Shinagawa Aquarium is one of the most popular local ones (always on tv dramas for dates) and makes a perfect rainy day escape. There’s the World of Jellyfish, a Shark Hall, a Seal House and a Tokyo Bay river, as well as your usual aquarium sights. There are a series of shows that take place throughout certain days including feeding, projection mapping and underwater shows – follow the colour-coded guide here to check what is on when you visit. On Saturdays you can also take a backstage tour to see the working side of the aquarium but this is based on a first-come first-served basis so if you’re not in the first 15 you won’t get to join.
