Naeba Survival Game Field

A survival game is a new sport out of Japan in which you square off with teammates against an enemy team in a special ground. Using airsoft and BB guns, the basic rule is that you are out of the game when struck with a pellet. There are generally no referees, with the players themselves left to manage gameplay.
Here in Naeba, the unique terrain of the ski slopes is used to create an undulating outdoor field. The trees and bushes, along with obstacles like cable cars and equioment, serve to complicate the playing field. There are also full accommodation facilities provided, letting you play from morning through night. This is a benefit you’ll find only at a resort destination. You can also rent a full set of equipment.
Booking is required through Tel: (03)6435-3339
