Exploring Japan with kids is one of my favorite things to do. My kids were born in Tokyo, and we lived there from 2001 to 2013.

Enjoy Japan…With Kids or Without

We still return regularly. After all, half of our family live in or around Osaka, Keiko’s hometown. Moreover, I still co-write a column for the Japan Times about family fun in Japan. Japan is safe, culturally rich and full of fun, educational and fascinating activities for kids (and parents) of all ages. Family travel in Japan is easy and not nearly as expensive as you might think.
