“Great Aquarium”
Reviewed October 31, 2012

although this aquarium is a little off the beaten track, it is well worth a visit. It has a very impressive selection of fish, all set in an enormous building over six floors. Definitely recommended

“Adventurous & relaxing”
Reviewed October 30, 2012

All the species there are special. Penguin, Sea lions, Octopus, shark, whale...and lots more. There is also a sightseeing ship tour. You must get a ride on it.

“giant aquarium.”
Reviewed October 29, 2012

this should be called an observation deck built around a giant aqarium. bec the aquarium covers around 5 stories high, with a section separated by just nets (the whale shark and the sting rays). Have not seen this many variety of sting rays. great for kids.
for an added attraction, take the water ferry to cross the ocean going to/from universal city station (universal studios).

“Kids love the aquarium”
Reviewed October 27, 2012

A good aquarium which allows good views of the animals. Although all commentary was in Japanese we enjoyed the feeding sessions and entrance fees were reasonable. I would recommend this Aquarium and certainly worth a visit if you have kids.
