Yokohama, 横浜・八景島シーパラダイス

八景島 Sea Paradise is a man made island on the shores of Yokohama. It houses Japan's largest aquarium, also has a parade of rides, shopping arcades, and restaurants. The train ride from Tokyo took us almost an hour to reach Yokohama, then we had to board a special train that goes to and fro the island only, a bit like the train to and fro Sentosa in Singapore. We saw many groups of youngsters having a fun day out on the island. The aquarium is the usual, but it is very nicely done and what impressed me the most was the schools of fish within the aquarium, I have never seen it before in any other aquariums. For lunch we found a nearby restaurant and thought we would have a quick bite before we head back in and see the live show of dolphins and seals. We were very surprised at the quality of the food in the restaurant, the price was stella too but that is to be expected, super happy with the food. After sunset we explored the rest of the island and headed back to Tokyo.
