What Is Shinagawa's Maxell Aqua Park?

In 2005, it was first opened as Epson Shinagawa Aqua Stadium.
As an indoor facility, it can be enjoyed regardless of rain or shine, sun or snow.
The Park is a theme park comprised of an aquarium with more than 350 different species of 20,000 sea creatures, as well as other indoor attractions.
The Park’s most prominent attraction is the aquarium’s use of Japan’s latest cutting-edge technology.
With unique special effects and brilliantly creative performances, you can definitely have an out-of-this-world experience right here in Tokyo.

Since its renovation in July 2015, Aqua Park Shinagawa is an aquarium that has undertaken a variety of initiatives based on the concept of "the fusion of sound, light, and images with living creatures".
The dolphin show is one of the most popular attractions at Aqua Park Shinagawa, and can be enjoyed throughout the year as the content changes with the seasons in Japan.

The “Coral Café Bar” is a fashionable projection mapping bar, exceptionally well-known even in Tokyo.
In addition, the first floor also boasts the “Touch Panel Aquarium”; a wall on which sea creatures appear in response to your touch, as well as the “Jellyfish Rumble” with its mysterious glowing jellyfish.
