Okinawa’s beautiful sea can be seen in the middle of Tokyo in Ginza Sony Park’s Sony Aquarium 2018. Boasting a variety of 25 species of fish taken from Okinawa Churaumi Aquarium, including the gigantic Napoleon Fish, this outdoor fish tank is home to over a thousand sea creatures. The mini aquarium is on the ground floor of Ginza Sony Park and is on display until Sept 9. Hours: 10:00-23:00. Feeding takes place twice a day from 10:30 and 17:00.

I feel so sorry for the Naploean fish in that tiny tank (for its size).

I agree. From the photos, that tank seems awfully small for what's living in it.

There are 3 pictures and none show the edges, and therefore the size of the tank.

It's 5 meters wide and from the photos, it looks to be maybe a meter deep. It sounds big, but that's not a lot of room for 1000 sea creatures. The rule of thumb for fish tanks is 1 gallon of water per 1 inch of fish.
