“Ikoi-no-mori” is surrounded by the nature of Kuno. On premises as large as 27ha, there is a camping site, a walk rally course, a bird golf course [18 holes (par 72)], as well as a multi-purpose hall and wood crafting workshop, encouraging various hobbies for enjoyment. A barbeque by the side of the river is especially popular.
This Ikoi No Mori Forest Adventure Park is a thrill seeker’s paradise, with wooden platforms, cables, zip lines, ropes and nets – all an average of 40 feet above the forest floor. They have colorful and torturous names such as Log Balance, Rail Track, Zigzag Bridge, and The Half Trapeze. That’s not to mention the Tarzan Swing, Spider Web and Amazon Bridge. Forest Adventure Park is surrounded by a huge children’s park, campgrounds and a botanical garden. It’s an ideal day trip, or campers can enjoy a weekend or more of adventure.
It is especially delicious to cook and eat outdoors under a blue sky.
