Tokyo DisneySea opened in September 2001 and was the second of the two theme parks at Tokyo Disney Resort. The park enjoyed great popularity from the start and became the first theme park in the world to hit the 10 million visitor mark fastest Covering 71.22 hectares, Tokyo DisneySea attracted nearly fifteen million visitors in 2018, making it the fourth most-visited theme park in the world.
This Disney park is unique in that it was inspired by myths and legends of the sea. It just consists of thematic areas: Mediterranean Harbor, Mysterious Island, Mermaid Lagoon, Arabian Coast, Lonely River Delta, Harbor Discovery and American Waterfront.
Tokyo DisneySea is located in Chiba Prefecture and therefore outside of Tokyo, but is easily accessible by public transport.

Tokyo DisneySea is the second park that Southern California could have had instead of California Adventure. It boasts seven uniquely themed areas or “ports of call” on 176-acres located in Urayasu, Chiba Prefecture and is geared more towards an older audience having faster, more thrilling, and even romantic rides throughout its nautical themed park.
I was mesmerized by the bright colors and designs of the rides as well as how much thought was put into the detail of each part of the park. There's a variety of foods and snacks and an amazing fireworks and light show in the evening, it was wonderful in its subject matter and ambiance. I would recommend this park to anyone that's coming to visit Tokyo and is interested in being taken away to a different world for a day, and have lots of fun with their family.
Tokyo DisneySea is launching a brand-new attraction called Soaring: Fantastic Flight on Tuesday, July 23rd, 2019. Based on the popular worldwide attraction 'Soarin' Around the World, this flight motion-simulator features brand new scenes and visuals in an exclusive DisneySea experience. During the Soaring: Fantastic Flight simulation guests will be flown around famous landscapes of the world where they will experience sounds and scents in a fully immersive experience. Some of the sights include the African savannah, Egyptian pyramids, the Great Wall of China, and a thrilling finale with a night flight through Tokyo. Much more than a screen viewing, the attraction features seating where guests are strapped in and lifted high into the air, occasionally tilted back and forth with the motion of the flying vehicle called the Dream Flyer. There is a real feeling of soaring through the skies as you are lifted up, but the ride is accessible for everyone as it is very safe with no roller-coaster type drops or lunges. [photo id='202996'] For those interested in the story behind the attraction, Disney has provided the background: Nestled in the hills of Mediterranean Harbor, amidst the backdrop of an old-world Italian village, the Museum of Fantastic Flight is dedicated to humankind’s enduring dream of flying. Today, the museum celebrates Camellia Falco—a visionary innovator in the fledgling field of aviation—with a special retrospective of her life. A grand tour of the museum includes a magical visit from the spirit of Camellia and culminates with Guests boarding her latest and greatest achievement—a flying vehicle of her own design called the Dream Flyer. Guests soon experience what Camellia believed, that our imagination can propel us into the future and take us everywhere in the world we wish to go. And before Guests know it, their spirits are sent soaring. [photo id='202991'] Upon entering the attraction visitors will enjoy a grand tour of the museum, which includes a magical visit from the spirit of Camellia, a character in the attraction. There are also many exclusive soaring menu items sure to delight in the nearby restaurant.

Summer has arrived at Tokyo Disney Resort and that means some splashing summer fun for the whole family under the Tokyo sun. Pirates are taking over Tokyo DisneySea and at the center are the rivalry between Captain Jack Sparrow and Captain Barbossa, from the long-running Pirates of the Caribbean franchise. Guests are caught in the midst of their battle in the “Pirates Summer ‘Get Wet’” harbor show at the Mediterranean Harbor, and as the name suggests, they must be prepared to get wet. The pirates will show no mercy for those close to the stage, splashing and spraying water with fire hoses and buckets, so make sure you’re geared up and protect anything you don’t want soaked (rain covers for your camera is a must). It may sound intimidating at first, but in the melting hot and humid summer in Japan, it’s certainly revitalizing. [photo id='202970'] Two new entertainment programs make its debut at Tokyo Disneyland’s Castle Forecourt stage this summer. In the daytime there is “Judy and Nick’s Jumpin’ Splash” where Judy Hopps and Nick Wilde from the Zootopia come out to “protect” the guests from the heat by soaking them with water. Again, there is no mercy here if you’re right up in front so make sure you’re prepared to get wet. [photo id='202972'] In the evening comes the highlight of the summer event, “Oh! Summer Banzai!” featuring Donald Duck. Set in a colorful and exotic jungle, the show exhibits projection mapping on the castle and a spectacular use of flames and water along with the performances of Donald and his friends. The more guests are closer to the stage, the more they will get wet, if not soaked. Seeing Donald take the center stage is refreshing and the tropical-themed program seems like a perfect fit to blow away the summer heat.

Toyosu Market is a wholesale market in Tokyo located in the Koto District. It was built on man-made land in Tokyo Bay and replaces the historic Tsukiji Fish Market, which was previously the capital's famous fish market. Opened October 2018 and is the largest seafood market in the world. The market in turn consists of two separate fish markets, one for auctions and the other for general sale, plus a fruit and vegetable market. There are also restaurants and a variety of options for visitors. Tourists can watch the market from a viewing platform on the second floor and take part in guided auctions and events. However, it is no longer possible, as was previously the case in Tsukiji, for visitors to be directly at the famous tuna events, a platform was built for this, from which one can see into the interior of the market. The modern building complex also offers a roof terrace and a shrine and is easily accessible by bus and train.
