Sea lions perform on dry land and kept in VERY shallow water in between performances. One in 2/3 inches of water. Showing signs of distress especially in 25 degree heat.

It is an interisting idea, visiting an aquarium in the middle of Tokyo somewhere on the 9th floor. We went on saturdayafternoon, so it was really crowdy. The tanks are nice, outside basins are very small. I would not recomend to go on a weekendday.
