Sunshine Aquarium occupies the top three floors of Ikebukuro’s World Import Mart building. Designed to be an ‘oasis in the sky,’ it features raised tanks so that penguins and sea lions appear to fly between the surrounding buildings. The aquarium was refurbished in 2017 and features around 37,000 animals from penguins to pelicans, otters to iguanas. The three floors correspond to the ocean, rivers and lakes, and the outdoor Marine Garden. Each promises a different flavor of education and fun. Sunshine Aquarium offers a compact and convenient place to enjoy sea life from Japan and around the world. The tickets allow re-entry, so you’re free to spend as much time as you like, and have free run of Ikebukuro when it comes to lunch. Booking with Rakuten Travel Experiences gets you an e-ticket to use any time within 180 days of booking. This means you can be flexible with when you visit and skip the lines for tickets on the day.
