Create incredible memories in this fascinating land of contrasting cultures

Discover Japan's magic as a family: from Tokyo's exciting attractions, to Kyoto's cultural history, and Hokkaido's natural wonders, create unforgettable moments together.

Japan's diverse attractions provide something for everyone. Start your journey in Tokyo, a city where traditional culture meets futuristic technology. Explore bustling neighbourhoods like Shibuya and immerse yourselves in the dazzling lights of Akihabara and its amazing arcade game towers.

For a more cultural experience, head to Kyoto, where you can wander through historic temples and stroll along the serene Philosopher's Path. Children and adults alike will be enchanted by the mesmerizing geisha culture and the chance to participate in tea ceremonies.

Nature lovers will find paradise in Hokkaido, with its stunning landscapes, including the pristine Lake Toya and the breathtaking lavender fields of Furano. In the winter, Hokkaido transforms into a snowy wonderland, perfect for skiing and snowboarding adventures. Take the family during the Sapporo Snow Festival in February to see amazing ice and snow sculptures and participate in fun winter sports and activities on offer.

No family trip to Japan is complete without exploring the enchanting world of Studio Ghibli at the Ghibli Museum in Mitaka. Step into the magical universe created by Hayao Miyazaki, a treat for fans of all ages.

Japan's culinary scene will also delight your taste buds. From sushi to tempura and ramen to okonomiyaki, there's something to satisfy every palate. Let your kids try their hand at making sushi in a fun and interactive cooking class, or try delicious Japanese desserts like daifuku (sweet-filled mochi balls), taiyaki (fish-shaped sweet-filled pancakes) or the famous souffle-style Japanese cheesecake.

Accommodation in Japan caters to families, with options like family-friendly hotels and spacious apartments. Head to a ryokan and try out an onsen with your family for a cultural experience, complete with tatami-matted rooms and delicious Japanese meals.

Japan's safety, cleanliness, and efficient public transportation make it a hassle-free destination for families. Let us at Far & Wild help you plan the perfect family holiday in Japan.
