山城総合運動公園太陽が丘 • Yamashiro Sports Park at Taiyou ga Oka Here’s a recommendation for beating the summer heat in Kyoto. It’s open July 15 – August 31.
I had thought there was a simple public pool at this huge sports complex in Uji, Kyoto, but it turns out there is a really fun water park for kids that will save you time and money compared to going to “The Boon” at Hirakata Park. There is a huge main pool with artificial rock waterfalls, a gentle wave pool, simulated stream, and others. There is plenty of grass for picnicking, wit umbrellas already in place. concession stands sell food and drink, as well as pool toys, sun block, sandals, etc. A separate 25-meter pool and diving center is available at separate admission rates. numerous other outdoor recreation opportunities are available, including an outdoor playground for kids and ballfields.
Admission to the family pool (scroll down to ファミリープール) is ¥1000 for adults, ¥700 for high school students, ¥450 for elementary school and middle school students, ¥100 for infants and toddlers.
Access is by bus bound for Taiyo ga Oka from Keihan Uji Station.
