Worth it? Don’t miss it.
Tokyo Sea Life Park is a part of the huge Tokyo Zoo located at the north end of Tokyo Bay on a man-made island. The complex includes many exhibits with live marine life and a bird-watching center. There are also miles of walking trails and a huge pond.
The easiest way to get to TSLP is to take the Keio Line to Kasai-Rinkai-Koen Station. By car from west Tokyo take Rt. 257 west into the Wangan Area and then into the park. This area is just west of Suitengumae.
Kasai Rinkai Park
Just west of Tokyo Sea Life Park is a huge open space called Kasai Rinkai Park with miles of walking trails, a bird sanctuary, and a huge Ferris wheel.
The obvious pick in the area is Hotel Seaside Edogawa since it’s right inside Kasai Rinkai Park. On peak season it may be a little expensive so you’ll want to plan ahead and scope out other hotels if this one is too expensive. The hotel is also a popular wedding venue.
There are lots of other hotels in the area but most of them tend to be over $250 USD/night.
The one other option is the oddly-named Family Resort Fifty’s For Maihama at 4-1-3 Minamikasai, Edogawa, Tokyo, Japan, 134-0085. It tends to be very cheap – $40/night off season but it is a bit north of the park. It’s located around 35°38’51.95″ N 139°52’19.09″ E but there is a nearby station – Maihama Station (which is quite a hike of a few miles to the southwest).
If you’re willing to walk 2-3 miles there and back, another option is APA TKP Tokyo Nishikasai to the north @ Nishi-Kasai Station (T16).
