Make a unique kaleidoscope with Japanese designs in Minokamo, Gifu Prefecture. This hands-on experience is held in Gifu Seiryu-Satoyama Park, previously known as Japan Showa Village—an oasis of nature and culture experiences in central Japan.
Gifu Seiryu-Satoyama Park, previously known as Japan Showa Village, is a free-to-enter park in Minokamo, Gifu Prefecture. This park in the middle of Japan is a wonderful place to enjoy both the surrounding nature, and the traditional culture represented by Showa-era buildings and the cultural activities offered in the park. In this selected activity, you will get hands-on making a kaleidoscope, using decorative Japanese designs for a unique souvenir to take away. You’ll also enjoy lunch included in the price, at any restaurant in the park. Try traditional Japanese foods at places like the Satoyama Canteen, cafe, Dango Tea Shop, bakery, farm restaurant, or soba noodle restaurant. While you’re in the park, you can also check out the many other experiences like making soba noodles, ziplining, go-karting, or even soaking in an ‘onsen’ hot spring spa! The park has numerous amenities from the modern to the traditional, and you can easily enjoy a full day here trying more activities, shopping for souvenirs, or just relaxing in nature.
