I’ve been reflecting on my trip to Japan as it is nearly a whole 12 months since we departed! I was so unbelievably excited to be going as I had wanted to go for such a long time. I uploaded my Japan posts relatively soon after we got home and it only dawned on me this morning that I haven’t done a post on my top things to do in Tokyo with kids.
There are so many hotel options when travelling to Tokyo and to be honest it can seem a little overwhelming. The city is so big and hotels are notoriously expensive and the rooms are reportedly small. After plenty of research I also found that family rooms are difficult to come by and are on the expensive side.
DisneySea, the one and only of it’s type in the world was opened in September 2001 in Urayasu, Chiba just outside Tokyo. It is located right next to Tokyo Disneyland in the Tokyo Disney Resort and is accessible on the same train network. DisneySea was celebrating it’s 15th anniversary while we were there. We were very restricted time wise and were only able to visit DisneySea. We chose DisneySea purely because it is the only one.
If you’re planning to move between cities in Japan you’re best off purchasing a Japan Rail Pass, or JR Pass, it will save you a huge amount of money. It also includes some local travel in the cities which will also save you some money. Working out the rail system in Japan will take a little while but once you get the hang of it it’s fairly easy to navigate. Well lets say you will navigate it with minimal hiccups!! (Yes I’m giggling right now!).
