Love Japanese trains? Then you simply must ride the Shinkansen to the Railway Museum! Located in Omiya, Saitama Prefecture, the Railway Museum is the perfect Tokyo day trip for railfans, big and small, young and old.
Little Kaiju and I are certainly enjoying fall in Tokyo! On the heels on our Tokyo DisneySea adventure, we were back in action. Our most recent Tokyo day trip took us across the river for some Tokyo shitamachi strolling and mid-autumn delights in Kameido, in Koto Ward.
Little Kaiju finally made her “Disney debut!” (ディズニーデビュー | dizini- debyu-) at 20 months old! Overall, our first family visit was a success, so I’m sharing 10 Tips for a magical day at Tokyo DisneySea with a toddler.
Right underneath Kasai Station on the Tozai line is a museum where kids and adults can learn about the history of Japan’s first metro system through interactive exhibits. Ready for some hands-on fun at the Tokyo Metro Museum? Here’s a photo diary from our latest visit!
It’s almost September and cooler temperatures are sneaking up on us (finally!). And while I’m definitely looking forward to pairing lots of delicious savory foods with sweet and hot drinks, I’m also looking forward to completing the rest of my 18 professional and personal goals for 2018. One goal in particular is my passion — travel.
Today is Umi no Hi (Ocean Day) which unofficially means that summer has started in Japan! Unfortunately, the rising temperatures might discourage you from heading out with your little ones. I‘ve rounded up a few fun ways to beat the heat if you’re wondering how to spend summer in Tokyo with a baby or toddler.
Summer in Japan means three things: beaches, matsuri, and fireworks. We’ve already gotten out beach fix with our trip to Isshiki Kaigan (with more beach time to come when we visit the in-laws in Ibaraki in a few weeks.) Next on our summer to-do list is attend a few matsuri, starting with my favorite, the Edogawa Goldfish Matsuri.
It’s not quite yet summer, but that didn’t stop the monster and me from enjoying a day in the sun at Isshiki Beach in Hayama, Kanagawa Prefecture.
This past Saturday, the monster and I traveled from one end of Tokyo to the other. We ventured 60 km west all the way to Hino city. Our destination? Keio Asobi no Mori HUGHUG!
