Family Fun in Japan – Take a trip to the world’s friendliest country for kids!

A few years ago, Time published a list of the World’s Top 10 Kid-Friendly Nations, and surprisingly, the U.S. wasn’t even on it! The list was made by Save the Children, a non-governmental organization devoted to improving the lives of children across the globe. Looking at health, education and nutrition factors, Save the Children creates a Child Development Index every few years, which ranks the countries of the world based on the quality of life children will experience when staying in those countries. Japan topped the list, proving that its advanced state of childhood education and medicine are the best in the world. But Japan isn’t just a great place for kids who live there; rather, there are loads of fun things for families and their children to do when visiting the country.

This is because Japan is full of weird and bizarre things that no one somewhere in the North America could ever imagine. But even with all the weird things around in Japan, does that ever stop someone from traveling to Japan? We don’t think so. Limited Space – Tokyo is the largest metropolitan area in the world and with more than 35 million people (and growing) living in the city, it is normal to see how crowded the city can get. Around 170-square feet (15-square meters) is the typical standard of a one bedroom apartment and if you stay in hotel, you will realize how small the rooms are. In other word, they are super tiny. Curiously, the capsule hotels are very popular in major Japanese cities and just like the name, you will get nothing more than just a box to sleep...
