Ōarai 大洗

On Monday we drove to the coast and spent a day in the port city of Ooarai. We visited the fish market at Naka Minato, a large public aquarium called Aqua World, the Marine Tower, and finally spent some time walking on the beach. The quantiy/quality seafood available at the market was amazing and very inexpensive. The aquarium was as nice as any we have visited in the states and had some pretty unique diplays. As the ocean goes in this part of Japan the water was very cold and the sand a little dirty, but it was nice just the same. As its only a 2 hr drive, Im sure we will return.
