My cousin took us to Sumida Aquarium last week. It was awesome. For a small aquarium, it had as much versatility as some much larger aquariums I've been to around the world. There were goldfish from around the world, penguins and varieties and stages of...More

Loved this aquarium, even though it's small! If you love penguins I highly recommend visiting! The only problem I had was the Seal inclosure. There were three seals and the space these guys had was just not enough. I'm sure there's room for extension or...More
