Luxury Family Holidays in Japan
Safe, clean, friendly and efficient, a family holiday to Japan ticks all the boxes. If you’re travelling with kids to Japan, teens will love the neon lights of Tokyo, especially its fashion-forward neighbourhoods like Shinjuku and Harajuku where anime characters literally walk the streets. Getting around on the subway or bullet train makes getting from A to B a breeze.
Kyoto is home to the International Manga Museum and the Kyoto Railway Museum for those train-obsessed toddlers! Subtropical Okinawa provides an antidote to big city bustle, offering relaxed cycling and beaches. For families who like to ride rollercoasters, amusement parks abound across Japan, including Tokyo Disney and Universal Studios Osaka.
Outdoorsy families can dive into skiing, snowboarding (or hiking and biking in the warmer months) in the mountains of Hokkaido and Honshu. While there are plenty of luxury apartments and hotels across Japan, children will adore staying in a traditional ryokan, sleeping on tatami mats and futons.
