Small people who resemble my wife running around Japan . . .

Jump to last reply

We're trying to plan a BIG trip next summer (read: end May, early June) and both the wife and I loved our trip to Japan. We'd like to take the hobbits (boy, will be pushing 7, flies well, travels fairly well; girl, will be 4+, settles down as easily as a highly caffeinated frog). We'd like to go back to Kyoto because . . . Kyoto. We'd spend 5-6 nights there and probably 3-4 in Tokyo. The boy LOVES trains, so his interests are easy to handle. She likes castles and can find fun playing with a box. They both like critters of all sorts (Zoo and Aquarium memberships are kept current, always).

Suggestions on cool things in Kyoto/Tokyo areas (no Disney) for the halflings? I'm at a bit of a loss on what to do to entertain them if we do take them across the big pond - Cormorant fishing? Gifu-jo? HIroshima? They'd probably like wandering around the Fushimi-Inari shrine and Arashiyama. Not sure what will be accessible at Himeji.

Help appreciated.
