Today my son and I got out to Kamoyama Park in Niigata Prefecture, and climbed a little ways up the small mountain, to take a ride on one of his favorite roller slides. These slides are found all over Japan, and are one of the many wonderful things about the culture here, and its inextricable connection to nature. The enjoyment of fun and natural beauty. Not to mention the freedom and trust afforded to kids. A little risk is okay!
