Hakkejima Sea Paradise

What better way to start our Summer School at Little Minds with a field trip to the Aquarium
On Saturday 28 July , we visited Hakkejima Sea Paradise, Yokohama


 Students enjoyed a fun filled day exploring rock pools, watching dolphins and seals up to their tricks, finding Nemo and other tropical fishes as well as traveling through underwater tunnels with whales and dolphins swimming overhead.

At 8am, we loaded onto our bus and set off to Hakkejima Sea Paradise
