Japan with kids isn’t always the first-place people think of for a family holiday. That’s probably because a few myths are getting in the way.
The truth is, Japan is often thought of as being tricky to navigate and expensive compared to other destinations. Yet it’s anything but daunting for the family traveller.
One of the surprise highlights for so many travellers to Japan is how efficiently things tend to work. It’s easy to get around, even if you don’t speak Japanese. And contrary to popular belief, Japanese cuisine is more than just raw seafood. Japan’s food is so varied that children are spoilt for choice when it comes to mealtimes. Even for the fussiest of eaters.
Whether you’re travelling with young children or teenagers (or both!), Japan’s dynamic and eclectic culture has something for everybody. Here are all the highlights to help you start planning a family trip to Japan that your children will enjoy and remember forever.
