すみだ水族館 空飛ぶペンギン1 11月

Sumida Aquarium is located in Solamachi of Tokyo Skytree Town.

It used to be a small, featureless aquarium that was not very big and did not have a good reputation, but recently it has become a very popular spot for fantastic events that make full use of projection mapping, flying penguins, and the “Edorium,” one of the largest goldfish exhibits in Japan. It has become a very popular spot.

If you visit Tokyo Sky Tree, Sumida Aquarium is definitely worth a visit.



What is Sumida Aquarium, a part of Tokyo Skytree?

The SUMIDA AQUARIUM is located on the 5th and 6th floors of the Tokyo Skytree West Yard, and although the aquarium itself is not very large, couples and families with children can spend a whole day there and enjoy the facilities in the Skytree, including Solamachi.


SUMIDA AQUARIUM is moving from an aquarium for viewing to an aquarium for hands-on events

Projection mapping has already become a regular feature at Tokyo Station and Disneyland in recent years. Like Maxell Aqua Park Shinagawa, we have also adopted this technology.

In addition, the theme of the exhibition is “From an Aquarium to an Experience Aquarium.
The theme is moving from an aquarium for viewing to an aquarium for experiencing. Visitors can see where the animals are kept and listen to explanations from the breeding staff. The aquarium is designed to allow visitors to feel closer to living creatures.


Sumida Aquarium’s popular flying penguins are still ranked No. 1 in popularity.

The penguin zone of the 350-ton tank, one of the largest in Japan in terms of water volume, is still the most popular.

The penguins swim at breakneck speed at the same eye level in front of you, and their speed is breathtaking! It is designed so that visitors can see them swimming energetically and walking awkwardly on the ground from above the water as well.

Also, the penguins’ expressions as they are fed and play with each other by their keepers starting at 1:00 p.m. and 4:00 p.m. are as soothing as they can be.

Magellanic penguins had a baby on April 10, 2018, and to celebrate the birth, a baby Happy Penguins,” an event to unveil and celebrate the birth, was also held.

Surrounded by various illuminations, the shimmering jellyfish also look fantastic and make you forget about reality.


”The Edorium” is Japan’s largest 2019 goldfish exhibit zone

The Edorium displays Wakin, Ryukin, Ranchu, and other varieties of goldfish in a fantastic Japanese-inspired décor with goldfish lanterns and Edo-style wind chimes.

Tokyo Goldfish Wonderland 2019, which was held from July 12 (Friday) to October 31 (Thursday), 2019, is a space where visitors can view about 20 varieties of goldfish from various angles and learn about goldfish culture and history, retrofitted with a “nostalgic” theme. The space will be retro-arranged with a “nostalgic” theme. The event held at the “Edorium,” one of the largest goldfish exhibition areas in Japan, was also very popular.

In addition, there are many other exhibits such as a corner for viewing and wearing goldfish in collaboration with art designs such as cutouts of goldfish, exhibits on the theme of “color,” and exhibits where visitors can learn about the history and culture of goldfish.


Hands-on program” to learn about living creatures in depth with the breeding staff

The Experience Program is an event program that is held once or twice a month for a limited period of time where you can enjoy learning about the aquarium and its fish with the aquarium staff.

Other programs include the Fielding Program “Ikimono-tachi no Gohan no Jikan (Time for Lunch)” and the Aqua Academy “Fun and More Familiarity”.
