Japan is 'a child-friendly destination'

Japan is a very child-friendly place for families planning on taking a break there, it has been noted.

Writing for Parenting Blog, one mother spoke about her Christmas holiday plans for her and her family, which may include a trip to the "lovely city" of Sapporo, on the island of Hokkaido.

She said that this area is well-known for welcoming children, as is Japan as a whole.

The blogger also went on to say that the area offers many fun activities suitable for a family break and is also ideal for winter sports such as skiing.

"My husband and I love Japan, the Japanese culture and especially the food, so Japan was a good choice," she also said.

As well as this, the blogger pointed out that Sapporo can offer good value for money for tourists, as the hotels are "pretty affordable" in the city.

A fellow writer echoed the views of this particular mother, writing on the Great Falls Connection that Japanese people are both gracious and welcoming to overseas visitors.
