New in 2013, there is a playground that can be seen from Route 16 before leaving Fussa. It is a bit convoluted to get to, but it is very close to the base and well worth the trip. There are tall, enclosed climbing structures that have imagination games written all over it. There is a zip line and a great tire swing. Put kids in clothes that they can get dirty because the ground underneath is just hard packed dirt. There are bathrooms and a water fountain where kids can clean up if needed. Playground GPS Coordinates: 35.72393, 139.342065. Parking lot GPS 35.722589, 139.343171.
DIRECTIONS: Leaving Fussa Gate, turn left onto Route 16. At the end of the Yokota fence line, where Route 16 curves right, exit toward Route 7 but don’t turn left onto Route 7. Instead go straight through the first light toward Haijima Station. There is a paid parking lot straight ahead. Park and this metal barrier will raise to trap your car. Pay at the kiosk to get out. From this parking lot it is an easy walk under Route 16 to the playground. – Alexandra Winkler & Sarah Straus, June 2013. Interested in another Fussa Playground?
