Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
This amusement park is an ideal spot for kids – even the kind that have a career and a mortgage. There are two main areas – Pleasure Land and Aqua Resorts – and no entrance fee, so you can pay as you go for each attraction or pick up an all-inclusive ticket.
The Aqua Museum aquarium – in the Aqua Resorts area, of course – is worth a visit in itself for the 120,000 sea creatures living there, comprised of 700 different species ranging from dolphins and sharks to penguins and polar bears. At the Umi Farm, visitors can try their hand at fishing before cooking up their catch right on the spot.
Pleasure Island is a more typical amusement park: take in the view from the Sea Paradise Tower, or enjoy the scenery at top speed from the roller coaster swooping over the water. And speaking of water, you can even cruise on a pirate ship through the high seas – there’s plenty to keep you busy during your visit.
Don’t miss the colourful seaside garden at Hakkeijima, where you’ll find cherry blossoms in April and approximately 20,000 hydrangeas come June.
