Ibaraki with Kids

Many people live in Tokyo for years and never venture out to Ibaraki. We highly recommend you visit Ibaraki with kids for the day or weekend. Ibaraki is a 70 minute drive from central Tokyo (75 minute train ride from Tokyo Station to Mito Station on the Limited Express Train). It is blessed with natural beauty from both the mountain and sea. Ibaraki Prefecture was previously known as Hitachi Province. Then in 1871, the name of the province became Ibaraki.

Here are our favorite things to do in Ibaraki with Kids. We’ll continue to add to the list. Do you have a spot to recommend? Leave a comment below.
