I found this back issue of ‘Senshoku Alpha’ magazine on my bookshelf that I’d picked up from a pile of unwanted books in my school library many years ago. The pictures of this amazing hand knitted playground installation always fascinated me and was the reason why I kept the magazine for so many years. I totally forgot about it until I went to the Hakone Open-air Museum this year and saw the ‘Woods of Net’.
How wonderful is this colorful climbing net playground designed by artist Toshiko Horiuchi Macadam. Unfortunately you’d have to be below 13 to play in this special playground but it is still a lovely sight!
