Yokohama Hakkeijima Sea Paradise, Yokohama

4.0
#1 of 15 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.

  • Focusing on the Aquarium only aim for small children, and went to play on weekdays. Made in response to the opening hours of the Aquarium, so parking is almost empty. It was a weekday is fun. We can see directly from the top or hosting a light show in a large tank of tornado of sardines resemble the petals of cherry blossoms, in the brackish fish instead of glass, exhibits various ingenious devices and my son was very happy. Also dolphin and sea lion shows seen poolside seating with heaters or warm ass the Dolphin Aquarium can be looked up from under the Dolphin fantasy looking up at too tired to put a lot of bench, etc. Where can feel the care facilities is high. Dolphins directly touched "fureai lagoon" is more narrowly whether or not touch the dolphins are found, depending on the mood of the dolphins. Good amusement, enjoy a day with parent and child feel slightly poor dining room may be tested everyday actions (lol), especially in the food court, but apart from that, I think.

  • This place was the highlight of our trip in Yokohama. We spent a whole day at this place. Getting there was rather far but worth it. The aquarium was very impressive and the amuasment park was big. It...  more »

  • All the day spent there. Just great! Lots of things to do, even during winter. In summer it must be even more amazing! I do recommend!
  • The park is pretty big, we only opted for the aquarium ticket, which also included 3 other places to visit within the park. That cost 3k and was money well spent, we didn't choose to also go to the theme park simply because we have a toddler and couldn't go on most of the rides. The aquarium was well designed, I didn't like seeing a polar bear there given how much they like to roam, but that's the hypocrite in me visiting a marine park. Other attractions include an area where you can feed and touch dolphins, seals, pilot whales - just but the tickets to those parts early as there is a cap on tickets - naturally they can only consume so much / day. There are plenty of restaurants and ice cream parlours located around the park, it's so refreshing not to have huge crowds and be queueing for everything.
  • This was much less exciting than the hype. Perhaps it's a result of having visited the National Aquarium in Baltimore, and many other world class aquariums and zoos, but we were underwhelmed. The pens seemed small, the animals didn't have much stimulation. On the plus side, it was easy to visit by train or by taxi.
  • Great for the whole family lots to do and see;. Dolphin show, pet sea life, go on amusement park rides, and lots of shops to eat and buy souvenirs.
  • Pretty decent sea park with two excellent aquariums and several beautiful underwater tunnels/viewing areas. The only unfortunate thing is the tanks for the marine mammals are quite small. It's somewhat understandable since Tokyo doesn't have as much available land area to build a sea park like the ones in the U.S., but personally I wish the animals had a bit more room to move around.
