Nagai Seaside Park – Soleil Hill is an interactive park on Miura Peninsula in Kanagawa Prefecture where you can enjoy Japan’s agriculture and the sea. With flowers blooming year-round and sea air blowing over the fields, you’ll feel as though you’ve been transported to simpler, purer days. The park itself is modeled to look like a provincial town in South France. Try your hand at harvesting vegetables that are grown in season and visit a restaurant with dishes centered around the themes of farm and sea. If you’re feeling crafty, try your hand at one of the many workshops around Nagai Seaside Park, such as bread or candle making and other unusual handicrafts, like a clay ocarina you can play. For animal lovers, there are charming capybaras and kangaroos ready to steal your heart. See the exciting bird show where colorful macaws and cool hawks are shown flying through the sky with their trainer. Meet fluffy alpacas who love a good cuddle, and visit a puppy park and a rabbit park. Children can even try out riding a pony. And for the more high-paced visitor, why not sit behind the wheel of a go-kart and race around the course? There are also cool wading pools that are free of charge, slides, trampolines, swan boats, and even archery experiences. For younger audiences, take a slow spin on the Ferris wheel or the merry-go-round, or a trip around the park on a small train.

Rejuvenate your body, mind, and soul as you watch the distant waves lap against the land without a care in the world. Catch a clear view of Mount Fuji in the winter air or, in summer, surround yourself with over 100,000 sunflowers blooming cheerfully.
