Tips for you
Place itself is quite small and not many fish but dolphin show was awesome! Must see the last show at 9pm, the special night show
This is a small aquarium. It essentially appears to be a part of the Sinagawa Prince hotel. However, I was surprised at the variety of sea creatures on display. Some of the reef tanks were particularly nice and well stocked with what appeared to be happy, healthy fish. The jewel of the aquarium is a larger tank with a tunnel through which visitors may walk or sit and admire the black tip reef sharks, stingrays, dwarf sawfish and even the manta ray. The tunnel offers an up-close view of these fascinating fishes and the optical quality of the acrylic is very good. I was able to admire the teeth on the black tip sharks as they swam literally inches away from me. There were, I believe, emperor penguins and even a sea lion (which I think was actually a harbor seal) on display. The facility was clean and appeared well maintained. However, I was struck by just how small the tanks were. The largest tank was barely large enough for the manta ray and other large fish. The seal had a very, very small and spartan area in which to play and just kept swimming around and around in the same pattern over and over again. The poor thing must be so bored. One of the penguins appeared to be in distress as it faced the wall and pecked at it. There are dolphin and sea lion shows offered but my visit was later in the evening and I missed them. Overall, I was happy to get up close to some amazing creatures. But I was a little saddened by the small tanks in which they were kept.
