The facility is a bit run down and is in need of upgrades. The aquarium was okay but it was the dolphin exhibit that broke my heart. The dolphins appear to be in poor condition with a bunch of markings on their bodies. We watched...More

First thing first, this aquarium is interesting, but it’s not the state-of-art kind of aquarium or theme park. The displays on endemic fishes are interesting. The aquarium staff are so into Halloween that some of the tanks have spooky decorations with fishes swim around them...More

The dolphin show was the highlight for me. Price is a little steep for entry compared to other aquariums but that's probably due to its later opening hours than other aquariums. Good variety of fish to see. Caught all the feeding times of seals penguins....More

The dolphin show was fun to watch ... all narration was in Japanese, as it should be, but the show transcends language ... a good time and great for kids.

This aquarium caters to locals, but is quite a nice experience, especially for kids. The live shows are worth the price of admission. The park it is located in is also quite beautiful and a nice walk before or after the aquarium. It's a great...More

Where to stay between Disney Sea and Shinagawa Aquarium? (3 Replies)
Hello. Need help in planning on where to stay for two nights. We are taking our toddler to Disney Sea and Shinagawa Aquarium to see the dolphins before taking the train to Hakuba. Which area should we stay to minimize moving around? Please advise. Thanks!

Maihama for Disneyland, Shinagawa for Shinagawa Aquarium (Hakkeijima Sea Paradise in southern Yokohama should be much better though). Train for Hakuba (if it's Ltd Exp Azusa) leaves usually from Shinjuku. So stay in one of these places, or Tamachi, Hamamatsucho, Shinbashi, Shiodome, Ginza, and Otemachi/Marunouchi/Yaesu.
