Mihama opens new place for kids to play

Date Posted: 2011-12-30

A brand new place for kids to play has recently opened at Mihama Depot Island, and the Mihama Kid's Park owner says he wanted something unique and safe.

Owner Masaki Itokazu opened the specialty kids center just before the Christmas holidays. The Mihama Kids’ Park is the only place on Okinawa with a balloon pool. The 6’ x 6’ pool-like area is filled with soft colorful balloons six-inches-deep providing a perfect place for kids to dive and tunnel through the balls, behaving like…well…like little kids. “I wanted to create something different for children to enjoy and play,” he says, and the Mihama Kids Park is the result.

Located near Kadena Air Base and Camps Lester and Foster, it’s a perfect playground for kids ages two and up. Prices vary by age, but the base weekday price for kids 19 months ~ age 12 is ¥750, plus ¥200 for parents or guardians. Saturday and Sunday prices are slightly higher. Prices for babies are less, as well as for teenagers, and Mihama Kids Park also offers group rates.

The Mihama Kids Park is open seven days a week, 10 a.m. ~ 8 p.m. Aside from the balloons pit, there’s a trampoline, an open play area and an adjacent cafeteria. Mihama Kids Park has a separate party area that can accommodate groups of 15, and it’s free. Customers must provide their own foods and beverages for parties.

Mihama Kids Park can accommodate up to 100 children and their parents at one time. No shoes are slowed on play areas, but socks are mandatory. English speaking staff are on premises at all time, and parking in the Depot Island parking area is free. The website is predominantly Japanese, at http://mihama-kids.com/page-3, but does have a listing of fees. Reservations information is available at (098) 936-5667.
