Act Forest

"Act Forest" grew on Act City, the symbol of Hamamatsu City.


Act City, adjacent to Hamamatsu Station, opened in 1994. The young saplings on the rooftop park at that time have grown up tall and have now become a nice forest. This rooftop park was named "Act Forest" and is open from 6:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. to make more people utilize the park as a common place for physical exercise, like walking, or as a place of communication. It is a luxurious space where you can relax, even in the city center.

Recommended methods for utilization

The course, "Chopin Hill" → "Forest Slope" → "Music Square" → "Recreation Square" → "Sun Square," is a walking course that takes about 20 minutes or 1.75 km there and back. Throughout the park, "maps of Act Forest" with current location and the course are displayed.


★Radio calisthenics

atm3.jpg At Music Square, visitors do radio calisthenics from 6:30 a.m. every morning. Radio calisthenics are a series of exercises for the purpose of improving strength, and for the maintenance and promotion of health, performed to the music on the radio. In Japan, kids learn the calisthenics at school, so most people from children to the elderly remember the exercises. Those who do not know the Japanese radio calisthenics can also participate with ease in the exercise as there is a staff member who serves as an example and gives instructions.
※ The calisthenics may not be performed depending on weather or other conditions.
