InformationInformation

Sunshine Aquarium is Japan's first rooftop aquarium. Here, visitors can gain an extraordinary experience in an atmosphere surrounded by water and vegetation based on the concept of "an oasis in the sky". In addition to the ocean sunfish and sea otters, the whole new kind of sea lions performance that can be seen from up close is also popular.
