Shinrin Park Namegawa Annual Autumn Event – The Outdoor Park line up looks amazing again this year. Unfortunately, last year although we had planned to go, we couldn’t as it was cancelled due to rain. This year too; if there is rain, it will not go ahead.

“Outdoor park” is from 10 am to 3.30 pm both Saturday and Sunday.  There are stage performances, workshops, booths, food, cooking demos, product displays, hammocks, nordic walking… buggy work outs!! As well as all that there are many activities you can try, at a fee, that aren’t regularly available such as;

  • Slackline
  • Sports kite
  • Tree+ing (on this blog)
  • Bouldering
  • Bungy Trampoline
  • Inflated slides
  • Scooter bike and board
  • Pon-poco mountain
