The Hakkeijima Sea Paradise (八景島シーパラダイス) is an amusement park and aquarium located around 30 minutes by train from Yokohama. This theme park is located on a small island called Hakkejima.
Visitors are free to enter the park. An entry fee is required for the entrance of Aqua Resorts and the rides of Pleasure Land.
Aqua Resorts is a big aquarium complex inside Hakkejima Sea Paradise. It consists of Aqua Museum, Dolphin Fantasy and Fureai Lagoon. You can see various water creatures in this aquarium. Not only that, you can also enjoy dolphin show on top of the Aqua Museum building.
Located in a separate building next to Aqua Museum, Dolphin Fantasy features a big arch-shaped pool surrounding a tunnel. Visitors can walk through the tunnel and watch dolphin, stingrays and other fishes swim from below.
The Fureai Lagoon is another aquarium complex where visitors can interact and touch some of the animal.
Pleasure Land is the section for amusement rides. You can find lots of scary roller coaster and kid friendly rides here. The rides here usually do not have a long queue. So for those of you who like ride attraction, Hakkejima is a recommended place compare to Fujikyuu Highland because of the short queue.
