EPSON Shinagawa Aqua Stadium

This aquarium is a couple of minute walk from the Takanawa exit of Shinagawa station and located within the Shinagawa Price Hotel complex.

The aquarium is rather small, but good size for little kids to walk around. A variety of colorful fish will entertain your eyes. Their tropical fish submarine tunnel is impressive. Above all, the well air-conditioned aquarium is very nice and refreshing especially during summer in Japan. :-) You can also see the feeding of fish and penguins.

The aquarium has shows of dolphins and sea lions. Both shows are nice and entertaining. At the dolphin show, they splash water at the audience by the dolphines and also by the trainers. You will get wet if you sit in front, meaning soaking wet! You can buy a poncho to protect yourself for 100 yen or sit in the back if you don't want to get wet. In either way, you might want to go in 15-20 minutes prior to the show in order to get a good seat. Seats are taken very quickly.
