Japan with Children

Japan is a playground for children. It is a world of robotics, pioneering technology, neon lights and make believe, confirming it as the perfect fairy tale destination for youngsters. Tales of ninjas, samurais and geishas will come to life from the moment you step foot in Japan, as you explore its futuristic cities, discover its fascinating history and uncover its ancient old traditions.

Japan with Children

Travelling around with little ones in tow often conjures up thoughts of unwanted stress on holiday, yet getting around Japan is exceptionally easy, and indisputably fun. With a reputation for fantastic customer service, an abundance of unique experiences and incredible safety, there is no better time to visit Japan’s shores on a family adventure.

In the cities, pop culture and neon streetscapes abound. High tech gizmos and gadgets can be found at every corner and with mind boggling museums, game centres, underground shopping malls, themed restaurants and amusement parks all sitting top of the bill, there is something to keep all ages entertained. Japan’s capital is a high rise metropolis which revels in innovation and pushes the boundaries of progress in all directions, ensuring teens are well catered for. Meanwhile, the bullet train is a superb way to entertain short attention spans. Not only are the high speed locomotives great for getting from A to B, but reaching white knuckle speeds as you whizz across the country is bound to be a holiday highlight.

Japan’s countryside promises much entertainment for children too. The world renowned hot springs, or onsens, are the perfect antidote to a stint in Japan’s bustling cities. Hunker down with the whole family in a ryokan or take to two wheels and explore the beautiful countryside on a bicycle. Getting a glimpse into daily life in rural Japan is an incredible contrast to its bustling cities and bound to captivate the imagination of youngsters. During winter, a visit to the hot spring resort, Yudanaka, will be rewarded with an encounter with snow monkeys. Watching these inquisitive animals frolicking in the eponymous onsen is a truly surreal spectacle for all. Elsewhere, get stuck in with the traditional crafts of Kanazawa; by creating a washi paper bookmark, dyeing your very own silk handkerchief or wrapping chop sticks in the region’s famed gold leaf.

Unique experiences are perhaps the best way to keep the whole family entertained and can be integrated into your holiday itinerary before you depart. By organising experiences in advance, you can rest assured that the interests and whims of every family member will be looked after. Try your hand at a martial art, calligraphy, origami, or taiko drumming before indulging at an all you can eat ice cream parlour for the ultimate family friendly day out in Japan.
