Finally, our great journey in Tohoku is the last day. Leave the Spa Resort Hawaiians at 9:30 and go to “Shioyazaki Lighthouse” near the sea. The contrast of the blue sea and white lighthouse is beautiful. This place is a scenic spot where many tourists visit from all over Japan. The lighthouse has a panoramic view of the Pacific Ocean.”

We arrived at “Aquamarine Fukushima “,which is Iwaki City’s popular spot.
It is the largest aquarium in Tohoku, which displays over 800 species of living things, including various fish, sesame seals and otters. There are the sea and river in Fukushima prefecture, the waterside of tropical Asia, aquarium reproducing the sea of coral reef, etc. We can see rare creatures closely. There is restaurant in hall, you can taste original menu using seafood such as seafood curry and men’s cutlet of magpie. ”

A large aquarium reproducing the sea off Fukushima where warm Kuroshio and cold Oyashio meet. When you walk through the tunnel, you feel like you are a fish.

A group of sardines swimming at tremendous speed is amazing. I can learn the ecology of fish.

After walking a lot in the aquarium, go to “Crane’s Foot Water” to heal the fatigue of the foot. Anyone can enter for free.

With the foot bath of source sprinkling, not only the foot but also the whole body became warm.


Depart for the last destination “Minami Soma Kashima service area” in search of souvenirs. From Iwaki Yumoto interchange take the Joban Expressway and aim for Sendai International Airport.


We took a break at “Minami Soma Kashima service area”. There are so many rich kinds of goods like sweets, handicraft items in Fukushima is on sale. It is enough to get lost.

We bought a lot of souvenirs for my family and friends. We go to Sendai Airport after we got refreshed our feelings.
