Fun Things to Do With Children
There are many fun and convenient things to do with kids in Yokosuka. Here are a few ideas:
Check with the Community Center and Youth Center for different classes such as music and dance lessons and craft classes.
Also check out Purdy Fitness Center for classes, such as stroller exercise classes, Mommy-n-me gymnastics for toddlers, and swim lessons for babies and older children.
Fleet and Family Support Center provides directions to many different places to go with children. (You can download them from the CFAY website as well.)
The local Japanese mall Daiei (pink mall right next to base) has an indoor play area on the second floor that is great for children under 5. It is 500 yen to play all day (with shopping breaks, of course.)
There are so many parks and beaches for children and they are easy to find.
Don’t hesitate to ask any parent at the play areas what you can do with your little ones. Everyone here was new once and they can help you out.
Kids can really thrive here and enjoy the culture as much as you can. They can also make it easier for you to meet friends through them!
