This is my second participation this season. This time it was reserved for just one group, and it was a different kind of fun than last time. All the guides were friendly and kind, and I had a very good impression.

It was my first time participating. I was worried because it was raining, but I thought the weather had nothing to do with it. If only it rained on the day I participated... Everyone was able to return to their childhood with a natural smile and enjoy themselves. I would like to increase the number of members and participate again next year. thank you very much.
