Seagaia Ocean Dome
from wiki and all over internet: The Seagaia Ocean Dome is the world's largest indoor waterpark, located in Miyazaki, Miyazaki, Japan. The Ocean Dome, which is a part of the Sheraton Seagaia Resort, measures 300 metres in length and 100 metres in width, and is listed on the Guinness World Records. It opened in 1993, and visitor numbers peaked in 1995 at 1.25 million a year. Entrance cost was ¥2600 per adult and ¥1600 for children, depending on the season. The Ocean Dome was officially closed on October 1, 2007 as part of a renovation and partial re-branding of the resort. Luckily, the renovations were completed on Novemeber 13th, 2009, and the dome has been reopened. Ever since the reopening of the waterpark, the amount of customers has nearly doubled, and the price has increased to ¥3000 per adult and ¥2000 per child.
Miyazaki is only a breath away by plane, 1 hour 30 minutes from Tokyo’s Haneda Airport and 1 hour 5 minutes from Kansai International Airport. Buses to Seagaia leave from Miyazaki Airport as well as from the JR Miyazaki station, and take less than 30 minutes.
