Aqua Park Shinagawa is an aquarium located in the city center a few minutes walk from Japan Railway Shinagawa Station. Visitors will always be entertained with crafted displays that take advantage of the limited site and seasonal events. You will be amazed at the production of light and sound that you don’t think of as an aquarium.
In the hall, you can enjoy exhibitions with different concepts such as the photogenic and colorful jellyfish tank “Jellyfish Rumble” and “Wonder Tube” where you can see the scenery as if you are walking in the sea.
Since it is open until around 22:00 in the daytime, you can enjoy sightseeing at the end of work. Entertainment events and exhibitions that produce effects using light, sound, and images that do not fit within the aquarium frame are attractive.
There are also playground equipment such as a merry-go-round where small children can ride and a thrilling screaming machine. There are plenty of exhibits that can only be seen here, such as dynamic water and light shows and fantastic and beautiful scenery. From a date to going out with a small child, it can be said that it is an aquarium where you can enjoy any scene.
A water park called Jellyfish Rumble and Wonder Tube is a representative spot for Aqua Park Shinagawa. You can enjoy fantastic and beautiful scenery where photos are often posted on SNS. Jellyfish Rumble is a space where the production of light is impressive. The transparent jellyfish illuminated by the light and shining in vivid colors will be unintentionally caught.
Wonder Tube is an underwater tunnel with a total length of 20 meters into which natural light from the ceiling is inserted. You can walk in the tunnel made of water tank from right to left, just like walking in the sea. Even weddings surrounded by fish may be performed.
The magical ground that extends from near the entrance of Aqua Park Shinagawa to the middle of the building has three areas where you can feel unusual. In the atrium area “Colors” that combines an aquarium and art, projection mapping and lighting are gorgeous. The theme of the video and the view of the world change from season to season, so you can enjoy it freshly, no matter how many times you visit.
“The Stadium” is a place where you can enjoy a spectacular show even in an aquarium. A round pool that can be viewed from various angles 360 degrees is the stage. Reserve seats early as seats will fill up 30 minutes before the show starts.
The dolphin show is held 7 to 9 times a day, and you can enjoy different productions for daytime and nighttime. Watch the dynamic performances of the dolphins close up as the curtain of water pours down from the ceiling. Please note that there are splashing presents from dolphins in the front row.
The Aqua Park Shinagawa is an aquarium in the Shinagawa Prince Hotel of approximately 2 minutes on foot from Shinagawa Station in the downtown area. Even in the aquarium in the hotel, the scale is quite good.
Inside of a hall is divided into “GROUND FLOOR” of the first floor, and “UPPER FLOOR” of the second floor, and there are the 11 areas. The water tank where the creature of various seas lives on a natural figure, the attraction, the stand, the shop, etc. are located in each area.
It is a park entrance that is located at the place right after passing the first-floor door. Here, the group of fish which shines with rainbow color, and the beautiful image projected on the tank meet people who visit.
The magical ground is waiting for you at the point which followed the park entrance. Three areas of the “Interactive Area”, the “Atrium Area”, the “Attraction Area” invite coming people to the non-everyday world.
The Attraction Area is an area like a little amusement park. Here, you can enjoy two kinds of attractions of the merry-go-round of healing the “Dolphin Party” being wrapped in the light of LED and music, and the huge pirate ship of the “Boat of Pirates” which can experience the weightless world.
“The jellyfish rumble” is the area of the popular jellyfish. The exhibition of the jellyfish of the Aqua Park Shinagawa is very beautiful, and attracts attention.
The jellyfish drifting flickeringly is lighted up in a color to change every time and season and brings on a fantastic atmosphere. Sound is also added there and it becomes healing space.
Romantic underwater tunnel “Wonder tube.” This area is a popular area in the Aqua Park Shinagawa. Sunshine comes in through a skylight and it is begun to illuminate the tunnel which is about 20 meters in length.
The featured area “The Stadium” of the Aqua Park Shinagawa. This is area with the large-sized circular pool of 25 meters in diameter where the dynamic dolphin show is performed every day. It is little different from the normal dolphin show.
It is romantic and, by direction such as a curtain of water projecting various designs or the illumination, makes a dolphin show worth seeing. Since a theme changes also by time zones, such as a season and day and night, whenever it may visit, fresh surprise and impression are given.
