Discover 4 novel activities that will make your next trip to Japan as wonderful for your kids as it is for you!
When you board the plane for Japan, your children cannot possibly imagine what a wonderful vacation you have planned for them. Here are 4 activities your kids are sure to love!
1 – Horseback riding for beginners: The intimate relationship between the Kobuchizawa region and its horses has been going strong since the Sengoku era, when commanding officer Shingen Takeda used the region as an operating base during his conquest of the Shinano Province. The region still bears the marks from that era. This is why equestrian centres have chosen this place to share their historic love of horses with the public.
Horseback riding is taught in a unique way, based on the art of taming horses, understanding them and building a perfectly trusting relationship with them. This activity is accessible in just a 10-minute drive from Hoshino Resorts RISONARE Yatsugatake, and is sure to please the younger crowd. Ready to hop in the saddle, kids?
2 – Playing cowboys in the middle of the forest: This equestrian centre lets young children dress up as cowboys and ride ponies like in the Far West to explore the surrounding forest. A fun-filled ride that your little ones will remember for years to come! Yee-haw!
3 – An elevated adventure on wooden logs: In the forest, your children will be able to reach new heights as they discover the local fauna and flora. They will be safe with a guide and a harness as they launch into a wooden log course 5 to 7 metres above the ground. An original way to discover a mysterious and fascinating world. Do not miss out on this experience!
4 – Games and discovery in the heart of nature: Many other games in the great outdoors are available near Hoshino Resorts RISONARE Yatsugatake. They will learn about summer fruits and vegetables, and even pick them to prepare a fragrant curry that is sure to finally make them love their veggies!
And since the surrounding area has some of the most crystalline water in Japan, your children will be able to jump in the water, laughing as the current carries them to the next pier.
Are you ready for a holiday in Japan that your kids will never forget?
