One of the world's largest cities, it is no surprise that Tokyo is packed with experiences to delight the whole family. The only problem will be deciding where to start! Tokyo Disneyland and Disneysea, Hello Kitty Sanrio Puroland, the crazy shops of Harajuku or a taiko drumming lesson are all excellent options. We also recommend visiting in one of the towering video game arcades of Akihabara – with flashing lights, photos booths and games to keep you occupied for hours!
“What gets me about Tokyo is the sheer volume of restaurants. As a food obsessive this is the draw that pulls me back again and again.”
