DisneySea resort re-opens in Chiba
Earthquake-struck holiday resort DisneySea re-opened last week (April 30th) as tourists started to flock back into the city of Urayasu in Chiba Prefecture.
The Disney resort was closed after the March 11th earthquake, along with the nearby Tokyo Disneyland, which re-opened on April 15th, Japan Times reported.
This announcement is just in time for Japan's Golden Week holiday period and it is hoped that this move will attract more visitors to the region.
The theme park also said that it would be taking several energy-saving measures to help with the national power shortage, such as reducing the amount of lighting used in shops.
DisneySea Park was opened in 2001 and consists of seven theme ports, presenting stories of the ocean for the guests.
Popular rides include Journey to the Centre of the Earth, The Tower of Terror and Indiana Jones Adventure: Temple of the Crystal Skull.
