One of the biggest and best aquariums in the Tokyo metropolitan area, Enoshima Aquarium is located right on the beach next to Enoshima Island and is home to more than 20,000 marine animals.

Penguins, seals, dolphins and giant sea turtles are some of the star attractions, and the aquarium is also known for their world-class collection of jellyfish. There's even a "jellyfish show with lights and sounds" - which takes place in the intriguingly named Jellyfish Fantasy Hall.
