“Treeing” at Shinrin Park | NAMEGAWA

March 25 @ 10:00 - 16:30

Treeing tree climbing in Saitama

“Treeing” is what they call tree climbing with ropes in Japan. It is a very popular event that is carried out periodically in Shinrin Park in Namegawa. The added attraction of the next treeing event is that it coincides with the expected blooming of the stunning cherry blossom trees in the park. However, it will not be a cherry blossom tree that you or your kids will climb!

The next date for this treeing activity in Shinrin Park is March 25th. There are five different time slots: 10.30 am, 11.30 am, 1 pm, 2 pm and 3 pm. The treeing is carried out at the West gate’s “Hiroba”. They take 15 people each time. It is  not required that you make a booking, but first come first served. They open the reception at 9.30 am to put your name down. It costs 1000 yen per person. Children aged 4 years old and older can participate.

From an article I wrote about our experience tree climbing in Shinrin Park:

The classes are an hour long. First you get geared up. Then there is an explanation of the equipment and how to climb up and come back down.  To be honest, listening to the explanation it sounded quite complicated, but once you start executing it you catch on. An hour was just the right length for the four year olds who were getting tired towards the end.
