Hanno Green Carnival at Akebono Children’s Forest | HANNO
June 2 @ 10:00 - June 3 @ 17:00Varies
Date and Time: Saturday 2nd and Sunday 3rd of June from 10 am to 5 pm. The event will go ahead if there is light rain, but it maybe cancelled if there is heavy rain or stormy weather.
Akebono Children’s Forest is one of the most unique parks in Saitama and always a great day out. The green carnival is jam packed with additional fun for kids and adults. Some of the event space and life performances are free to enjoy, but if you want to enter the carnival’s kids area it costs money.
There is food on the day, mainly bread and pastry. There will also be a Moomin stand selling Moomin goods. Sweets Cafe Ohana will have a stand at the carnival too.
Budget: upwards of 500 yen per person. For a ticket that allows access to both workshops and the live stage it costs upwards of 2000 yen. More on the tickets and system (Japanese only).
Access Hanno Green Carnival
Moomin Valley is approximately 20 minutes from both the Sayama-Hidaka and Iruma Interchanges of the Chuo expressway. The park is situated behind Hanno’s city public gym and hockey courts. There is a Cainz beside it which is probably the best landmark. They are on prefectural route 195; 9 kilometres from route 16 if you come of the Chuo Expressway at the Iruma Interchange. Prefectural road 195 also meets up with route 407 which is the road I took from Sakado. The road is quite busy and only one lane for a lot of the journey. The car park is in the grounds of Hanno’s Taiikukan.
A 20 minute walk from Motokaji 元加治 Station on the Seibu Ikebukuro line.
