Cat cafes are so last year. Head to Ra.a.g.f. to enjoy petting these softest and sweetest of cuddly bunnies. Or google Harry Hedgehog Café. Because MAX CUTENESS.
Welcome to Japan’s version of every kid’s dream – Tokyo Disneyland! DisneySea is the pick of the 2 resorts (right next door to Disney Resort) and if you’re heading on the weekend or on a public holiday check out the fantastic Starlight Passport for entry at 3pm and embrace the dream and the madness as the lights go down.
This is more like an underground shopping centre than a street. If you need to haul home a bunch of Hello Kitty or Pokémon gifts, this is the place to be.
This is basically every child of the 80's dream come true. "Race" go karts through the mean streets of Tokyo dressed as your favourite Mario character. Yoshi is the best! Go Yoshi!!!
This colour-crazy kiddie paradise features Miniland (a small lego version of Tokyo), games, factory tour, café, lego building, shop and a 4D cinema (you know, moving seats, wind blowing in your face, that kind of wacky thing).
Day or night, get up high in the sky(tree), the tallest structure in Japan, for a magnificent birds-eye view of Tokyo. If you pick the right day you’ll see the grand Mount Fuji and bring your passport if you want to skip the queues on a Fast pass.
Gain rare access to Sumo Stables to watch the Sumo in training. While you won’t get the pomp and ceremony of the grand tournaments, this is a gritty, authentic, unique experience that shouldn’t be missed
Immerse yourself in Japan's One Piece world, located at Tokyo Tower. For die hard manga fans it is totally epic! If you don't know One Piece, you may still enjoy checking out the ultimate in classic kid-teen manga culture.One Piece Site (Click the title above for bookings)
This is simply one of best ground-shaking, chest-pounding, culturally-astounding experiences in Japan. Book tickets well in advance to the Grand Tournament in Tokyo in Jan (or Osaka in March) or special events such as the Retirement ceremony in Feb. Great for the whole family, especially in a box seat (yes, it's totally worth it).
Visit Tokyo’s oldest, most colourful and popular temple. Enter through the ‘Thunder Gate’, stroll down a centuries-old shopping street before entering the grand Buddhist masterpiece. It’s nearby the Tokyo Skytree, Edo-Tokyo Museum and Sumo area if you want to make a day of it
Kabuki is an ancient cultural tradition of over-the-top dance drama theatre. If you don’t have the time (or patience) for a full performance, arrive 60-90 mins before a show to snap up a one-act ticket (and a translation device). Cheap, quick, great for kids. And awesome.
