First reviews of TOKYO WITH CHILDREN:
Yolanda Wu (New York, USA): Tokyo With Children was a wonderful resource for us when we visited Tokyo with kids ages 11 and 13. It was like having a trusted friend tell you what would be the most fun for everyone in what can be an overwhelming city. Having subway and train information for each destination was very helpful. We’ve traveled a lot, and this was by far one of the best city guides for families we’ve ever used.
Julen Esteban-Pretel (Valencia, Spain): Having lived in Tokyo for almost a decade, I was surprised by how many new and interesting things I found in Jason’s book to do with my 5-year-old son. Ever since I got the book, I’ve found myself looking at it for reference on what to do almost every weekend. The way it is organized and written makes it very easy and accessible, and it is really a great source of information, whether you live here or are just visiting. I cannot wait for him to write more books on cities I want to visit, and plan what to do with my son around his recommendations.
Mo Clark (Brighton, England): We only had a week in Tokyo and Jason’s book was invaluable in deciding on some of the best things we could do as a family with children, and not necessarily all on the mainstream tourist track. From the Fukagawa Edo Museum to the hot spring park in Odaiba, we felt that we experienced a great variety of what Tokyo can offer that we wouldn’t have found otherwise. On the downside, it meant we were really sorry to be leaving Tokyo so soon without having had the chance to do nearly as much as we wanted to!
Ariel Gibson (Gainesville, FLA, USA): We spent six days in Tokyo and used this book every day. The fact that it is laid out geographically allowed me to easily group the activities and plan our days. Links to maps and the mention of closest metro stations proved invaluable while we navigated Tokyo with our iPad. We loved finding some of the hidden gems that the author and his kids enjoyed (like a funky art gallery with a huge origami crane that my daughter rode!), and we’re sure we would not have found them in other Tokyo guides. Don’t go to Tokyo with kids without this guide!
Robert Purss (New South Wales, Australia): As a relatively long-term Tokyo resident myself (8yrs), I was happy to find many new and unique experiences for my family in this easy to use digital guide. Links throughout the book (including to google maps) make for easy planning and smooth navigation, even with the kids in tow! Recommended for Tokyo first timers, seasoned travelers as well locals looking to share the best of this amazing city with their loved ones.
