There's sea, there's greenery, and there's history. Out of the many fun leisure and cultural options in Chita Peninsula, the Minamichita Beach Land opened in 1980 is one place you shouldn't miss.
The interactive aquarium is highly-rated, and there's an excellent exhibition tank too. The huge tank holding 1,000 tons of water is home to many fish native to Ise Bay, who zip around perkily in a reproduction of the natural ocean. Time slips by unnoticed as you gaze at the spectacle before you.
The interactive events are the must-do highlights. Not only can you see marine mammals like sea lions, seals walruses and Steller sea lions and glimpse dolphins and penguins going about their daily life, Japan's number one aquarium for interacting with sea-life also offers lots of chances to feed the animals and touch them.
Opened in 2006, the Toy Kingdom is popular with lots of children; it's packed with around 600 toys including wooden playthings from around the world, Plarail train sets and Licca Chan dolls, and what's more, admission is included free with your ticket.
