The “Come Into Contact With Nature Festival” is a little easier to roll off the tongue in Japanese than in English (Midori To Fureau Festival) but it seems a great event for city kids whatever you call it.
There seems to be things that adults can do too but the main emphasis is on kids being able to learn about nature. To what extent you will need Japanese language skills to fully enjoy it is uncertain but there will be food, drink and a day in the park if nothing else. There are a number of activities from tree climbing to ‘forest adventure’ climbing frames and ‘forest yoga’ for adults. Check out page 10 of the pdf in the event link below for pictures of what to expect – it’s the dark green button under the pink bird on the right of the main picture. Although the pdf is titled 2015 entry, that is for NPOs – vistors don’t have to pay anything to enter, it’s free!
Please note that it closes at 5:00pm on the Saturday but 4:00pm on the Sunday and that it will be cancelled in the event of stormy weather.
