Tokyo's Ikebukuro region is home to the epic Sunshine Aquarium. The majestic nature of this marine exhibit has yet to be matched elsewhere given its breathtaking aerial features. The vantage point offered here operates from the ground up, meaning that viewers must look to the sky to take in the rare beauty of the water-bound animals.

Seals and penguins are found swimming here at approximately 7.5 feet in the air. Sunshine Aquarium's rounded 'aqua ring' provides the perfect space for the creatures to spin around in here, and for the guests to follow their every move along the sinewy glass. The two species are kept separate during the showings, allowing for specific and unusual observations to be made.
