Natural Outdoor ice rink

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.
