I’m a mother from New York City and I recently moved to Tokyo with my husband, Yuki and our two children Keiji (2 1/2 years old) and Arisa (10 months old). Since Yuki must work many hours a week (as expected of all Japanese fathers) Keiji, Arisa and I are left on our own to explore our new hometown. Fortunately, we’ve gotten a great deal of help from Yuki’s family and great new friends whom we’ve met along the way. This site is just a little way to share what we’ve learned about life in Tokyo with kids. We’re always looking to hear from other parents too, so I do hope you’ll share some of your stories and knowledge with us! Thanks for reading!
