Sumida Aquarium has been bringing aquatic wonders to the Tokyo Skytree area since 2012. The aquarium is a two-floor housing complex for over 10,000 animals. With its artificial seawater system, the aquarium also reduces CO2 emissions in ways that most other aquariums do not. The aquarium centerpiece--a 350,000-liter tank--is the largest of its kind in Japan and is home to penguins and fur seals.
The aquarium lies in the West Zone of Tokyo Skytree Town on the 5th and 6th floors. Instead of following lines or pre-chosen routes, guests are instead free to find their own way through the aquarium and enjoy the aquatic animals from many angles. There are also many seating areas scattered throughout the aquarium to enhance watching experiences and allow visitors to take a break while they wander.
As of 2020, the Sumida Aquarium has also added a jellyfish exhibition area. Watch jellyfish float beneath you in a surreal alien landscape from the viewing platform. More than 500 moon jellyfish are illuminated in this area and create a one-of-a-kind view.
The gift shop is where you can find all kinds of merchandise and stuffed animals of your favorite aquarium inhabitants. Visit the café and restaurant for a snack or a meal, and be impressed by their themed foods.
