Tokyo Sea Life Park aquarium
Tokyo Sea Life Park aquarium

A world-class aquarium near Tokyo Disney Resort

Japan is famous for its fish, so it's not surprising that the country also boasts several world-class aquariums. You'll find one of the best in the capital city—Tokyo Sea Life Park—located a short distance from Tokyo Disney Resort . The aquarium sees a huge number of visitors every year.

Quick Facts

The aquarium's habitats mimic bodies of water from the Caribbean Sea, Indian Ocean, Atlantic Ocean and elsewhere

Last admission is at 4 p.m., so plan to get there early

How to Get There

The aquarium is accessible by train.

The closest subway station is Kasai-Rinkai-Koen on the Keiyo Line.

Penguins, tuna and more

The aquarium has a number of unmissable attractions within its dome-shaped building. The penguin enclosure, one of the country's largest, houses three different types of penguins. In the large, donut-shaped tank are various types of tuna, which visitors can view from a number of angles. There are also large displays of kelp and seabirds, and a bird sanctuary next to the aquarium.

Personal and hands-on

Hands-on experiences await at the touch pool, and there are regular feeding times for the tuna and the penguins. In 2012, the aquarium hit the headlines when one of the penguins escaped and wasn't recaptured again for almost three months. The escaped penguin was able to thrive within Tokyo Bay until the keeper managed to recapture him.
