Marimbatromic is held on the fourth Tuesday of every month for preschoolers and their parents. In this class, children can move their bodies in time with the music, make crafts with toys that make sounds, and come into contact with real musical instruments such as marimbas and drums. This is a very popular class with many repeaters.

Hasseiden Kyodo Shiryokan Tel: 622-2624 Fax: 622-2657
Now in its sixth year, the popular “Honmoku Series” events are held around four times a year. Starting with a lecture on visiting places that are not easy to visit on one’s own, such as 貨物 (Kamotsu) Station in 錦町 (Nishikicho) and the SL tour at横浜本牧 (Yokohama Honmoku) Station, we have learned about various aspects of the history of Honmoku. These events are possible because of the connections between the facilities.

Volunteer club making use of hobbies Handicraft Volunteer Shion
Inquiries ： Shinyamashita Community Care Plaza Tel: 625-1911 Fax: 625-1865
Shion started in 1992, the year in which Shinyamashita Community Care Plaza was established, and now meets on the first and third Thursday of every month. The twelve members of the group, all of whom are handicraft enthusiasts and live in the area, work together to produce handicrafts. We sell our products at local bazaars and donate the proceeds to charity. We enjoy making a variety of seasonal items and accessories. It is important for us to continue our volunteer activities for a long time. We try our best to keep up our activities as much as we can.

Community-based farming club America-zaka Farm
Inquiries ： Honmokuwada Community Care Plaza Tel: 622-1211 Fax: 622-1290
America-zaka Farm, which manages the farm at Honmokuwada Community Care Plaza, is a community activity club that grows vegetables. About three years ago, we advertised on the bulletin board at the Care Plaza, and the members that came along decided on the vegetables to be planted, the name of the farm, and the rules of the club. We also held a curry party using the vegetables we harvested with children from nearby kindergartens. The farm has helped to expand the community’s ties.
