Forest Adventure Hakone is a great place to enjoy the forest. One of my students works there.

Do you enjoy Zip Lines?!

There are different courses you can take depending on how old you are and your size.

The goal of these parks is to enjoy the forest in its natural state. Forest Adventure parks originated in France. From the website:

In 1997 Altus built a treetop course in France, initially just for corporate training, but it soon proved so popular that it was opened to the general public. It was so successful that the idea was exported abroad, and now similar courses can be found all over the world. The French name (La foret de l’aventure) was difficult for Japanese speakers to pronounce, so the English version was adopted in Japan – Forest Adventure. Pacific Network, in partnership with Altus, constructs these treetop courses throughout Japan.

Canopy Course:

Minimum Height: 110 cm

Maximum Weight: 130 kg

Children below the age of 8 must be accompanied by an adult. 1 adult can go with 5 children.

Adventure Course:

Minimum Height: 140 cm

Maximum Weight: 130 kg

Anyone below the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult. 1 adult can go with 2 children.

Check their website to be sure you can enjoy the courses, because sometimes they are cancelled to to inclement weather.

There is a Forest Adventure Park in Odawara and another one in Hakone.
