From the Ota City TIC in Keikyu Kamata Station, the Hougaki Academy is a short walk or taxi ride away. If you’ve made reservations ahead of time, you can work up a sweat in a fun energetic taiko (Japanese drumming) lesson.
After your workout, fuel your body with some hanetsuki gyoza, a local specialty dumpling, at one of the Kamata area restaurants.
Return to the Keikyu Kamata station for a short train ride to Heiwajima. The Omori Nori Museum, which focuses on the region’s historical production of seaweed laver, makes for a fascinating visit, while the nearby park and beach at Omori Furusato Hamabi Park is an excellent place to relax in fine weather. If you still feel up to a challenge, tackle the ropes course at Heiwa no Mori Koen, where you can channel your inner Ninja Warrior on a variety of obstacles.
Unwind with a visit to Natural Onsen Heiwajima, one of Ota Ward’s many natural hot springs, before catching the monorail at Ryutsu Center Station back to Haneda for your flight out.
