Visit the Segaia Ocean Dome in Japan

We all love spending quality time with family and friends at the beach during summer. However, not all parts of the world are lucky enough to have a beach. In 1993, expert interior designers and architectures in Japan teamed up to create an artificial beach dubbed the Segaia Ocean Dome. Millions of local and international tourists flooded to this attraction site especially during the weekends. In 1995, the highest number of visitors was recorded: 1.25 million per year.

Unfortunately, the dome was closed on October 1, 2007 to pave way for major renovations as well as re-branding purposes. Unlike the conventional waterparks, Segaia Ocean Dome was packed with numerous amenities, tools, and an exceptional hangar that made it look like a tropical paradise. For example, there was a man-made rock lagoon that would spill artificial lava to the white sand on the beaches. The developers also went the extra mile to incorporate a retractable roof that would close during the rainy days to ensure that the weather does not compromise the beach experience.

One of the mind-boggling facts about this Ocean Dome is that it was only a mile away from the real beach but still millions of people preferred spending time at the Dome instead of going to the beach. The entire dome was 100 meters wide and 300 meters long. The temperature throughout the year stood at 30 degrees Celsius. Some of the main amenities that made it different from the actual ocean beach included:

  • Heated indoor pool
  • A spectacular kid’s pool
  • Floating pool
  • Three thrilling water slides

The Segaia Ocean Dome was a spectacular structure that made it possible for thousands of tourists to enjoy beach life even during the cold season. The many amenities and mood in the Dome made it ideal for both adults and kids.
