This is the "Fruit Orchestra" playground at the Hamamatsu Fruit Park in Shizuoka Prefecture. The highlight of the playground is the long slide extending from the top of the four story high pineapple. As it's designed for kids, the slope is pretty mild. I wasn't able to make it down without stopping one or twice along the way. The Fruit Park also has several groves, where you can pick your own fruit depending on the season.

Meet Hachimaru, Nagoya City's samurai mascot. He just happened to be visiting Matsumoto Castle last week while I was there. Hachimaru was born the same time as Nagoya City about 400 years ago. He has 3 dorky friends which fortunately did not come to Matsumoto with him. Hachimaru was super friendly, throwing poses and taking photos with anyone who wanted one.
This is Mokko, mascot character of the Alps Azumino National Government Park in Nagano Prefecture. She's 14 years old and likes birdwatching. Nice try, but not even close. This character is far from cute, which is a requirement for any mascot in Japan. The park was great, just please send Mokko to the wood chipper.
