Zone Guide Chain of Life -Tokyo Bay and Tokyo Islands-

As they travel along the approximately 50 m-long access slope connecting the 5th and 6th floors, visitors can enjoy views of marine life native to Tokyo's seas, a nearby cradle for aquatic life. Tokyo's seas encompass Tokyo Bay and the waters off the "Tokyo Islands," a collective term describing the chain of islands stretching from the Izu Islands in the north to the Ogasawara Islands in the south.Visitors may find that they know surprisingly little about Tokyo's seas. They will follow an access slope filled with views of an abundance of distinctive marine life, highlighted by species unique to the Ogasawara Islands. After walking down the access slope, visitors will arrive at an exhibit called the "Cradle of Life: The Riches of the Aquatic Environment-Main Tokyo Tank."Here, the aquarium is planning an initiative to nurture small sea turtles born in Ogasawara in "cradles" at the SUMIDA AQUARIUM, and eventually return them to the seas of Ogasawara.
