Grinpa is not only for snow-playing. There are mainly 2 character zones in which kids and even their parents can enjoy.
“M78 Ultraman Park” is the amusement park especially for kids. You know Ultraman, by the way ? It’s a kind of Japan’s leading hero show that started from 40 years ago and regarded now as one of the greatest TV show that would never pass away. You can find in the park lots of cute Ultraman figures, and varieties of Ultraman goods are available in “SHOT M78” gift shop. Some are purchasable only in Grinpa. Find them for your friends ! ＾＾
There also is a wonderful restaurant ”M78 Planet Dining” where you can find Ultraman curry or noodle. I, without question, stepped into it but, because too many kids had been sitting at the table or still standing in line awaiting being served, I changed my plan to go to another place for lunch.＾＾； By the way, though I basically avoid attraction rides in the play-lands because I really feel scared about them, I dared then take a Ferris Wheel to see the fantastic view ! You know why ? This stands at the highest point in Japan ! You can see, not to mention Mt. Fuji, even Suruga Bay if weather permits. That day was not for the Suruga Bay, though……＾＾；
“Sylvanian Village” is mostly for girls. I knew it only by name, because you know, I was a boy, but “Sylvanian Family” is really popular among girls in Japan and this area is themed on it with dolls and doll-houses. I for the first time in my life see it closest and found all characters really adorable, which made me almost buy one of them.＾＾； Anyway, I stepped into the restaurant of Sylvanian Village “Mori no Kitchen” ( Kitchen in the forest ).
And this is what I got for lunch. Girls would shout with joy ! These dishes were really good for an amusement park. On the rice is drawn a cat, maybe, with curry sauce. Cute, isn’t it ? ＾＾

After having lunch enough, I dropped at “Mori-no Pan-ya-san” ( A bakery in the woods ) to buy some souvenirs and got into the Sylvanian Family Shop, “Mori-no Market” ( A market in the woods ) to buy Miss Milk Rabbit, nope, I didn’t ! ＞＜ In the Sylvanian Village, other than shops and restaurants, you can find lots of life-size Sylvanian characters, houses and a school which definitely would take you to the world of Fantasy ! In spring, varieties of flowers will bloom abound. Please enjoy steeping yourself in the dreamy world with Mt. Fuji, flowers, and Sylvanian friends ! ＾＾
