Hakkeijima Sea Paradise is a large theme park that includes Aqua Resorts, Pleasure Land, shops, restaurants, and also a hotel. Aqua Resorts includes three distinct major attractions. These include Aqua Museum, Dolphin Fantasy, the Fureai Lagoon, and UMI FARM. There is also the Aqua Theater that features a short movie of marine life from around the world.

The Aqua Museum aquarium is several floors tall and houses a lot of marine life including penguins, sea otters, polar bears, sharks, and many, many more. Depending on the time, you can watch staff interacting with the marine life during feeding time, such as walrus tricks and swimming with the sharks. The Aqua Museum has two gigantic tanks across several floors. It is amazing to ride up the escalator directly through the tank, watching the fish swim around you. The other tank contains the largest fish in the world, whale sharks. At the top, the stadium area can be accessed, where the marine life show is presented. The show is in Japanese, but can be followed quite easily. If you catch the show, you’ll have a lot of fun seeing sea lions catching rings around their necks, walruses blowing kisses and a whole lot more.

Dolphin Fantasy is an aquarium filled with dolphins, viewable through a glass tunnel. It feels like you are underwater as dolphins swim above you, the sun glistening through the water. The dolphins are enjoyable to watch and you can easily spend hours here. Also, there is a giant mola mola, the ocean sunfish. It is slightly strange looking, but fun to observe as it swims around its tank.

The Fureai Lagoon is a more of an interactive experience. It starts with a short introductory video (in Japanese). Get a copy of the English handout, which describes the basic rules. Don’t touch the heads of the dolphin or beluga (white whale), hold onto hats and other items to prevent dropping them into the marine life enclosures, and do not feed the marine life. The Fureai Lagoon is where you can pet a dolphin, beluga whale, and walrus. It is very safe, even for children, and the trainers and staff are very attentive. Outdoor enclosures exist for walruses, sea lions, and penguins.

During your time at Hakkeijima Sea Paradise, there are various places to rest, eat and shop. If the Aqua Resorts was not enough, venture into the arcade, try the rides or roller coaster, or even stay overnight at the hotel. An unforgettable experience, an annual pass can also be bought if you are thinking of making return trips.

The Hara Model Railway Museum is located in Yokohama, where Japan's first railway started. The museum opens to the public a massive collection of models trains, said to be the largest in the world, made and possessed by Nobutaro Hara. The collection also includes many railway collectables other than the model trains.

One of the features of Hara's models is that they recreate cars from Japan, Europe, the United States, and other places around the globe. From steam locomotives to electric locomotives, those tell of an age when railways were making tremendous advances. With those models, visitors can enjoy the world's railways without ever leaving Yokohama.

世界的に著名な鉄道模型製作・収集家である原信太郎氏のコレクションから選りすぐった鉄道模型約1,000両を展示!

A surprising addition to Minamo Mitrai district’s list of attractions is Nogeyama Zoological Garden, which despite being just a short walk away from Sakuragicho Station, offer a relaxing contrast to Minato Mirai`s ever bustling and futuristic landscape.

Located on a hilltop in a quiet residential neighborhood, Nogeyama Park is a great place to escape the crowds and enjoy the peaceful greenery and wide open spaces. When walking around it is hard to believe that you are only a few minutes away from one of the liveliest parts of Yokohama. A short distance away from this park is another interesting place worth visiting, Nogeyama Zoological Gardens.

Opened in 1951, Nogeyama was the first zoo to be opened in Yokohama. Covering an area of 8 acres, Nogeyama is the only centrally located zoo within Yokohama, making it very convenient and easy to access. More importantly, it is free!

The zoo has initiated a number of improvements including the construction of a new `Nakayoshi` area allowing children to interact freely with smaller animals. Many new programs have also been introduced including a `Night Zoo` during the summer months.

Because of its compact size, this Zoo makes a nice place to spend several hours wandering around the various enclosures. There are about 100 different species of animals including monkeys, wild cats, birds and several Red Pandas.

Without doubt, the Red Pandas are the star attraction of this zoo and are therefore located close to main entrance, making them the first and last animals that you will see. Having seen a couple of Red Pandas recently at another zoo, I was very impressed by the design of the enclosure which almost (but not quite), allows you to get within touching distance.

Along with the usual array of animals that can be found in many other zoos, are several `Tuften Capuchin`, (a small South American Money). Perhaps it`s because of their cute features or their interesting personalities that I found it hard moving on to the next enclosure.

The next interesting creature which I encountered was a Kagu, (A bird). Indigenous to New Caledonia and a little similar to the New Zealand Kiwi, this was the first time I had seen this bird. Indeed, Nogeyama can boast about being the only zoo in Japan and perhaps one of the few places in the world to host this bird.

From JR Sakuragicho Station it’s a pleasant 15 minute walk. Alternatively, from Keikyu Hinodecho Station it’s an even shorter 10 minute walk.
