Known as a model for the nursery song “Yuyake Koyake”, “Yuyake Koyake Fureai no Sato” at Kamiongata-machi in Hachioji City is a recreational facility where you can experience both the outdoors and indoors associated with the season. In summer many families visit for BBQ, camping and playing in the river. In addition, a variety of scenery spreads out in the park every season. You can see colorful flowers in spring, colored leaves in autumn, and woodland scenery close to the village in winter.
Furthermore, there are “Fureai-hiroba (a meeting place with small animals)” where you can interact with small animals such as rabbits and guinea pigs. There is a permanent exhibition of Nakamura Uko (a lyricist of nursery songs) of the song “Yuyake Koyake”, and a restaurant for seasonal dishes using fresh vegetables from local farmers and handmade soba. This is a fun place no matter when you visit.
