Shima Nature School / Float in Leisure on the Sea in a Water Ball

Shima Nature School / Float in Leisure on the Sea in a Water Ball

A water ball is a transparent ball eight feet(approx. 2.5m)in diameter which floats on the surface of the water, and going inside one is quite a unique experience! Even people who are unable to swim can enjoy a jaunt over the water. As the ball is transparent, you can see underwater and enjoy an ecotourism experience as well. Once inside, you set off over the sea pulled by a boat. Lie down and gaze up at the sky, look down into the water, roll around, try standing up – there are all kinds of ways to enjoy an unforgettable water ball experience.
Also recommended for visually impaired and hearing impaired.
It is only held in the evening from early July to mid September.
