Sumida Aquarium has been bringing aquatic wonders to the Tokyo Skytree area since 2012. The aquarium is a two-floor housing complex for over 10,000 animals. With its artificial seawater system, the aquarium also reduces CO2 emissions in ways that most other aquariums do not. The aquarium centerpiece--a 350,000-liter tank--is the largest of its kind in Japan and is home to penguins and fur seals.
The aquarium lies in the West Zone of Tokyo Skytree Town on the 5th and 6th floors. Instead of following lines or pre-chosen routes, guests are instead free to find their own way through the aquarium and enjoy the aquatic animals from many angles. There are also many seating areas scattered throughout the aquarium to enhance watching experiences and allow visitors to take a break while they wander.
As of 2020, the Sumida Aquarium has also added a jellyfish exhibition area. Watch jellyfish float beneath you in a surreal alien landscape from the viewing platform. More than 500 moon jellyfish are illuminated in this area and create a one-of-a-kind view.
The gift shop is where you can find all kinds of merchandise and stuffed animals of your favorite aquarium inhabitants. Visit the café and restaurant for a snack or a meal, and be impressed by their themed foods.

The Asakusa Culture Tourist Information Center (浅草文化観光センター, Asakusa bunka kankō sentā) is an eight story building designed by Kengo Kuma. The top floor contains a free observation deck and a cafe with views onto Sensoji temple and the Nakamise shopping street.
Senso-ji Temple (浅草寺, Sensōji) is a popular spot for omikuji, or fortunes. These auspicious sheets are offered in a multitude of languages, enticing both Japanese and foreigners alike to see how their luck plays out. If the number you draw is less than lucky, don’t worry – simply tie up the offending fortune on the nearby wires and allow your bad karma to be spirited away. The temple also shares its grounds with the Asakusa Shrine, dedicated to the three men credited with the temple’s founding. Considered one of the oldest original buildings in Tokyo, the shrine plays host to the exuberant Sanja Matsuri every May. Another popular building (and photo spot) is the five-story pagoda A number of other festivals take place at Senso-ji throughout the year. The Kinryu-no-mai (Dragon Dance) can be enjoyed on March 18th and October 18th, when a large golden dragon on poles is paraded through the streets. Visitors on April 14th can witness the Sagi-no-mai (White Heron Dance), which features a parade of participants in both Heian-era outfits and heron costumes. In late autumn, the temple’s atmosphere grows even more exuberant during its end of the year rake fairs. Buyers come to purchase one of the many colorfully adorned tools in the hopes of raking in good fortune in the coming year. It is arguably one of the most popular tourist destinations in the city, Senso-ji Temple – also known as Asakusa Kannon – can trace its roots back to the early 600s. In 628, two fishermen on the nearby Sumida River repeatedly brought up a golden statue of the Buddhist goddess of mercy along with their usual catch. Finally deciding not to throw the statue back to the depths of the river once more, they instead brought it to their village headman, who convinced them to build a temple in its honor. Senso-ji Temple was finished in the year 645 and quickly became a pilgrimage site. Its popularity endured over the centuries and even continues in the present day, with most visitors making this one of their first stops in Tokyo. The road leading up to the temple, known as the Nakamise-dori or “street of inner shops”, peddles everything from lacquered chopsticks and ukiyo-e prints to cheap keychains and colorful trinkets. Cake-like ningyoyaki¸sweet treats that are served hot off the iron grill, are a popular purchase, as are warming cups of amazake in the winter months.
