Japan Holidays

Best 1 week Itinerary in Japan with KIDs  also for Adults

Japan is an extremely safe country, with excellent public transportation and new sights, sounds and tastes to behold around every corner.

For a one-week trip, we suggest an itinerary that pairs Tokyo and Kyoto. Seven days on the ground is enough to cover both places, and these locales provide a fantastic contrast.

Five nights in Tokyo and two in Kyoto will leave ample time to explore Tokyo itself or add a day trip to Hakone, Kamakura or Tokyo Disneyland. This guide will help you to plan your tour.

Picture Kids and Parent

Days 1-5 in Tokyo!

In greater Tokyo, there are more than 1,000 neighbourhoods. The majority of tourist sites are centrally located and fairly easy to navigate. Notable exceptions are Tokyo Disney, Tokyo Skytree (and its Sumida Aquarium), Tokyo Tower, the Tokyo Toy Museum and the Lego Discovery Center.

Asakusa

Home to many key sites as well as shopping and dining, Asakusa is the top spot for many visitors. Kids of all ages will enjoy the unique architecture of Senso-ji, the most popular and famous temple in Tokyo. Don’t miss Nakamise Dori, a shopping street leading up to the temple that is an ideal place to shop for souvenirs and gifts.

Next, consider a visit to Tokyo Sky Tree, the tallest tower in Japan, located across the Sumida River from Asakusa. The tower is used to broadcast radio and TV, but has two observation decks that offer sweeping views of Tokyo and a vast shopping complex complete with an aquarium.

Ueno

Home to Ueno Station, one of the largest access points for travel around Japan, Ueno is also home to parks and several cultural sites. There are several family highlights in Ueno — most notably, Ueno Park, which features Shinobazu Pond with its lotus pond and rental boats, as well as the popular Ueno Zoo (giant pandas are the star). Ueno also inclues the National Museum of Science, which offers animal, space and dinosaur exhibits as well as a 3D theater.

Families will enjoy strolling around Ame-ya Yoko-Cho market, which originally cropped up as a place for selling sweets (ame) . Today, it is a huge bazaar that sells everything from chocolate to luggage.

Akihabara

Akihabara is the spot in Tokyo for all things electronic. Older kids will delight in the dizzying array of stores with every conceivable gadget and gizmo. For model train enthusiasts, Popondetta is a shop with a huge array of model trains. On the second floor, there is a Tokyo-themed model track that customers can rent by the hour.

Although not technically in Akihabara, the nearby Tokyo-Edo Museum (Ryogoku station) is a great place for families to learn about the Edo period in Japan (from 1603-1867) and what life was like during that time. Families flock here for the many well-signed models and exhibits that bring this time period to life.

Imperial Palace District

This neighborhood is the seat of government in Tokyo. Its center is, of course, the Imperial Palace, but it is only open to visitors twice a year. The Imperial Palace East Garden does welcome visitors and is a popular spot for families. This area is easily accessed from most all of the neighborhoods mentioned, so it is a perfect place to tack on if you have the time.

Harajuku

Famed for its funky vibe and street style for Tokyo youth, Harajuku is home to many, many popular fashion shops and cafes. Harajuku will be a hit with teenagers looking to shop and explore. Kiddyland is a local favorite for its shops teeming with dolls, action figures, superheroes and other toys. Consider checking out one of the many conveyor-belt sushi shops for lunch or dinner.

Shinjuku

Shinjuku is the epitome of central Tokyo: skyscrapers, neon lights, lots of people and plenty of amenities. Shinjuku has several luxury hotels that are well-suited for families and this neighborhood makes for an ideal home base.

Roppongi

Known for its central location and vibrant nightlife, Roppongi is another convenient neighborhood for family accommodations. The Ritz-Carlton Tokyo is actually attached to the Roppongi station.

Shibuya

Shibuya is a bustling neighborhood known for its mix of department stores, shops, clubs and restaurants. This area makes for a great place to call home in Tokyo, and families can consider the Cerulean Tower Tokyo Hotel.

Dedicated to the spirit of Emperor Meiji, who died in 1912, and his wife, Empress Shoken, Meiji Shrine is one of the biggest tourist spots in the city. 

Another beloved stop in Shibuya is the Hachiko statue. Hachiko was a dog known for being extremely loyal to his master, whom he walked to the station each day. 

Yoyogi Park is a source of entertainment unto itself. Besides the green space that beckons kids of all ages and a cycling center for renting bikes, you will also be treated to plenty of interesting people-watching. 

Tsukiji

Tsukiji is best known as the home of the world-famous Tsukiji fish market. Families willing to get up super early can line up for the daily live auction (except for Sundays), starting at 4:30a at the Kachidoki entrance. For those who prefer a later start, there is still plenty of action to see throughout the morning and lots of places to grab a sushi breakfast — Sushi Dai and Sushizanmai are popular.

Ginza

Originally the home of Tokyo’s banking district, Ginza (Japanese for silver mint) is known for luxury shopping, restaurants and entertainment. If you are in the market for pearls, the Mikimoto flagship store is located here.

Odaiba

Located near the Port of Tokyo, Odaiba is known as a family entertainment and amusement district. A popular attraction for families is the Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation, which captivates with cutting-edge exhibits like Asimo the walking robot — all with excellent English explanations.

Days 6-7: Kyoto

The train trip from Tokyo to Kyoto alone will be a highlight for young and old alike. The famous shinkansen (bullet train) whisks passengers more than 318 miles in under three hours. Getting around Kyoto is much simpler than in Tokyo, as taxis are plentiful and the historic district is fairly compact.

To get an authentic feel for Kyoto in two days, we suggest visiting the following sights:

Kinkakuji. Kids will enjoy seeing this temple made of gold.

Nijo-jo Castle. Check out where a shogun lived and test the hummingbird floor that alerts occupants to intruders.

Kiyomizu, definitely the most interesting temple in Kyoto. You’ll see many visitors wearing kimono and the scenery is beautiful. Pair with a walk along the adorable sannen and ninen zaka lanes lined with souvenir shops.

Ginkakuji. Visit the Temple of the Silver Pavilion, and perhaps take a walk with older children along the mile-long Philosopher’s Path that begins there.

Sanjusangendo. This temple is famous for its 1,001 statues of Kannon, the goddess of mercy.

Nishiki Market. Kyoto’s covered 400-year-old food market is a good choice for wandering on a rainy day.

Fushimi Inari Shrine, famous for its thousands of red torii gates that continue along a 4-kilometer path.

  2. Hello, i think that i saw you visited my web site so i came to “return the favor”.I’m trying to find things to improve my web site!I suppose its ok to use a few of your ideas!!

  3. Howdy would you mind stating which blog platform you’re working with? I’m going to start my own blog soon but I’m having a hard time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something unique. P.S Apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!

  4. This is the ri강원랜드카지노
    ght webpage for anybody who hopes to find out about this topic.
    You understand so much its almost tough to argue with you (not that I personally would want to…HaHa).
    You definitely put a brand new spin on a subject that has been written about for many years.
    Excellent stuff, just wonderful!

  5. It’s appropriate time to make some plans for the
    future and it is time to be happy. I’ve read this post and if
    I could I desire to suggest you few interesting things or tips.
    Maybe you could write next articles referring to this article.
    I desire to read more things about it!

  6. Thank you for this article. I will also like to express that it can often be hard when you’re in school and merely starting out to initiate a long history of credit. There are many scholars who are simply just trying to live and have a long or beneficial credit history can occasionally be a difficult issue to have.

  9. I’ll right away take hold of your rss as I can’t in finding your email subscription hyperlink or e-newsletter service.
    Do you’ve any? Please permit me know so that I may subscribe.

  10. Ted: if you are willing to serve on a committee to help with this debacle, and you aren’t invited to serve, then we obviously need new leadership all around. Maybe some people who are more concerned with the truth and facts and a lot less concerned with posturing for their own benefit. Who would be so cowardly as to keep you away from the table?

  19. Hi there, i read your blog from time to time and i own a similar one and i was just curious if you get a lot of spam responses? If so how do you reduce it, any plugin or anything you can recommend? I get so much lately it’s driving me mad so any support is very much appreciated.

  20. Юные а так же взрослые девушки вовсе абсолютно не знают абсолютно ни какой границы. Они умеют отсосать принадлежности понравившихся молодых людей прямиком на улице. Такие милочки суют пенисы предельно поглубже в ротики, а после этого с усладой смакуют вкусную сперму. Темноволосые и белокурые модели снимают трусы рядом с камерой в пользу того чтобы подрючиться в ароматные промежности и упругие аналы. Этакий медиа-контент заводит нимало далеко не меньше чем эротические видео. Убедиться в этом деле вы сможете прямо немедленно. Зарубежное а так же передаст вас, что на самом деле полный сильный разврат. Не упустите удобный случай нагнать настоящий кайф и вздрочнуть свой пенис.
    Вы можете легко в любое оптимальное свободное время вкушать радость красивой эротикой да жесткой еблей. Тут мы собрали картинки, те что удовлетворят всякие пожелания. Милые цыпочки они не лишь оголяются перед фотокамерой. Они склонны принимать участие в самых этих групповухах. Данные нимфоманки сумеют обрабатывать по множеству больших елдаков. От двойного проникновения в довольно-таки распяленные дырочки телочки получат довольно неслыханные струйные оргазмы. Крупным планом заметно, как из вибрирующих щелок выбиваются струи жидкости.
    Не менее занятно смотреть за прекрасными представительницами нестандартной половой ориентации. Категория с лесбухами постоянно пользуются заслуженной известностью для парней. Игривые девушки желают облизывать нежные щелочки, а не посасывать жилистые пенисы. Подобные стонущие потаскушки постоянно достигают необыкновенного экстаза. В пользу того чтобы приумножить ощущения девушки часто практикуются с вибраторами и дилдо.

  23. I comment when I like a post on a site or I have something to contribute to the conversation. It’s caused by the sincerness displayed in the article I browsed. And after this article CF Colors v 2.1, Post Formats Admin UI v1.3.1, and Social v2.10 : alexking.org. I was excited enough to leave a comment 😛 I do have a couple of questions for you if you do not mind. Could it be just me or does it look as if like some of these comments look like they are coming from brain dead folks? 😛 And, if you are posting on other sites, I would like to keep up with everything fresh you have to post. Could you list all of all your social sites like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?
