Theme Park: Sunshine Aquarium in Tokyo | Information and Reviews

Recommended place this time in Tokyo is Theme Park: Sunshine Aquarium.

The ocean will always be one of the magical places here on earth. Having countless wonders and exploration, no doubt there are so many strange yet fascinating creatures living in there. As for many of us, we get to see some of these only through internet browsing or in the movies. I guess, there is nothing more satisfying than seeing these magical sea creatures up close with our own eyes.

Sharing this experience I had on a winter season to all of you out there. It is time to relax, appreciate the beauty of life.

Welcome to a magnificent discovery of the ocean’s pride.

“Sunshine Aquarium”

A rooftop aquarium? Wow! I’d say it is like a tropical resort area! The aquarium is also advertised in almost every area of Sunshine City so guess what, definitely not a hassle to find. My fascination with sea creatures has finally led me to this place though I have already heard from some of my friends that Sunshine City has a lot to offer.

Indoor Glimpse

“I found Nemo and friends!” lol

“the rainforest area”

The indoor atmosphere is a dimly-lit area brightened by the lights from large tanks that are filled with mostly different sea creatures. It’s really easy to roam around even though the place is a little crowded.

The Underwater Performance

Look at that!!!

These two were so synchronized in motion. Amazing!

I’m overwhelmed while watching this live!
