New Ice-cream Shop at Enomoto Farm on Popular Cycle course

New Ice-cream Shop at Enomoto Farm

Enomoto Farm in Ageo is frequently mentioned in guide books to Saitama with small children, due to the selection of bikes and push along toys kids can play with for free.  In more recent years, it also features in cycling magazines as a suitable place to rest and refresh on the Arakawa cycle course route.  Its most famous acclaim is its delicious ice-cream, which has been featured on TV. Some say its the best south of Hokkaido!

Last March the Enomoto’s built a new ice-cream shop on their premises. They tore down the old shop and replaced it, so the shop does not take away space from the play and rest area. The new shop has more seating than the previous shop.  At a guess it sits about 20 people. The picnic tables and toilets remain the same, as does the play area out by the BBQ pits.  They have added a cycle course map and information spot in the rest area. I don’t which came first, the information or the cyclists, but nowadays there are more cyclists than kids!

News for Saitama. Children’s castle, Railway museum and LALAPORT

There are quite a few things to look forward to in the New Year in Saitama. For example, Kawagoe’s kodomo no shiro (children’s castle) will reopen for business on January 4th, after 2 months of renovations. The new LALAPORT in Fujimi City is on schedule to open March 31st. And rumour has it the work of expanding the railway museum in Omiya, to 1.5 its current size, will start later in the year.  🙂

Here’s hoping you have your own great news in 2015. Wishing you all the very best for the New Year.
