This is a pretty good aquarium. Not too pricey, and there's a pretty good selection of jelly fish (boyfriend's favorite animal, so this was a big plus for us). The wall of fish is also pretty cool, reminded me of Finding Dory. A good date place, too! Plus the location is super convenient.

Our trip to Enoshima was during a tropical storm. We decided to go to the aquarium and this was a great decision. Entrance fee was 2,100 yen on site however you can save a few yen if you go to 7-11 and get your tickets. Dolphin show: Captivating! Hard not to enjoy the symmetry between trainer and cetaceans. It was... More

The aquarium is a great attraction in Enoshima, offers a welcome break out of the heat during summer. The highlight for my kids here is the Dolphin Show. Don't sit on the first or second row if you don't want to get wet. I have visited this place twice in the past 18 months. The food options are limited inside... More

You can see different kinds of sea creature inside, for example jelly fish , sharks etc . And it's quite beautiful . However, you will need to spend quite a lot time inside which is not good because you only got limited time for visting the enoshima Island. And the ticket is pretty expensive. You can visit it if you... More

This aquarium is probably one of the best places I've ever visited in Japan. There are so many shows you could enjoy, fishes, dolphins, turtles and our favorite; jellyfish! Make sure to check the schedule If you want to watch the dolphin show, because it's really crowded and difficult to find good spot for watching. If you live outside Kanagawa... More

Enoshima Aquarium is one of the best aquariums in Japan I've ever visited. Located near the beach, Enoshima Aquarium is the perfect place, not only to see the collection in the aquarium, but the beach view is also a plus point why you should go to this place as one of your destinations. I particularly love the jellyfish collection. Normally,... More

I am an American living in Japan for the next three years. I found this aquarium to be really magical. Employees very kind, and felt facility was very clean. I have visited aquariums all over America, and used to live within miles of Seaworld San Diego... I have to say this aquarium was mind blowing. I saw fish I had... More

Having worked in the aquarium industry myself I can highly recommend you come here. It is quite small, but has great exhibits. I have been to 4 aquariums in Japan and this would rate second behind Hakeijima sea paradise. Is better than Osaka and Nagoya aquariums. Depends what you like though.
