Japan with Kids: Navigating Tokyo with a ‘Tween
Here’s my 30 April San Antonio Express-News article about family travel to Tokyo with a ‘tween (preteen, roughly ages 9-12.)
I talk about visiting Harajuku, Miyazaki’s Studio Ghibli and Odaiba plus climbing Mount Fuji.
More detailed postings about Tokyo to come, over the next few months.
There was also a sidebar about Yokohama that didn’t make it online, but here is my blog post about it.
Hope you enjoy it along with my other Tokyo blog posts.
Update 5 June 2006: I found a good overview for a week-long Japan trip with Budget Travel Online’s Trip Coach — take a look here.
Update 02 December 2006: Here’s a detailed story on BootsnAll about climbing Mount Fuji.
Update 08 January 2007: From Ampontan, a blog about Japan, is a detailed post about Japanese matsuri, or festivals. Great fun if you can see one while you’re visiting.
