Fodor's Review

This aquarium has some 750 kinds of sea creatures on display, plus sea lion performances four times a day (except when it rains). An English-language pamphlet is available, and most of the exhibits have some English explanation. If you get tired of the sea life, head to the Sunshine Starlight Dome planetarium, where you can see 400,000 stars. And if that still isn't enough to keep you occupied, try the 60th-floor observatory for great views of the city. To get here, take the JR Yamanote Line to Ikebukuro Station (Exit 35) and walk about eight minutes west to the Sunshine City complex. You can also take the Yuraku-cho subway to Higashi-Ikebukuro Station (Exit 2); Sunshine City and the aquarium are about a three-minute walk north.
