Tips on visiting Japan with your family

Are you visiting Japan with your children? Here is our advice and tips on where to go and activities that the whole family will enjoy from the youngest to oldest. 

Japan invites both young and old alike to use their imaginations, as in the wonderful world of Hayao Miyazaki, founder of Studio Ghibli and creator of Princess Mononoke, My Neighbor Totoro and Spirited Away.

With the influence of American culture, Japanese society has become somewhat infantilized. The growth and popularity of theme parks illustrate this headlong rush to the delight of fans of kawaii (cute) culture and other popular characters like Hello Kitty. In Japan adults are often fans of video games and comics, for it is a country where manga and anime aren't just for children. Japan offers many interesting experiences, leading to good-natured confusion for some, and perhaps disturbing sights for others.
