Tokyo Sea Life Park,
The first aquarium in Japan was opened at Ueno Zoo in 1882 and there are now more than a hundred aquariums in the country. During the period, the facilites and capacity of aquariums have been enlarged and the purposes of display have been changing from just showcasing various fishes to presenting environments surrounding marine creatures.
Tokyo Sea Life Park is not an exception. Its most important aim is reproducing aquatic habitats in Tokyo and in the world. In this light, we installed a huge donut-shaped tank (2,200t), where bluefin tunas swim around freely.
The Seas of the World, Life of the Deep Sea, Life on the Shoreline, the Sea of Tokyo, and Life in Freshwater are some of the exhibit sections. We also collect marine life from the Arctic and Antarctic Oceans.
Fish and invertebrates are not the only life forms that inhabit the sea. At our aquarium, you can see penguins, auks, and puffins, typical sea birds which adapt well to marine habitats.
