The Aqua Museum is one of the largest aquariums in Japan, in which 100,000 animals of 500 kinds live. The dome-shaped escalator that is as if you are taking a walk under water and the "sardine run" by 50,000 sardines, the most in the country, are a must see.
The interactive lagoon lets visitors feel the marine life with their own skin and interact with them heart to heart. You can watch from close up as the beluga whales swim freely and you can touch them directly. Don't miss the chance to pet them when they come close!
A dolphin-themed aquarium with natural light shining in. You will feel like you are watching from the ocean floor as you see from below the dolphins swimming and jumping.
Free fall from 107 meters high with a max. speed of 125 km/h! The fall to the bottom on the Blue Fall is pretty thrilling. If you ride barefoot, you feel the air pressure under your feet, which multiplies the scariness.
Surf Coaster Leviathan
This popular attraction has a loop that sticks out onto the ocean and rushes smoothly above the water. With its sudden falls and twists you will no doubt be screaming. This is an attraction that needs to be experienced when visiting Hakkeijima Sea Paradise.
Aqua Ride II
Raft down the streaming river in this tube-shaped ride, while you get excited bumping into cliffs on the river route and into other boats. It is a dynamic attraction to have fun on while you get splashed by water.
The "Sea Boat" inside the "sea farm" is highly popular. In this attraction, you take a boat into the ocean where dolphins swim and see charming bottlenose dolphins up close while you experience the natural ocean.
