Kanagawa for Families

Family friendly spots south of Tokyo

If you're visiting Kanagawa with kids in tow, plan ahead with this exciting range of activities sure to keep the whole family entertained and the younger ones inspired throughout your Kanagawa trip.

For younger audiences, don't miss some of Japan's most iconic anime characters by checking out Yokohama Anpanman Children's Museum or Fujiko F. Fujio Museum — home of the beloved Doraemon character.

You can't go wrong with wildlife and sealife for any age either and Yokohama comes up trumps again, with both Zoorasia and Hakkeijima Sea Paradise popular destinations.

Pre-teens are sure to be thrilled by the craziness at Asobuild's Hapipi Land, the hot spring and water theme park at Hakone's Yunessun or the chance to navigate the waters of Lake Ashi aboard a pirate boat!

For a learning opportunity and chance to witness a few cultural marvels, don't miss the chance to see a traditional Japanese castle in Odawara. Over in Yokosuka, why not try boarding the impressive Mikasa memorial warship that is permanently stationed at Mikasa Park?
