New Playground at Higashimatsuyama Botanen | HIGASHIMATSUYAMA
August 1 - August 31
The new playground at Botanen in Higashimatsuyama (the one near Shinrin Park NOT Yakyu Inari) will temporarily open for the summer holidays from August 1st to 31st. It will not be completly finished or permanently open for business until the end of 2017.
This playground is now the biggest playground in the city of Higashimatsuyama. There is one large combination piece, with another smaller one in front. There are a number of slides, one of which is a windy tunnel slide and another a roller slide. The roller slide has plastic sleighs beside it that you can use freely to protect your bum as you come down the slide!
Botanen is in Higashimatsuyama, but is very close to Shinrin Park in Namegawa. There is free parking in two different locations. There is currently no charge into the park, but they do charge during the Peony flower season when the park is in full bloom.
The nearest station is Shinrin Koen Station on the Tobu Tojo Line. It is a ten minute drive from Botanen. During Peony season there is a special bus that runs every 15 minutes from Higashimatsuyama Station on Saturdays. It costs 100 yen.
