Izu-Mito Sea Paradise (伊豆・三津シーパラダイス)



Located in Numazu City, Shizuoka Prefecture, Izu-Mito Sea Paradise is one of the oldest operating aquariums in Japan. The facility is famous as the first in Japan to keep bottlenose dolphins, sea otters, and walruses. The aquarium is full of attractions, including a giant tank filled with deep sea creatures from the bottom of Suruga Bay, an entrancing illuminated jellyfish tank, a touch pool where visitors can come in contact with deep sea creatures, and marine animal shows. Shows sure to delight adults and children alike are held throughout the day—a dynamic dolphin show, comical sea lion performances, walrus feeding time, and an Asian small-clawed otter handshaking event.

          With the giant Pacific Ocean to the south and the great Mount Fuji to the north, Shizuoka prefecture is blessed with some of the best views the country has to offer. The white sand beaches of the Izu Peninsula are a rare find on mainland Japan, neighbored by beautiful cliffs, tumbling hills, and natural hot springs. As Japan’s largest producer of green tea, the age-old tradition of tea drinking is ubiquitous in Shizuoka, from the miles of tea fields to the old tea houses hosting traditional tea ceremonies.
