Yokohama Hakkeijima Sea Paradise, Yokohama

4.0
#1 of 14 in Zoos & Aquariums in Kanagawa Prefecture
One of the most-visited parks of its kind in the country, Yokohama Hakkeijima Sea Paradise combines classic thrill rides and entertainment with an extensive aquarium complex. When you enter the park, sprawled across a small island, you'll find that you can wander free of charge through its green spaces and along its waterfront promenades. Explore the Aqua Resort area to glimpse fan-favorite aquatic critters, which range from playful sea lions and walruses to polar bears and sharks, housed in imposing tanks. In Pleasure Land, you can get your adrenaline dose on a range of roller coasters, the tallest of which reaches a height of 107 m (351 ft). Keep in mind that both of these sections charge fees for their attractions.

  • I ve never been to an aquarium before and yes it is great to see all these animals from so close but in such a tiny space I m not sure I felt uncomfortable to see Polar Beas, dolphins and other animal...  more »
  • Entrance open and at the same time, look at the Aquarium, touching a fish in the water, played with attractions, relaxing on the beach, and play all day long. Maybe buy tickets don't even to walk around alone, children might be enough fun (get free).

  • A great place for a family visit. The Aquarium has plenty to see, the dolphin shows are one of the highlights (not just for the heated seats). There is a theme park with rides that even the biggest kids will enjoy. There are even boats that can be operated by children. Admission is not charged before entering the park, you pay for the rides individually or to enter the aquarium. A one year pass for the aquarium costs a little more than 2 visits, so it’s a good option if you have a few chances to visit. We visited in a public holiday and it wasn't too crowded.
  • Very good for little kids, the aquarium also has an amusement park, main aquarium was awesome, dolphin show was pretty babyish. There was a exibit for bottlenose and Commerson's dolphins. There was a series of pool for fishing,(pay extra money for fishing) the water was really disgusting and also in front of a resturant. Food was so-so. The in the last aquarium part you could touch and feed dolphins and take pictures with penguins and seals.
  • Great views and interaction with all sea animals and you can also enjoy shopping for cute souvenirs and stuff toys. A wonderful experience not only for kids but also for the rest of the family.
  • Wonderful experience with many facilities. This place always tell us to comeback while return back. Nice place to see near Tokyo. you can cover along with your Yokohama trip.
  • shows with dolphins, beluga whale, walrus and sea lions. The theme park is note interesting. but good collection of large sea mammals.
