Sendai Aquarium Project
Mitsui & Co., together with Kamei Corporation, Yokohama Hakkeijima Inc., Yurtec Corporation, Kahoku Shimpo Publishing Co., Sendai Mitsukoshi Ltd., and the Organization for Promoting Urban Development, opened the SENDAI UMINOMORI AQUARIUM on July 1, 2015. Located in Takasago Central Park in the hinterland of Sendai Port, the new facility is one of the largest aquariums in the Tohoku region. Visitors are able to enjoy a relaxing encounter with the Tohoku marine environment and marine creatures in approximately 100 display tanks. The aim of the project is to contribute to the revitalization of the regional economy by creating a new symbol of recovery, a venue for gatherings of local people, and a tourism resource for the Tohoku region.
