Hi!

I’m headed to Japan this September on a brief trip. While there, I plan to tour The Nature Aquarium Gallery.

Are there other must-see aquariums, shops or galleries the forum members recommend?

Thanks in advance for your time and consideration!

Kind regards,
Tony Nodine

If you are in Tokyo, visit Sumida Aquarium where the world’s largest Nature Aquariums were installed by Takashi Amano in 2012 before he passed away a couple years later. For fish stores, visit Aqua Forest at two locations in Tokyo. Sumida is easy to find as it is below the tallest building, Skytree, in Tokyo. Finding Aqua Forest is a challenge as they are small stores in underground mall complexes.

Great! Thanks for the recommendation. I’ll add it to my travel plan.
