What you'll do

Tokyo’s scale may look intimidating for a family vacation, but your host can show you alternative, more manageable ways to enjoy it. You could investigate miniature cities at the Edo-Tokyo Museum, and jettison everything you know about dress code with a cosplayer’s - gaming superfan - makeover in Akihabara. If you fancy living history, Tokyo’s aquariums can give you the deep dive you need, but nothing can prepare you for Sunshine Department Store’s flying penguins. A vivid high tea at an Alice in Wonderland Cafe might be in order, before nap time among the orchards of Yoyogi Park. Travel books will have you believe that Tokyo’s cuisine is an elaborate affair, but our local heroes know how to turn a bowl of ramen into a sumptuous slurp-fest!

Where you'll go

Flip the script on the Tokyo that you think you recognize, and discover a family-friendly city that caters to gamers, nature lovers and shopaholics of all ages. Our local hosts will show you their favorite playgrounds, like Ueno Park in the city center, where you’ll also get to gawk and gasp at Tokyo’s most remarkable zoo. Enter a virtual world in Akihabara, just a short walk from Ueono, conceive your own cosplay pop-culture costume in Harajuku, the youth cult fashion district, and have your sushi carted by train at a local kaitenzushi (conveyor belt sushi) restaurant. Recharge at a Pokémon Centre, or grab a zany, eccentric meal at an owl cafe. Tokyo is a dream machine, and our local insiders know all its secrets...
