    A dream-like place where children can move around to their heart’s content, make things with their own hands, and enjoy themselves as they like. The approximately 35-hectare site is divided into a number of zones, including a library corner and a childcare consultation space. Events are held here, and restaurant dining facilities are located onsite as well, making this a place where parents and children can spend the whole day together without risking boredom.
    The Tobemori Zipline is located here as well, one of the largest in Shikoku with a total length of 730 meters! The dynamic course crosses over a pond from Ehime Kodomo-no-Shiro (“Ehime Children’s Castle”) and lands at the Tobe Zoo.

    * KOSHIRO ADVENTURE also opened here in March 2023, a wooden adventure course housed in two buildings with five floors. Visitors are offered 38 types of challenges to complete in their quest to reach the goal.
