Hi! I’m trying to build my family itinerary for our family trip end of September 2018. We would like to start in Tokyo and make our way to Osaka. Where do I start???
Welcome to the TA forums!
Please start with www.japan-guide.com for some inspiration. The site also has suggested itineraries.
How old are your kids and what are they interested in?
My daughters will be 8 and 5 when we leave. My kids are pretty open. Anything new brings them excitement. Disneyland, Disney Sea, KidZania are on our to do list for sure
@Leah C -
Lonely Planet publishes a Tokyo guide:
But they do not publish a guide for Osaka. So you might want to go with the Lonely Planet Japan guidebook:
You don't have to read the entirety of both books, just the relevant sections on what there is to see and do.
Put together a list of things you would want to see and for your kids as well.
