Kit Kat Chocolatory, Japan, Tokyo, Candy, Kit Kat, Traveling with Kids, Family Travel, Diapersonaplane, Diapers On A Plane, specialty flavors
We thought that the Kit Kat Chocolatory in Japan would be like touring the See’s Candies Factory in San Francisco, California or the Maison Cailler Chocolaterie in Broc, Switzerland. We thought it would be a great place to take the kids and let them sample all the chocolate, see how it is made, and discover it doesn't just magically...
Hello Kitty, Sanrio, Shinjuku, Flagship store, family travel, traveling with kids, diapersonaplane, Diapers On A Plane,
Tokyo was the last stop on our Japan trip. We previously spent time in Hiroshima, and Kyoto, and in Kyoto we told the kids a spontaneous bedtime story about Konichiwa Kitty and Sayonara Dog. Gabriel told the story and I sang the song, which I determined later ended up sounding a lot like the tune of Keep the Commandments....
Tokyo Disneyland, Tokyo Disney Sea, traveling with kids, Family travel, Disney Themeparks, Mysterious Island, 20000 Leagues Under The Sea
Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo Disney Sea are the last parks our family crossed off our world Disney theme park tour. Tokyo Disney Resort took the #1 spot in our rankings, singularly because of Tokyo Disney Sea. ► Ranking: #cleandiaper Entering Disney Sea is truly like entering a fairy tale. There is a fiery roaring mountain, a mermaid lagoon and an Arabian...
Arisugawa, Arisugawa-no-miya Memorial Park, Memorial Park, Tokyo, Japan, Playground, Library
The 16 acre Arisugawa-no-Miya Memorial Park located amidst the hectic Japanese streets offers a tranquil break from the mad rush of everyday life in Tokyo. Beyond the statues, streams, waterfalls and walking trails, within its grounds is a three tiered children’s playground and the Tokyo Metropolitan Central Library. It's a wonderful place for families to read, play, and take...

We love observing every city we visit from a panoramic view: Coit Tower in San Francisco, California; Space Needle in Seattle, Washington; Willis Tower in Chicago, Illinois; CN Tower in Toronto, Canada; Plaça d’Espanya in Barcelona, Spain; and our favorite The Great Barrier Reef in Cairns, Australia (posts coming soon). Our list is quite extensive and it doesn’t stop...

Kiddyland is located in the Omotesando district of Tokyo, a short walk from the Harajuku district and Takeshita Dori. It is a 5 story building full of toys, novelty items, knick knacks, pool toys, towels, and assorted paraphernalia. They have something for everyone, including Japanese branded toys. Some sections are a bit smaller than others, but you can easily...
Ninja Akasaka dinner, Themed Dinner, Tokyo themed dinner, themed dinner restaurant, diapersonaplane, Diapers On A Plane, Traveling with Kids, Family Travel, Ninja
Walking around Tokyo, trying to find a place to eat everyday, it was surprisingly hard. Many restaurants in Tokyo don’t allow children, many are obscure, then there is the language barrier so we likely passed a ton of restaurants without knowing it, lots are reservations only, closed during specific hours, or themed dinner restaurants booked days to weeks in...
Pick pocketed in japan, shinjuku, Don Quixote, safe travels, lesson learned, Tokyo, Japan
Shopping in Japan means having a bunch of cash on you at all times; hardly anyone takes cards. And that is where our story begins: Our Family Was Pick Pocketed in Japan.  ► Ranking: #stinkydiaper A couple days earlier we had been by the Don Quijote in Shinjuku East, because we had heard they were a great place for novelty items,...
Cat Cafe MoCHA, Traveling with Kids, family travel, japan, asia, Takeshita Dori, Harajuku, Family Travel, Diapers on a plane, diapersonaplane, crepes
Takeshita Dori is one single, pedestrian, shop lined, street in the Harajuku District. It is bustling and full of people. The shops are eccentric and eclectic, and come in full variety of shapes and sizes. Located near Omotesando and the Meiji Shrine, you can spend a full day here exploring to your heart’s content with lots of shops your...
Cat Cafe, Cat Cafe MoCHA, Harajuku, Takeshita Dori, Child Friendly, Diapers On A Plane, diapersonaplane,
We were very intrigued by the notion of a Cat Cafe when we visited Japan. At first it seemed so foreign to us that people would go to a place to play with cats, rather than just have a pet at home. Then we discovered that most places to live in Japan don't allow pets, even though Japanese culture revolves...
