Roller Slide!

I spent practically all day yesterday (and about $30 in train and bus tickets) traveling to and from Oume, a beautiful little city in western Tokyo.

Gardens and beautiful houses seen in Oume, Tokyo.

Why, you ask? Because according to Tokyo-Park.net, Kabokuen park was in Oume…

Kabokuen playground and it’s hiragana flower bed

…and Kabokuen has something American parks do not…

Roller slide!

I rode this thing probably seven or eight times before I had to catch my bus and begin the 2 hour trip back home. Worth it! The trick is to crouch and ride on your feet leaning forward. Some of the kids rode with a piece of cardboard underneath them but I didn’t see the need. Can’t wait to visit another park and ride some more. 😀
