Leif - Kodomo no Mori, Zama, Japan - February 1981 - Age 6
Not far from the Camp Zama, Japan base was a park in the woods called Kodomo no Mori, which loosely translates as "children's woods." It had all kinds of interesting things to climb on, made from such things as large logs and huge ropes. There were trails and a maze to go through, too.
On a mild day in February 1981, when Leif was six years old, we went there for the afternoon and had a great time. It was the perfect place for Leif, who loved to climb. It was also a place to wear your "play clothes," because it was also a great place to get dirty.
We all had fun there, as we did so many places in Japan.
