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.
