“Kodomono Kuni” huge kids park in Kanagawa

Kodomonokuni “Kids Country” is a huge natural kids park in Kanagawa, perfect if you are living in Tokyo and want to escape the city to let your kids run around in the countryside.

It is literally huge, with playgrounds, animal farm, trains, roller coasters, and BBQ areas.

With 2 toddlers, we only got as far as the playgrounds this trip, but definitely want to visit again and see the animal farm (apparently you can milk the cows and cuddle all the little animals like guinea pigs and rabbits).

  • Hours: 9:30a.m.-4:30p.m.(5:00p.m.in July & August)
  • Closed on every Wednesday, Dec.31 & Jan1. Open on Wednesday when it is a national holiday.

See more details at the Kodomono kuni website

You can see from the photos below how beautiful and green it was!

And I must say, coming from Australia, I was impressed with the big shady trees so your children can play happily under the shade and protected from the sun.

Cute little toddler train that does a little loop around the playgrounds. It has good shelter under the roof, so it is a nice break from the sun if it's hot

Tunnel that you can walk through to go to the animal farm. Unfortunately we ran out of time, but want to visit the animals next time!
