Epson Aquarium, Shinagawa

The rain interrupted plans my friends and I had made to spend the day in Enoshima today so Yuko and I went to the Epson Aquarium in Shinagawa instead. It was pretty expensive (1,800yen, or ~$18), but seemed a worthwile way to spend a day out of the rain. I love the blue glow of aquariums…I could watch jellyfish float around all day.

Unfortunately for me this aquarium wasn’t big on jellyfish – only a small tank of little ones. Everything else was pretty fascinating though…I guess I’ll just have to indulge myself and see how the other aquariums around here compare.

Beautiful, no?

Neither of us thought we would like the dolphin show very much but we both loved it…and left wondering how to go about becoming dolphin trainers. Haha, well, dear loved ones: would you support a slight change in career paths? Just kidding, just kidding. It was pretty incredible though.. : )

Thanks for reading.

  3. The second picture of the sword fish made me laugh out loud because it’s face reminds me of the bad guy in Nightmare Before Christmas. It looks sooo mean!

    • isn’t it creepy?! it DOES look like that though…
      it was simultaneously cute (because it looks kind of happy, right?) and scary..
