I loved this aquarium, while it was far from the biggest aquarium, its exhibits were outstanding. Went on a Tuesday afternoon, it was quite with not many children about. Those that were there, were well behaved and quite. Which is rare in itself. Great penguin...More

It’s a great aquarium to visit in the Tokyo area. Their main attraction was the penguins. They also have a jellyfish lab and you can see the lifespan of a jellyfish.

The Sumida Aquarium is not very large one, but organized with style and thoughtfulness. The most interesting features: aquariums with jellyfishes where you can observe how they grow (from several days to several weeks), and the area of penguins (main attraction) where these funny fellows...More

I initially dragged my feet here but was pleasantly surprised! There are some areas that are part art installation, and the open area with the penguins was a real surprise and treat. Fun for families, whether with kids or old folks. If only it were...More

We visited sumida aquarium just about half an hour before final entry, where it was very quiet allowing us to really appreciate the impressive tanks they had. While sumida is small, there's still plenty to see in a very stylish aquarium with fantastic waterscaping. It's...More
