Japan is a surprisingly family-friendly destination with tons of attractions — theme parks, museums, castles, temples, parks and gardens — to explore. The hardest part of visiting Japan with kids is deciding what to include so you’re not overtaxing your kids or your budget.

Buy a JR Pass

Zipping through the Japanese countryside on a bullet train is a must, especially if you’re traveling with kids. It’s also a quick and convenient method of getting from one place to another. Thanks to the bullet trains, you can base your family in one city, like Osaka or Tokyo, and take day trips to the country’s other cities and attractions. Depending on how much train travel you plan to do, you’ll likely save money by purchasing JR Passes for each member of your family.
