After reading about this amazing wonder of Japan, I began to understand how spoiled I am(I’m only talking for myself). We have warm summers in US but even if you live in Alaska you can always find a cheap flight to Florida or California. In Japan they can build an indoor beach in the middle of Alaska so that even if there is a snow storm outside you can enjoy all the comforts of a beach.
Seagaia Ocean Dome
There is nothing worse than Japanese summer. If the weather isn’t too hot, it’s probably just because the rain season hasn’t quite ended yet. Not to mention the suffocating moisture! And say the improbable happens, as it occasionally does, and one day the weather is absolutely perfect, you’ll be damned if you can find a nice beach where you can spend it.
There is a solution to this dilemma and it is spelled “Ocean Dome”, and is situated in Miyazaki, southern Japan. The Ocean Dome is, as it happens, the world’s largest indoor water park, measuring a massive 300 meters in length and 100 meters in width. The dome features a retractable roof – on sunny days, it’s open, on less sunny days, it’s closed, but even then the ceiling provides you with a perfect blue sky. The air temperature is always kept at hot, but not too hot 30°C (85°F), and the water temperature at 28°C.
If this somehow isn’t enough to whet your appetite, how about if we add a flame-spitting volcano, hi-tech wave machinery and crushed white marble sand, almost identical to the real thing except it doesn’t stick to your body quite as much? Wow. I guess only a complete sucker would have built the world’s most technologically advanced indoor beach and then spoilt it all by going for utterly boring, totally unimaginative REAL sand.
