Summer in Shinjuku Chuo Park

A perfect place for kids to play in Tokyo

Want a place to entertain your kids in the midsummer in Tokyo for free?
Well, look no further than Shinjuku Chuo Park

The paddling pool じゃぶじゃぶ池 is fantastic. It is fairly big.
It seems that the water of these paddling pools are drained on a daily basis, so in theory, the water should be fairly clean of germs.

For older kids, there is the option to ride tricycles or some other strange bike contraptions & there is a huge playground as well.

And For the Older Kids!

And for the older kids, there is a beer garden, a perfect place to wind down and enjoy a nice cold beer!
