*Our trip to Showa Park*

Warning:This Blog has a lot of photos, but ... it shows you all the cool things to do in this wonderful park.
We did not even do a fraction of what we 'could' have done. :)

So, on Sunday the 7th while in the Yokota area we visited Showa Park.
Showa is a short/easy train ride from Yokota base. I encourage anyone in this are, GO!!
It was super fun, for the whole family. We stayed @ the Kanto Lodge, perfect!

The park is only 400Y to get in, and i think 150Y for the train ride/one way.
Kids get in for 150Y and i think Evan was free!
We spent the whole day having a super fun time.
For all of those who live in Yokosuka, it's easy & such a fun thing to do... dont miss out!

Check out the photos for all the Area's they offer.......
This is the family -me, before we left for the park, on Sunday Morning.

----> Nishi Tachikawa Station is the stop you get off to reach the park.
Once you exit the station, you will basically be at the front door of the park!
Very convenient

After we entered the park, we headed Directly for the Kids Area.
We passed some fun things, that we revisited, before we left the park.
Below we are entering what felt like an Enchanted Forest!

This area even had Stone Snakes.... and other things to climb on. FUN!

Honestly, we headed Directly for the 'Cloud Park' area.
Big Trampoline type clouds.... Adults and Kids alike have such a fun time!
We did!!!!

I will say the clouds were quite hot. Evan's feet were on fire, as he said... pretty much the whole time. I thought it was worth it for the fun!
We worked up Quiet a Thirst/Appetite.

After I stood in line for 20+ minutes, we got Icecream!
Mango, Strawberry, Cookie's & Melon!

Are we having fun yet?

Next time, we will bring our Camel Packs!!!!
We spent at least 20$ or 2,000Y on drinks. This (below) was our fav of the day....

This "Misty Forest" area @ the park was pretty lame, IMO.
The website made it sound REALLY cool.
It was pretty small, and blew 'mist' for like 2 minutes. haha

I think Adults and Kids alike ... our FAV area the Stone Dragon area.
Basically a few Stone Dragons for the kids to climb / slide on ....
The dragons were so beautiful!

After the Dragon area, we went to Rainbow Hammock area.
Just a bunch of climbing nets, just for kids....
Hard, yet fun for the kids. :)

Here is where we had lunch.
It was an indoor cafeteria style place, on the water... by the paddle boats.
We really soaked in the A/C (on the 1st really hot day of the yr)... and the good food.
Our meals were only about 3500Y and that included drinks!

Ok, Whats Next??
Paddle Boats!
Ok, NOT my cup of tea... haha
We did it anyway... 700Y for 30 minutes, per boat.

Um, Ethan... ur boats sinking............ hahah!!!!!!!!! (Not really.........)

Mommy & Evan had a fun time too... although we got a 'weird' boat... with Very Little Leg Room... so i could hardly 'paddle'....... lol
We did make it around the lake, and Evan had fun 'racing' Daddy and looking for fish.

So, After lunch and Paddling... we decided to head back to the Cloud Park for one last jump...
The kids voted, and that's what they wanted...
On the way i said to Ej... Lets let them play in the 'pool' area.
Although we did not bring suits, they still had a blast!!

After clean up and on our way to The Clouds... we did these 2 neat slides...
I Love Parks/Slides and kids 'things' in Japan!
That's what i remember most about Okinawa,... the parks were Amazing!

Jump us Daddy!!!!!

If your kids can ride a 2 wheeler, you can rent bikes for cheap and ride around the entire park.
It looked Fun, but Both Olivia & Evan still need trainers! :(

We had a Great Fun Filled Day, and cant wait to return!
Maybe the Fall would be a Great time... as it was H-O-T that day!

Soooo glad you guys made it to Showa Park! We love it so much! We have annual passes. I go there all the time by myself, I love to sit by the waterfall in the Japanese Garden with a bento and a good book!

You've got to come back when the Rainbow Pool is open (mid-July to early Sept), it's really a lot of fun.

Did you see the poppy field, or are they already gone? So beautiful!

Anytime of year between Sept - May is good, when it's not hot (you're right, those clouds get super hot!) They do a beautiful Winter Illumination at Xmas.

If you can manage to come on a weekeday, it's so much nicer, virtually empty! Sometimes I feel like I have the whole park to myself, I can walk forever without seeing even one person!

Geez, looong comment! Can you tell how much I love Showa Park? LOL

If you scroll your screen just right, it looks like your kids are just levitating. From the shadows in the last picture, it looks like you guys had a great, long day!
