You wanna enjoy whole day for your Holiday?! There is very nice place to go! Hakkeijima is located in Kanazawa-ku, Yokohama, where is a huge man-made island with the area 240 thousand square meters. The size is 18 times bigger than ground of the Tokyo Dome. It takes about 50 minutes from Tokyo Haneda Airport.

The leisure zone is approximately 7.7 ha, and the main leisure zones are “Aqua Resorts” and “Pleasure Land”. Aqua Resorts consists of the Aqua Museum, Dolphin Fantasy and Fureai Lagoon.
