SAKURA AQUARIUM Directed BY NAKED is a seasonal event that’s held from March 2 to April 21 at the Maxell Aqua Park Shinagawa. It is hosted by the NAKED Inc. and allows visitors to enjoy a cutting-edge, state of the art cherry blossom viewing experience.

The theme for this year’s exhibition is “cherry blossom viewing in a sea of floating petals.”

Cherry blossom flowers in full bloom will welcome the guests at the entrance

The soft colors of the cherry blossoms cover up the entire entrance. On the other hand, opulent cherry anthias are displayed in the water tank of the “Sakura Aquarium.”

The aquarium’s newest attraction is the “Cherry Blossom Viewing Penguins” which features a penguin performance and projection mapping.

Jellyfish Ramble

The jellyfish, and neon lights give this area a laid-back vibe.

In one area of the aquarium, jellyfish are displayed inside seven columnar water tanks and a symbolic crystal water tank. The LED lights and water tank illumination are completely in sync with the music on the scene. The special program paints the space in a beautiful pink and blue hue symbolizing cherry blossoms at night.


This dolphin performance is created using the newest digital art technologies of water, music, light, and images.

The night dolphin performance is a cutting-edge digital performance created with water, music, lights, and images. The show’s theme is a “Sea of Cherry Blossoms”. It tells a story of the beauty of cherry blossoms illustrated alongside an entertaining dolphin performance. Throughout the projection, an infinite number of
sakura petals surround the audience while digital art, sakura, and dolphins weave in and out of the picture to create an unforgettable 360-degree hanami experience.

Special Exhibition and Café Bar

Shinagawa Prince Hotel.
