Kodomo no Kuni
This Huge Playground that Makes Use of its Natural Hills is Somewhere the Family can Play All Day
This park first opened in 1965. Flanked by Yokohama’s Aoba-ku and Tokyo’s Machida City, its huge playground area spans 1,000,000 square meters and makes great use of the surrounding Tama Hills area.
Here you can enjoy a pasture and mini-zoo, a pool, and a skate area, as well as the park’s plentiful play equipment, cycling, and playgrounds. You can even go for a boat ride on the 1-meter-deep “Swan Lake,” enjoying the nature and wild birds present with each season.
If you’re looking for food or drinks, there not only are restaurants and shops in the park, but you can even use the barbecue area if you make a reservation!
Children and adults can play to their hearts’ content on the vast area, almost 250 acres, surrounded by nature.
Tons of playground equipment, including a massive maze and 110-meter-long roller slide.
Their famous product is a soft-serve ice cream made on the farm.
Can meet animals up close.
Outdoor pool is open during summer (mid-July through late August).
Outdoor skating rink is open during winter (late December through late February).
