanks then don't watch it. It also features a sand tiger shark at the very end, two of them in fact. It shows big... More

They runs three shows: dolphine, seal and sea lion. This was my 3yr daughter's first time watching marine shows, and she was absolutely excited. The show was nothing special; it was just running through the schedule. Some of the tanks were definately too small! Not sure if the animals are happy, but at least they keep the environment clean.

Thank helhng
