Every Disney Park Across the Globe Ranked Best to Worst, Which Disney Park is the Best Favorite Disneyland
Our journey to discover the best Disneyland in the world has been a magical one. A journey that has taken us from the snow capped mountains of the Matterhorn to 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea. We've traveled over 23,000 miles, over a span of five years, to be able to pronounce: Mickey Accomplished!  Our family has celebrated, rejoiced and played...

Flavored popcorn is all the rage in Tokyo Disney, and something that cannot be missed! Flavors range from Curry to Chocolate and you can have it all! Heck, you can even mix it together if you really want to take it to another level! But no matter how you eat it, you can't go to Tokyo Disney and not...

When we visited Japan we knew exactly what we wanted to do in both Hiroshima and Kyoto. They were easy - they had designated attractions that were obvious and historical. Places we couldn't miss! But when it came to planning our adventures in Tokyo, we were at a loss. Tokyo has no distinctive genre of attractions. It’s a melting...

The ultimate touristy thing to do, when in Japan, is cross the Shibuya Scramble Crossing. This intersection has five different dedicated crosswalks intersecting six different streets below five different city stop lights. All at once, every single light turns red and pedestrians rule the road. The internet claims that Starbucks offers the best view of the Shibuya Scramble Crossing from...

The Japanese have a wildly different interpretation of how many people can comfortably stay in any place of residence, and what size towel is appropriate for drying off after showering. If you want a genuine cultural experience, sleeping in 4 bunk beds in an apartment the size of a walk-in closet, this is the Tokyo airbnb for you. Honestly,...
Tokyo Tower, Tokyo Metropolitan Building, Panoramic Views of Tokyo, Shinjuku, Travel with Kids, Diapersonaplane, Family Travel, Diapers On A Plane
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...
Tokyo Temple, Tokyo LDS Temple, Tokyo Mormon Temple, Family Travel, Traveling with Kids, Diapers On A Plane, diapersonaplane, Arisugawa Park
Where organized religion is all but disappeared in the Japanese culture, our family didn't want to miss visiting the LDS temple in Japan. Wherever possible our family makes a point of visiting a LDS temple on our travels. We want to show and teach our children that principles transcend all cultures, fads and history. It's important to stand for...
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...

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....

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...
