Play with Tires!! Nishi Rokugo Park


In this article,I introduce around Kamata station.
I heard there is an interesting park.

I got off train at “Kamata” station.
This station is JR and Tokyu line’s station.
There is “Keikyu Kamata” station near from here.
But “Kamata” station is nearer to today’s destination.
“Kamata” and “Keikyu Kamata”, they are similar name, but different station.

From Kamata station, only to walk along railway about 15 minutes.(a little far!) I walked  from JR Kamata station, but if go by Keikyu line, nearest station is Zoshiki station. It’s about 10 minutes walk.
Blue train is JR Keihin Tohoku Line.  Here is long straight railway, so trains are seen well. Good for train watching.

Here is the destination,”Nishi Rokugo Park”.
Some large objects are seen! They are made from tires! Here is also called as tire park!
Old tires are made good use here.

I felt here is so creative.
Because one tire is only one circle. But if they are piled up, they become cool and interesting objects.
Making from simple things to complex thing, this process is creative.
I felt this park is teaching that process for children.
I hope that children invent their new way to playing with tires.
Actually I don’t like well prepared way to playing.
Inventing from few simple things to large pleasure is the most interesting.
I thought this park is showing one example of that way for children.
Of course here is ecology too.

And one more. Here is roof top of Tokyu Plaza Kamata, small amusement park “Kamataen”. It is located at roof top of Kamata station.
There is Happy Ferris Wheal. It’s small, but loved by people for the long time.
In clear day, Mt.Fuji is seen from ferris wheel.
Large cushion in front is also looks fun!
Here is also rest place. It may good to drop in when visit Kamata.
