  • Kamogawa Sea World?

    Hi everyone! I'm currently planning a trip to TDR for next June. Having a background in marine mammal training, one of the other places I'd love to see while I'm there is Kamogawa Sea World. It looks like it's not too far away from Tokyo, but I know maps can be deceiving. So I'm curious - would a day trip out there be feasible? Or would it be too far away for one day? Is it easy to get to by train, and how much would I be looking at paying for transportation?

    If anyone could help me out here, I'd really appreciate it! Thanks!

    I'm going to move this thread to the Tokyo section in the hopes that one of the people there will have some info for you.

      Thanks! I just didn't want to stick it here if it didn't belong, since it's not a Disney park.

        Hi xfkirsten,

        Kamogawa Sea World is in the same prefecture as Tokyo Disney Resort but it's way out in the southern part of the peninsula.

        The JR "View Wakashio" express train from Tokyo Station takes just less than 2 hours and costs 4000yen each way per person.

        Did you want to go to this park in particular or any interactive marine park around Tokyo? I believe Hakkeijima Sea Paradise offers similar activities and is just 45min by local train from Central Tokyo. http://www.seaparadise.co.jp/english/

          I agree with Joe. Unless you have a thing for killer whales, Hakkeijima Sea Paradise offers more. Kamogawa Sea World is also quite far from the station too (you`ll need to take a bus).

          If you are looking for something closer but smaller you can try:

          1) Shinagawa Aquarium (Free bus service from Oimachi Station)

          http://www.aquarium.gr.jp/en/index.html

          2) Epson Shinagawa Aqua Stadium (just a few minutes on foot from Shinagawa Station)

          3)Tokyo Sea Life Park (The next station down from Maihama heading towards Tokyo)

          If I had to choose one, I would go with Hakkeijima Sea Paradise

            Thanks for the suggestions! I'll definitely have to look into those. I wouldn't mind the longer trip so much, but that's like $75 USD roundtrip for the train. Ouch! Hakkeijima Sea Paradise looks like a pretty nice one! I'd been looking at Kamogawa mainly because of the killer whales... but I can hop on a whale watch cruise and see the wild ones right here at home for less than it would cost me just to get there! Tokyo Sea Life Park seems pretty easy to get to from TDR, too, so that might be a good way to spend an afternoon relaxing.

            Thanks!

              Epson Shinagawa Aqua Stadium: We stayed in the hotel with this our second trip. We never did check it out but the videos they played in the hotel room did make it look interesting. The Shinagawa Prince Hotel has a movie theater and several rides too.

                I am sure many here will know that Kamogawa Sea World is NOT affiliated with the Sea World parks in the USA. Only the name and the killer whales are similar. Don't go there expecting the same experiences you get at Sea World San Diego/Orlando/San Antonio.

                  Oh, I've known that for years. I worked for SeaWorld here in the States. I'm specifically looking for a different experience.
