Kasa seasonal natural outdoor ice rink | TOKIGAWA
December 23, 2017 @ 08:00 - January 31, 2018 @ 17:00￥500
Natural Outdoor Ice Rink, Tokigawa –
This is the only natural outdoor ice rink I know of in Saitama. Local volunteers band together to turn the natural ice pool into a suitable skate rink. However, as it is natural ice extra precaution is advised. You can borrow skates, guards and helmets at the rink.
