Here is my itinerary for a weekend jaunt in Tokyo City.
Total number of days: 2
Total number of people travelling together: 2 adults, 2 children (5 and 2 years old)
Primary mode of transport: Train
Travel Tip: If you’re travelling via train with tiny tots, either bring a light umbrella stroller (that can be managed one-handed) or a baby carrier. Most of the station platforms are only directly accessible via stairs or escalator.
Day 1: Tokyo City and Surrounds
- Tsukiji Fish Market
- Ghibli Museum
- Ikebukuro Shopping
- Nekobukuro Cat Cafe
Day 2: Tokyo Disneyland
Things to note:
- Ghibli Museum tickets can only be purchased in advance from LAWSON convenience stores within Japan and from Japan Travel Agencies outside Japan.
- If you are travelling within Tokyo/Yokohama via train from the Narita International Airport, it is worth getting the N’EX and SUICA package deal upon arrival in Japan! The N’EX is a one way or return ticket (we chose the return ticket option) and the SUICA is a stored value travel card which can be used on buses and at selected stores.
