Japan Family Vacations | Ciao Bambino!

A vacation to Japan is a dream for families who want to introduce their children to a new and exotic culture, yet be surrounded by modern, kid-friendly amenities. This includes the efficient high-speed train system that whisks visitors to all the top sights. Don’t miss over-the-top Tokyo, where families can experience traditional sights like temples, shrines and the Imperial Palace gardens, but also fun and whimsical shopping areas, animation studios and Hello Kitty cafes. Mt. Fuji is a day trip away, or stay longer if you want to incorporate active elements like biking and hiking. Then escape to Kyoto, widely considered the most beautiful city in Japan and the best place to immerse yourself in Japanese culture.

While modern hotels with kid-friendly amenities are found throughout the country, be sure to try a ryokan for a night or two. Many families consider these traditional inns to be a memorable highlight of their trip to Japan.
