Tokyo One Day Itinerary: Roppongi Area with Kids

Start your morning by taking a stroll at Mohri Garden located near Asashi TV and the Roppongi Hills Arena. It`s a beautiful Japanese garden built around a pond with pink cherry blossoms in Spring, red maple leaves in Autumn and illuminations in Winter. Also a lovely place for photos.

Address: 6-9 Roppongi, Minato-ku. Roppongi Hills

If you have active kids we recommend spending your morning at Robot Park. Sakurazaka Park (さくら坂公園), better known as Robot Park, is located next to the Roppongi Hills mega complex. It’s a small park, but it’s well-designed with safety in mind. It`s filled with colorful, contoured plastic slides, robot-designed spring-riders, and a long rolling-pin slide to entertain the kids. There`s also a small, shaded seating area for parents and kids to lunch or have a snack.

** Reopened in Roppongi Hills Hillside B1F –  a short stroll from Mohri Garden is Eggcellent. If you like eggs and wake up early than Eggcellent is an excellent option. We`re hoping they`ll keep the adorable and unique entranceway as the old location; sculpted as an egg shell with the floor tiled to look like a yolk. Super child-friendly with a great breakfast menu.

A great breakfast option, though priced on the higher end is the French Kitchen. Located 2 minutes from Robot Park and in the Grand Hyatt Roppongi Hills this is our go to for special girlfriend brunches. If you want a place for a 1-2 hour leisurely break and brunch, this is the place. The food is fantastic and the restaurant spacious and comfortable. We love the outdoor terrace and indoors the private dining room. Definitely our favorite Tokyo Breakfast Brunch location.

We also recommend Arata Izakaya, a child-friendly and non-smoking izakaya that opens for lunch and has 2 private rooms. They serve home-style Kyoto cuisine and grilled dishes. Although the restaurant is located on the ground floor it has a couple ascending and descending steps. Leave your stroller at the door. Good food, and fun atmosphere. Note your kids might get distracted with the crystal glass Kabuki image on the ceiling.

Rabbits, Hedgehogs and Chinchillas, Ms.Bunny Usagi Cafe 
If your kids love to cuddle animals then visit the Ms.Bunny Shop and Cafe. For a little under 1,500 JPY for 30 mins, your child can hold rabbits, hedgehogs or chinchillas. Note: they do have strict rules on the amount of time each animal can be held so some may not be available.  During the 30 min session, you may hold two animals. The store/cafe is small but a nice space, six to eight people can fit at one time. The helpers provide a blanket to rest the animal on and will help you hold and pet correctly. You can also buy food for the animal; veggies for the rabbits and chinchillas and little worms for the hedgehogs for an incremental 500 JPY.

The Ms. Bunny Usagi Cafe and Shop are above another Hedgehog cafe on the second floor. They are separate businesses. We recommend the Ms. Bunny Usagi Cafe if you want to experience more than just hedgehogs.

Hinokicho ParkHinokicho Park

Tokyo Midtown (東京ミッドタウン) is one of our favorite family-friendly spots to spend the day. It is home to several art museums, family-friendly seasonal events, a spacious green park and lush Japanese garden, medical center, services, restaurants and shopping.

We love spending the morning visiting 21 – 21 Design Sight for their innovative exhibits and the Suntory Museum of Art which holds over 3,000 articles of Japanese ceramics, paintings, lacquerware and glass, and the National Art Museum. Another favorite is Fuji Film Square, a free photo gallery that has been established to allow visitors of all ages to enjoy and experience the elements of photography, and Hinokicho Park, the lush and perfectly manicured Japanese Garden and playground park.

21-21 DESIGN SIGHT “AUDIO ARCHITECTURE” (now until October 14, 2018)– For music and art loversWithin the music familiar to our everyday life, is a combination of elements; layers of tone, sonic range and rhythm form a densely designed structure – architecture. There are few opportunities, however, to be conscious of this structure in particular.

Musician Keigo Oyamada (Cornelius) has written a new music with a focus on its structure exclusively for this exhibition; it is interpreted from the varying perspectives of spirited creators into disparate video works. Participating in this exhibition are nine creators who challenge new modes of expression with original sensibilities, by traversing fields of film, animation, dance, graphic design, illustration, programming and media design. Exhibition graphic is designed by Masakazu Kitayama (Help!).

The exhibition tries to construct a type of “audio architecture” by repeating the music paired to various films over and over, in the space dynamically designed by Masamichi Katayama (Wonderwall). Please come and discover a fresh perspective on music in the venue integrating sound, video and space.

AUDIO ARCHITECTURE @ 21-21 Design Sight Details
