Your Tokyo Family Vacation
Anime, Manga & Sushi – All three favorites of our youngest daughter.
Our family, of which 2 out of 4 are huge Anime fans, can’t wait to visit Japan one day.
With previous and ongoing travel restrictions, our plans for a fun-filled Japan family vacation have been postponed many times now.
So now we are expecting to go in May 2022, fingers are crossed! Time to dig a bit deeper into everything Tokyo has to offer for kids and teens.
The recent launch of the Summer Extravaganza at Four Seasons Hotel Tokyo at Marunouchi is something you have to hear about.
At this Tokyo-based five-star boutique hotel, kids are VIP’s in their own right.
“Our boutique Hotel is extremely family-friendly, which is rare among luxury properties in Tokyo”— CHARLES FISHER – GENERAL MANAGER FOUR SEASONS HOTEL TOKYO AT MARUNOUCHI
Indoor Summer Fair for Families
This summer (scheduled for August 9-15, 21-22, and 28-29, 2021), there’s even an Indoor Summer Fair in the Four Seasons Hotel Tokyo at Marunouchi. With a ton of fun activities for the whole family.
Activities such as Yo-yo fishing and playtime with Plarail toy sets. But also the chance to design your very own uchiwa (Japanese folding fans).
The location of the hotel doesn’t get any better. Right in the heart of the Marunouchi district, a short walk from Tokyo Station.
