    Default Tokyo for kids...

    Hi, We'll be travelling to Tokyo in either mid June or early July with our four years old daughter. Any places of interest (besides Disneyland) or activities that's good for her? Thanks.

    Disneyland, Disneysea, Disneyland, Disneysea. Good enough for 4 year old.

    Can also try Tsukiji market, and visit neighbouring Hakone - lots of whimsical little museums (eg Little Prince, outdoor sculptures etc).

    There's also Tobu World Square near Kinugawa (Nikko) which has many miniature models of famous buildings around the world. Worth a day trip, definitely.

    Will be quite hot in June or July though.

    It had to be that period as we are doing a stopover on our way to the USA. Thanks for your suggestions.

    Nekobukuro, located on the eighth floor of Tokyu Hands' Ikebukuro branch, is a place with cats that are fed and taken care of while they roam about

    Have thought of that and we would like to stay in a Ryokan too. So your suggestion may tie along with the ryokan stay.

    Have also thought of staying in the ryokan in the city but dun think they will be as good as those in the outskirt! Thks.

    In the city? Well, there's always Oedo Onsen Monogatari in Tokyo that's decorated like the old Edo Period style (minus Samurai though).

    Well, u can pop over to here as a reference for hotel stays and other trip information.

    yah...I know what you mean but when we are out window shopping, she's pretty ok ...though she would occasionally drop hints like "next time you buy for me" or "to buy it for her baby brother" etc.

    Hmm.... I dun think u can see and take photos of the tuna auctions and stuff like dat anymore.

    But if u do, I guess nothing would irk them where flashes and touchy-touchy are concerned. ISO1600, long lens, a steady hand and discretion might just earn the keeper shots while not annoying the fishermen.

    We have been travelling with my little gal since she was 11mths old. The haversack that we go jalan jalan with, contain mostly her things and one pns camera plus a digicam (if its not too full)! So I dun think we'll be a distraction to the auctioneer and his bidders.

    Will bring along a tube of wasabi to go with the maguro and whatever that didn't swim away! yum yum... : )
