While on holidays in Tokyo, Japan I took so many pictures as I was enthralled by the stunning scenery at the place. Here is part 2 of the post on Tokyo Disneysea
Stepping through the gates at Tokyo DisneySea you are instantly transported to Europe seeing the western architecture of the buildings. I could easily imagined that I was walking along the banks of the French Riviera looking at the ships that were docked.
Seashells adorn the top of the buildings at Mermaid Lagoon. I love how pretty they look and how the conical structures gave height and grandeur to the palace.
I love this decoration which we saw at the entrance of Ariel among the coral which was adorned with pearls. Tiger girl can recognise all the Disney princesses and was happily pointing to the ornament and calling out Ariel insisting that everyone take a look at it.
The decorations inside Mermaid Lagoon were equally fascinating as those outside. Just check out the jellyfish lanterns in the photo above. I seriously wouldn’t mind having some of them for my own home to jazz up the place.
No sea palace would be complete without the statue of King Neptune holding the Trident going around in his carriage. The dolphin led carriage was certainly dressed up for the season of Christmas with corals acting as ” antlers” while Neptune himself was given Santa’s red hat to wear.
The boys saw this extremely big dog with it’s master walking around the perimeter while we were checking out Mermaid Lagoon. They immediately went up to take a photograph together with it. I can’t remember what was the name of the pup but it certainly reminded me of Clifford the big red dog from the storybooks which I used to read to them when they were young.
I would certainly love to have such a mailbox if I was staying in a house. It would be the most outstanding one along the street with it’s ornate metal vases. I saw quite a few little girls slip letters to Ariel the mermaid. If Tiger girl were older I think she would have gamely done the same.
From Mermaid Lagoon we ventured to Mediterranean Harbour and saw many Mickey inspired street lamps. Aren’t they really colorful?
From under the sea we were transported to Arabia where Aladin and the Genie lived. I spotted this really unusual genie inspired fountain in the courtyard. The building in the background was a two level carousel which can easily accommodate a few hundred riders each time.
Another picturous spot in Tokyo DisneySea was at the American Waterfront area. The set up was like being in an Old Western movie with many traditional looking buildings from the Tom Sawyer era.
Don’t you love the architecture and decorations in this theme park?
