Sunshine City



Sunshine City opened in 1978 as the core project for development of the Ikebukuro area, and as the first large-scale private-sector initiative. In addition to shops and restaurants, there are many amusement facilities such as an observatory and aquarium. Furthermore, it also includes apartments and hotels, creating a space that contains many of the functions needed for urban life. The Sunshine Aquarium has a history of over 30 years as an urban aquarium, and there are popular performances of sea lions, pelicans and penguins that are held each day. The Konica Minolta Planetarium was renovated in December 2015. Under the theme of ”liberation of the senses”, it features full-dome projection of high-resolution full-color CG motion imaging accompanied by music and scents, making for an amazingly realistic experience. It is a 3-minute walk from Higashi-Ikebukuro Station on the Tokyo Metro Yurakucho Line, .
