Gallery: Penguins ‘Fly’ Through the Skies at Tokyo’s Sunshine Aquarium!

For one hour each evening the sea lions are removed from the aqua ring to make way for the penguins.

The Sunshine Aquarium is a small aquarium located on the roof of a nine-story building in Tokyo’s Sunshine City. On the roof, the open-air “Aqua Ring” is elevated about 7.5 feet off the ground, giving visitors an opportunity to view sea lions — and now penguins — swimming from beneath. (This video shoes sea lions swimming laps in the Aqua Ring.) The “flying penguin” exhibit currently runs from 6:30 and 7:30 PM, and it is expected to run through September 2, 2012.
