You could ring the bells at the interactive Kiyomizu-dera Temple in Eastern Kyoto, check out the view from Yasaka Pagoda less than one mile away, or head a little further north and explore the Botanical Gardens while the young ones zip down the playground slide. Nature-lovers may choose to head 30 minutes out of central Kyoto to Arashiyama Bamboo Grove, where forest walks and a visit to Iwatayama Monkey Park are sure to keep the whole family entertained. Hungry? Your local insider will be happy to scope out the best family-friendly restaurants in the district – and decipher the kids’ menus. When it’s time for dessert, keep sweet teeth happy with Kyoto’s famous melonpan ice-cream or funky flavored shaved ice - why not try the bamboo?
“But will the kids enjoy it?” You won’t have to ask again. Your host has it covered, and now the whole family – you included – is guaranteed a stress-free, kid-approved vacation. Temple-hopping across central Kyoto could get really old really, really quickly for the kids, but a bullet train driving simulation at the Kyoto Railway Museum? Yes, please! Give the kids a lesson in comic book drawing at the International Manga Museum, or let them learn the traditional art of samurai swordsmanship at the Kyoto Samurai Experience. A kimono class is a perfect way to appreciate Japanese culture and dress up in something beautiful, or a dolphin show at the aquarium is an ideal end to an eventful, educational, and, above all, exciting family adventure.
