On the brink
In 2001, the largest water park in the world almost had to close. The fact is that at that time the resort accumulated a huge debt of two and a half billion dollars. And this is despite the fact that the entrance to the grand building costs a lot. Buying on the indoor beach with perfect weather costs from fifty to one hundred dollars. In fact, at the beginning of the new century, the infrastructure of Japan was going through hard times, there was a big recession and interest in the water park, even if this unique one, died out sharply. Moreover, next to the indoor water park is another, very ordinary, and no less popular beach. For seven years, the company - the owner of the water park has tried to make ends meet. Still managed to overcome the crisis, so the beach and water park are now flourishing again.

It was built before the time of the Second World War. Before slides and waters appeared here, huge dirigibles were kept in the hangar. Now this place is visited by a huge number of people who not only swim in the pools, but also attend attractions.
