Han'no-gawara is a spacious riverbed, located by the Iruma River in the Saitama Prefecture, surrounded by nature. Only an hour away from central Tokyo, many families come every year to enjoy the day camping. In spring, people view cherry blossoms, and in summer, many enjoy playing in the shallow part of the river. Summertime events include firework festivals and goldfish scooping in the river. In the fall, you can view the autumn foliage and pick a few pieces of maple leaves to take home. The riverbank provides visitors with a wide range of recreation throughout the year. Also, the entire Han'nogawara riverbank can be used as a barbecue area. No reservation is required, so anyone can set up and enjoy cookouts. The barbecue equipment is available for rent, and various barbecue ingredients, charcoals, firewood, canned beers, and ice are for sale for those who might be a bit unprepared. Rental boats are available at the Nagurigawatei boating facility, located in upstream, for those who want to ride on a boat. The Agatsuma Valley is located further upstream from Nagurigawatei and is famous as a spectacular fall foliage viewing spot. It is just a 15-minute walk from the Hanno station on the Seibu Ikebukuro Line.
