The Mallage in Kuki city offers a number of facilities and services for children, including the Soyu Himitsu No Mori, or Secret Forest, play centre on the 1st floor. It has the unique feature of an indoor paddling / splash pool, which is part of the Secret Waterfall area. There is a changing area where you can borrow pool clothes and store your own clothes in coin lockers. Beside the Secret Waterfall area (秘密の滝) there are toilets and vending machines for patron’s use. On the other side of this rest area is the Secret Flowerfield （秘密の花畑） area, which is a ball pool with a bouncy castle in the middle. The Secret Base (秘密の基地) area contains a play area for smaller children with soft toys, shapes and blocks as well as a pretend kitchen. There is a baby cot in this area too.
