Interesting Japanese Playground Structures #4

Many of the parks and children’s playgrounds in Japan, particularly in Tokyo, are quite poor compared to other countries in terms of space, surroundings and a lack of grass. However, a handful of them do tend to possess extremely creative structures and they will be explored in this series.

Nickname: Beetle Slide

Location: 1-3-9 Nishi Sugamo

Nearest Station(s): 

Otsuka (8 minutes on foot) on the JR Yanamote Line


Disclaimer: Playgrounds are of course intended as fun and safe places for children to enjoy themselves so Tokyo Fox can not stress enough the importance of being considerate and cautious in such places.
