With a few hour wait before we could check-in to our cabin at Okuma and with the weather not on our side we decided to hit up the Yanbaru Forest Toy Museum as something dry to do with the kids.

The toy museum is basically a big room full of wooden toys; very similar to Casa Machilda and the girls loved it!

Even Matt & I had fun!  I challenged Matt to make a train out of the hexagon magnets which he accepted and it did start to look like a train but then he decided it was too tricky and instead we used every magnet to make a pattern on the wall.

We also loved the wooden ball pit, at one point all four of us were laying in it getting a bit of a back massage from the egg shaped balls.

I wouldn’t make a special trip up from central Okinawa to the toy museum but if you are at Okuma/northern Okinawa, and especially if its rainy, and you’re looking for something fun to this is a great little spot.

  1. What a cool looking place! I love that the toys are so simple and yet fun for the kids. Who needs lights and sound when you have a wooden ball pit to lay in?!

    • I have always liked wooden toys and that wooden ball pit was super comfy it was like getting a massage!

  2. That is really reasonable to go and play! Oh my gosh I would go all the time!!!! I love your control of your white balance and your light Hannah such a great job!!
