A Visit to the Sumida Aquarium

A beautiful display of sea life definitely worth seeing

By Andre Moreira    - 1 min read

Located at the Tokyo Skytree complex (opened in May 2012 to the public), the Sumida Aquarium is one of its main attractions, housing more than 10,000 sea creatures. This two-floor beautifully designed modern aquarium features a 350,000 liter tank with dozens of penguins and fur seals, a gorgeous jellyfish display and research laboratory, tanks with a variety of living beings, from the tiniest little fish to huge sharks, and from gender-changing creatures to mysterious worm-like beings, and much more. It's sure to be a fascinating visit.

Born in the Portuguese countryside in 1990, I've been living in Japan since 2012. After finishing my Computer Engineering University Course in Lisbon, Portugal, I decided to study Japanese in Tokyo, with the purpose of continuing my studies there. After one year of studying of the language, I entered a Japanese Professional College where I finished my study in 2015. I am now working in a videogame Japanese company as Motion Designer. I also write in my blog about Japan. My goal is to introduce Japan to anyone who is interested in the culture, the language, the music, the anime, the food, and so on. And that's what you can find there: everything! Plus, my experience here as a Portuguese expat.
