Fairly new and small aquarium located in Sunshine City Plaza in Ikebukuro.
The sea lion enclosure is interesting as they swim about in clear tubes above the walking visitors. I guess it is an alternative view .

Do go on weekdays and early as it can get fairly crowded on the weekends.

The aquarium is very new and though not huge is very nice. My 3 year old son enjoyed the penguin feeding. We were able to get very close to the penguins. He also enjoyed the sea lion show, again we were very close. The penguin and sea lion area is unique as it is on a city roof top, but very well done. The indoor aquarium is great, several sharks (none are too big), lots of sting rays and plenty of fish. The shows and feeding times were short, about 10m each, which is good for young kids. There was also a nice looking cafe, although we didnt go in. Right in the middle of a shopping mall, so plenty to do when you finish. About 2 hours should get it done!

Great place, great variety, pretty busy as expected. Got to see the sea lion feeding and the water show, both were cool. Would be a great family place.
