Kodomo no Kuni Yamanashi Japan

Atagoyama Kodomo no kuni (Children’s Land)

Atagoyama Kodomo no kuni (Children’s Land) in Yamanashi is a fantastic, free spot to take your kids. We happened to go during a Yamanashi Schools’ Sports Day weekend so we had the entire park to ourselves!

Atagoyama Kodomo no kuni (Children’s Land) is divided into many areas; the Freedom Square, Bicycle Space, Lion Pond, Flower Maze, Nature House and Camp Site.

The Freedom Square consists of playground equipment for kids that starts from the bottom of Atago Mountain to the mid point. Start at the bottom near the Science Museum and work your way up through colorful maze-like structures, take a break at the mid point where there is plenty of colorful benches to relax , slide down the metal rolling slide, head towards the top to play on wooden playground equipment with rope swing, swings and open area with kendamas, hula hoops, balance sticks and more. Work your way back to the wooded area for water play or let your kids (8 years and younger) take a 3 min boat ride around the colorful water area.

Walk down the paved road and through the forest to reach the kids’ cycling area where kids and adults can ride an array of unique bicycles from single riders up to 4. Follow the map to the flower maze and Nature House to for a beautiful view of Mt. Fuji on a clear day. There is so much to do at Atagoyama Kodomo no kuni (Children’s Land). Highly recommend with young kids.
