"Based on the theme of the “Cradle of Life - a Nurturing Aquatic Environment,” SUMIDA AQUARIUM as a whole was designed to be a large cradle nurturing life.
Visitors can enjoy close-up views of penguins and fur seals at one of Japan’s largest indoor open tanks. Furthermore, the aquarium has set up a zone for visitors to watch behind-the-scenes “backyard” operations including the worksites of aquarium keepers. The aquarium welcomes communication between visitors and staff. Friendly and approachable, the aquarium keepers provide us with attentive explanations.

About 3 years have passed since Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant accident. I have visited various places of Japan to see the health consequence of the accident.
Our Prime Minister Abe assures that "The situation is under control. The influence of the contaminated water is completely blocked within Fukushima. There are no health-related problems until now and there will never be health problems." He also said that "Tokyo is 250 kilometers away from Fukushima, and the kind of danger that you imagine does not exist in Tokyo. Tokyo is a very safe city."
As PM Abe said, Tokyo is very far away from Fukushima, people in Tokyo have no concern about the nuclear power plant accident. People in Tokyo have already forgotten the accident, because they think radioactive materials cannot reach there.
