    Why did they build a beach 1/2 mile away from the real thing? :confused:

    Pajeh is right, the OP one is in Japan.

    Stupid really, given that they can't be more than 500m from a real beach. LOL.

    Pretty cool. But why pay to go in there when the beach is down the road?
    Never understand those Japanese :p

    Looks like a pretty cool place though.

    I agree it is daft. But, they get to open and make money 365 days in a year.

    I'll stick to the real thing. :cool:
