To be perfectly honest, on the days leading up to this event I was so caught up with thoughts of renegade dolphins and shark tanks exploding in my face that I never stopped to think about what else I would encounter at a Japanese aquarium: Japanese schoolchildren.

|The pink hat kids had to settle for the side sections.|
|It's beginning to feel a lot like Christmas.|
|Scuba Santa feeds big flat fish while I pretend the kids and I are watching a cartoon.|

Shinagawa Aquarium is an easy train ride from Yokosuka. We took an express train to Keikyu Kamata then rode a local train until the fourth stop. The aquarium is located in a lovely park two blocks from the station. The park merits further exploration but I think I'll wait until the spring for that.
