Must Sees

Penguins are popular with the young and old because they're so adorable. What is the most unique about Sunshine Aquarium is that they have penguins in the open tank on the rooftop of the building. In that way, you can watch penguins swimming in the lit water.
They look as if they are flying in the sky of Tokyo!
They have several kinds of jellyfish. They are very beautiful and glow in the dark. You'll have so much fun watching them.
You can also meet various fishes. The tank is colorful because of the fish and the coral reef.
They offer some shows which are exciting to watch. The staff gives a performance with fish. The trained sea lions also have a show time.


If you come to Ikebukuro and wish to have a relaxing time, just head to Sunshine Aquarium and enjoy watching adorable, beautiful sea life in the middle of Tokyo!
I love traveling and eating. My favorites are everything matcha and cheesecakes.
