One of the many reasons why I love Japan is because there is so much to do here. I have a 2-year-old daughter and its never hard for us to find something new and exciting.  In my opinion, Japan is pretty much mommy and baby friendly. I can’t tell you one place that I have been to that did not have something to accommodate mother and child.

Recently, a friend and I took our kiddos to the Tokyo Toy Museum in  Shinjuku and we had a blast! The Tokyo Toy Museum has a gift shop and 3 floors. Each floor has about 3 to 4 rooms filled with unique and fun toys to play with it. Unlike some of the museums in Japan, there is not a place to eat lunch inside, but there is a Burger King near by.

When we walked into the first room, I was very nervous about  a toddler running around touching and accidentally dropping toys, but the wonderful staff assured me that it was okay. Every room in the museum was great, but I think the kids enjoyed the Wood Toy Forest the most; it was hard to pull them away! The Wood Toy Forest has a Wood Ball Pool, a tree house, and many other things off to the sides.

My favorite part of the museum was the Good Toy Galley.  The Good Toy Gallery is a section of the museum where toys that are given the Good Toy Award for being the best for children’s development skills are displayed.

We enjoyed the Tokyo Toy Museum so much, that we are planning another trip soon. The Tokyo Toy Museum should definitely be on your list to visit if you are traveling with children. They will love it and so will you!
