Across the water from Tokyo Disneyland, the Tokyo Sea Life Park provides educational fun for the whole family. This well-designed aquarium features numerous habitats that mimic bodies of water from around the world, like the Caribbean Sea, Indian Ocean, Atlantic Ocean and Tokyo's very own Tokyo Bay. Here you can find a variety of fish from those regions, including Tokyo's famous bluefin tuna. Travelers will also run into penguins during their visit, puffins and turtles, to name a few. There's also a petting area where patrons can get up close and personal and touch sting rays and bamboo sharks. 

Travelers found the aquarium to be informative and were impressed with the variety of sea life housed here. Travelers loved the penguin exhibit as well as the touching station and recommended a visit if you have kids in tow or are staying near Disneyland and looking to pass some time. The views of Tokyo Bay, which surround the aquarium, were a nice bonus for visiting travelers (the entrance to the Sea Life Park is a large glass dome situated on the edge of the water). 

The Tokyo Sea Life Park is open from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. with last admission at 4 p.m. It is also closed on Wednesdays. Admission costs 700 yen (about $6) for adults and 250 yen (around $2) for kids. Located in Kasai Rinkai Park, the aquarium is only a five-minute walk from the JR Kasai Rinkai Koen metro station. For more details, check out the Tokyo Sea Life Park's website.
