Adventure World spices up Children’s Day, Golden Week
May 5th is Children’s Day, a Japanese national holiday and a part of the “Golden Week” in Japan.
The 12th Kids Festival Adventure World is a part of the holiday excitement kids eagerly await, as there are plenty of events geared especially for children. The Adventure World takes place at the Chatan Dome in Mihama, Chatan, with the slogan “Seven Adventures gather at Chatan Dome.”
The festival is full of exciting events and attractions for both kids and their families.
There are battle matches of giant insects; sales and auctions of insects; a Snow Show Adventure where kids can touch and play with snow and experience an artificial snowfall and sled slide; a petting zoo with a variety of animals and many different breeds of dogs and cats; a huge bubble making machine, which produces some 10,000 soap bubbles per minute; a kiddie pool (be sure to bring your swimwear); and a haunted house.
Visitors can take photos with a 26” tall Cape penguin from the southern coastline of Africa. Children can enjoy unlimited rides on air bouncers free of charge.
