Why Kodomo-no-Kuni is special ?

Kodomonokuni is filled with a rainbow of birds and fowl arrayed in every color imaginable. The kids just throw these a cursory glance as the pass: the birds are in cages, so there's not even the thrill of running among them as in the local park and scaring them into flight. Fortunately, there's only one cage with tanuki inside. The rabbits are one of the biggest attractions, as the children can go into their enclosure and pat the creatures on their laps. The ubiquitous towels placed on children's laps at most "petting zoos" are absent at this more rigorously natural enclosure. You can also play with farm animals such as pigs and goats, if you can get hold of them, and there are also demonstrations of dairy farming, milking, etc. This is not all as peaceful as it seems: the last time we were there, four U.S. F-16s on military maneuvers managed to silence the noise from about 150 yochien kids.


The most valuable thing about Children's Land is the many obstacles courses and outdoor "challenge" events where children swing on ropes, balance on beams, and tear through industrial-sized playground equipment. They gambol through the woods and glades, play hide and seek in tunnels with echoes, wrestle with stepping stones in a stream and climb hills to cross hanging bridges.

It only costs 600 Yen to enter (for adults - less for children) and then you pay extra for any extra things you want to do while you're there. If you find that pricey, like the below person, then simply bring a picnic and blanket and roam round the place for the day! It's absolutely beautiful, and because it's so big it doesn't feel packed... even when it is. So much to do - farm/zoo, playgrounds, pools, cycling, trains. Well worth a trip. My one-and-three-quarter-year-old loved it!
