Having been to Tokyo multiple times, this trip was a little different as I was on a mission to make it easier for Muslim families to visit Tokyo. I was pleasantly surprised as there are many attractions and facilities in Tokyo which cater for kids and children no matter what age they are. Whether you’re looking for interactive activities to keep your kids occupied or striking off bucket list-worthy items to do as a family, this 7D6N family-friendly Tokyo itinerary will be perfect for you!

Pre-trip: Flight and travel essentials
Taking Royal Brunei Airlines to Tokyo Narita Airport via Brunei
  • For my trip to Tokyo, I took a red-eye flight on Royal Brunei Airlines. There was a transit in Brunei but it was less than an hour and the connection was hassle-free.
  • My flight from Singapore to Brunei (BI424) was around 1h 50min while the next flight from Brunei to Tokyo (BI695) was around 5h 30min. The relatively short flight times are perfect if you’re travelling with young kids in case they get restless.
  • The baggage allowance for Royal Brunei Airlines starts from  20kg for their RB Super Saver price tier, 25kg for RB Saver and 30kg for RB Value and RB Flexi price tiers. 
  • #HHWT Tip: As both flights are on the A320neo, there might be limited space so make sure you request for a bassinet or preferred seating. You can purchase preferred seating for a fee (between SGD$20.80 and SGD27.20) when making a booking or up to 3 days before your departure, subjected to seat availability.
  • What’s great is that Royal Brunei’s meals are halal-certified and there is no alcohol served onboard!
  • For the short flight, I had fried bee hoon with chicken in BBQ sauce (late dinner) and for the next flight, I chose the Spanish omelette with chicken sausage (breakfast). I enjoyed both meals, particularly because they were served with a warm croissant which was really soft ☺️
  • #HHWT Tip: Book your flight from Singapore to Tokyo (Narita) on Royal Brunei Airlines now and enjoy all-in fares from SGD579 (valid from now till 1 Dec 2019 for travel period till 31 Mar 2020).
  • I enjoyed the inflight entertainment (IFE) system on Royal Brunei called Impian and not to mention that there were many kid-friendly movies too like the Toy Story series, The Incredibles, The Lion King and more.
  • What I really appreciated about Royal Brunei is their Muslim-friendly facilities. Before takeoff, a do’a (prayer) will be played and there’s a Qur’an app in the IFE too so you can read surahs as and when you’d like. 
  • Not to mention that you can conveniently do your prayers inflight too as the IFE is equipped with qibla direction. If you’re flying on Royal Brunei’s Boeing 787 Dreamliner, you can also request for a prayer mat 😊
Getting your pocket Wi-Fi from Klook (pick-up from Japan!)
  • With Klook’s unlimited 4G Wi-Fi device (pick-up from Japan), you and your family can stay connected throughout Japan. It can connect up to 5 devices and the battery can last up to 9 hours!
  • #HHWT Tip: It’s also great if you’re doing a multi-city Japan trip as you can pick up and drop off your device at different locations in Japan.
  • P.S. Use these promo codes to get discounts off your Klook purchases (first time users only): TRAVELHHWTSG (SGD10 off for min. Spending of SGD 80), TRAVELHHWTID (IDR100k off for min. spending of IDR800k), TRAVELHHWTMY (RM30 off for min. spending of RM240)
Travelling luggage-free with LuggAgent
  •  It’s a hassle to travel with your luggage in tow, especially when your flight arrives early and you can’t check in to your accommodation yet. Not to mention that you’d tend to have a lot of excess baggage when travelling with family! 
  • Here’s an idea - why not travel luggage-free with LuggAgent, a service which transports your luggage from the airport to your accommodation? This way, you can do some sightseeing right away and check in later!
The staff from LuggAgent who picked up my luggage
  • All you have to do is book on Klook and they will send you an email to get your details and let you know where to wait for the staff. Once you reach the airport (Narita or Haneda), they’ll be waiting at one of the gates at the airport and you can pass them your luggage.
  • I took their Same Day Luggage Delivery Service and the whole process was really convenient.
  • #HHWT Tip: LuggAgent is now having a “Buy 1 Get 1” promotion on Klook, which means more savings for you!
Getting around Tokyo
  • If you’re only travelling within Tokyo, I recommend getting the SUICA Card which is a reloadable prepaid card.
  • What’s great about the SUICA  is that you can use it on all train lines and buses in Tokyo. Not to mention, certain vending machines and shops too.   
  • #HHWT Tip: Book the SUICA Card on Klook and you can conveniently collect it at the airport when you arrive and it’ll be pre-loaded with JPY1500
  • P.S. Don’t forget to use these promo codes to get discounts off your Klook purchases (first time users only): TRAVELHHWTSG (SGD10 off for min. Spending of SGD 80), TRAVELHHWTID (IDR100k off for min. spending of IDR800k), TRAVELHHWTMY (RM30 off for min. spending of RM240)
Finding a hospital/clinic in Tokyo
Day 1: Ueno
Travel from Narita Airport to Ueno (45min)
  • What’s great about the Keisei Skyliner is that the trains are really spacious and all the seats are reserved so you don’t have to worry about not having a place to sit! 
  • There’s also a designated area for you to store your luggage if you choose not to use LuggAgent.
  • #HHWT Tip: Get your Skyliner tickets at a discounted price on Klook or get even more savings when you use these promo codes: TRAVELHHWTSG (SGD10 off), TRAVELHHWTID (IDR100k off), TRAVELHHWTMY (RM30 off).
  • P.S. For information on elevators and family-friendly facilities at Ueno Station, check out this article for more info.
See giant pandas and other animals at the Ueno Zoo (4-5h)
  • Once you’ve arrived at Ueno Station, make your way to the Ueno Zoo, Japan’s oldest zoo which has been around since the 1880s.
  • From Keisei-Ueno Station, just take the exit which leads into Ueno Park and follow the signs for Ueno Zoo. The walk takes around 5-10 minutes.
  • Did you know that there are around 3000 animals (400 different species!) at Ueno Zoo?
  • The zoo is separated into East and West zones and the main entrance leads straight into the East zone.
  •  Meet RiRi, Shin Shin and Xiang Xiang, the Giant Pandas in Ueno Zoo! Known as the stars of the zoo, these pandas have been brought in from China for conservation efforts as they are in danger of extinction. 
  • #HHWT Tip: The giant pandas spend most of their day resting so if you want to catch them in action, you have to come during feeding time which is at 11.30AM, 1PM and 3PM daily. Do note you’d have to start queuing at least 45 minutes before feeding time so you won’t miss the chance to get a glimpse of them.
  • There are 2 lanes for viewing the pandas and if you’re with children aged 12 and under, you’ll get access to the lane which is closer to the pandas.
  • While you’re here, don’t miss out on the chance to see animals native to Japan too, such as the Japanese macaques (nihon-zaru) which are most commonly known as the snow monkeys.
  • These monkeys are known for their bright red face and their ability to withstand winter conditions!
  • The snow monkeys in Ueno Zoo were brought from Aomori prefecture in order to prevent them from being exterminated.
  • It was my first time seeing snow monkeys and I really enjoyed observing their movements. Definitely something the young ones would find intriguing!
  •  Besides giant pandas and snow monkeys, do check out other unique animals at Ueno Zoo like the okapi (zebra giraffe), aye-aye (lemurs which are native to Madagascar), the Galapagos tortoise and more. You can easily spend half a day here! 
Rest areas at Ueno Zoo
#HHWT Tip: If you need a break or looking for a spot to feed your kids, there are plenty of benches, like this, throughout the zoo. The zoo’s walkways are also really spacious so your kids are free to run around 🤗 Ueno Zoo Address: 9-83, Ueno Park, Taito-ku, Tokyo 110-8711, Japan Opening hours: Tue-Sat; 9.30AM-5PM (closed on Mon) Admission fee: JPY600 (adult), JPY200 (teenagers aged 13-15), JPY300 (seniors over 65), Free (children aged 12 and under) Family-friendly facilities: Baby care room: 4 - 1 in East zone, 3 in West zone. Diaper changing tables, nursing chairs and hot water available.
Stroller rental service: 3 - East Garden Panda exhibit, Benten Gate and Ikenohata Gate, Fee: JPY500, for children aged 7 months to 4 years old. Fuel up at Ayam-YA Okachimachi (1h)
  •   After a tiring day at the zoo, it’s time to refuel at Ayam-YA Okachimachi, one of the most popular halal ramen chains in Japan! 
  • It’s located about a 15-minute walk from the main entrance of Ueno Zoo or you can take the JR line from JR Ueno Station to Okachimachi and walk for about 5 minutes.
  • I ordered the regular-sized Spicy Tori Ramen Shio (salt-based) for JPY890 and the broth was super rich and flavourful! If you’re looking for a larger serving to share with your child, I’d recommend getting the large bowl which comes at no extra cost.
  • #HHWT Tip: There’s non-spicy ramen if you or your kids can’t take spice.
  • Don’t forget to top up JPY100 for a soft-boiled egg and make sure you order their kaarage chicken (JPY380) too as it’s really yummy 😋
  • Halal status: Halal-certified (by Japan Halal Foundation)
  • Address: 4 Chome-10-1 Taito, Tokyo 110-0016, Japan
  • Opening hours: Open daily; 11.30AM-3.30PM, 5PM-9.30PM
  • Stroller-friendly: No but there’s an area to store it
  • Baby chair: Available
Stop by for prayers at Masjid Assalaam Okachimachi (30min)
  • The best thing about dining at Ayam-YA is that it’s only a short walk away from Masjid Assalaam Okachimachi so you can conveniently do your prayers before or after your meal.
  •  Though it might not look like your typical mosque back home and though the prayer area is pretty small, the mosque still holds congregational prayers.   
  • It felt really amazing to be able to hear the azan in Tokyo and perform jemaah (congregational) prayers with Muslim locals and fellow travellers ❤️
  • P.S. Do note that the mosque does not have an elevator so you might want to keep your strollers on the first floor before heading up to pray.
  • #HHWT Tip: If your child needs some play time, there's a park near Ayam-YA and the mosque which is complete with a playground too.
Check-in to Hotel Metropolitan Tokyo Ikebukuro
  • It’s finally time to check-in to your hotel at Hotel Metropolitan Tokyo Ikebukuro, located just a 3-minutes walk from JR Ikebukuro Station.
  • The Ikebukuro district is a good location to stay in as it’s well-connected to the commercial areas of Shinjuku, Shibuya, Ueno and Tokyo Station via the JR Yamanote Line. Not to mention that there are shopping malls and plenty of convenience stores around.
  • #HHWT Tip: For information on elevators and family-friendly facilities at Ikebukuro Station, check out this article for more info.
  • Room rates start from JPY23,000 per night and all rooms can accommodate 2 adults; 2 children aged 0-6 can stay for free. 
  • If your kids are older, you can choose to add an extra bed for a fee.
  • #HHWT Tip: If you're looking to enjoy a city view of Ikebukuro, be sure to check out the city-view room on the 22nd and 23rd floor!
  • If your family is huge, I recommend staying in the Japanese suites which can accommodate 4 adults and 4 children.
  • Apart from your usual beds, there’s also a Japanese tatami sleeping area. This way, you can experience what it’s like to stay in a ryokan (Japanese inn)!
  • There are breastfeeding rooms with baby diaper changing stations on the 4th floor of the hotel.
  • #HHWT Tip: During your stay, you can request for a baby’s cot for free! All you have to do is inform the staff during check-in but do note that the cot is subject to availability.
Hotel Metropolitan Tokyo Ikebukuro Address: 6-1, Nishiikebukuro-1chome, Toshima-ku, Tokyo, 171-8505, Japan Contact: Reserve through their booking site or call +81 3-3980-1111
Day 2: Tokyo Disney Resort
Spend your entire day at the Happiest Place on Earth
  •  After a restful night, it’s time to visit the Happiest Place on Earth - Tokyo Disneyland (or Disneysea!) A visit to Tokyo Disney Resort is a must as it’s perfect for both the young and the young at heart! 
  • From Ikebukuro, take the Tokyo Metro Yurakucho line to Shin-Kiba station then transfer to the JR Keiyo line and alight at Maihama station where you can transfer to the Disney Resort Line.
  • #HHWT Tip: Remember to book your admission tickets in advance! It’s hassle-free and you’ll get instant confirmation.
  • In case you’re still deciding if you should visit Tokyo Disneyland or Disneysea, this guide will help you compare both theme parks! For those with younger kids, Tokyo Disneyland will be more suitable as there are plenty of kid-friendly rides at Fantasyland.
  • You can also visit both parks by purchasing the 2-Day Pass as it’s more worth it than getting 2 individual passes. Do note that it’s only valid for 2 consecutive days.
  • If you’re visiting Tokyo Disneyland, don’t miss out on the iconic Splash Mountain and Space Mountain roller coasters where you can get your adrenaline racing!
  • For those of you with young children, you can go on more kid-friendly rides like Dumbo The Flying Elephant, Pooh’s Hunny Hunt and Alice’s Tea Party.
  •  Remember to get a FASTPASS to beat the queues at popular attractions, so your kids won’t feel restless while waiting for the rides!   Check out our article to find out which FASTPASS you should get plus other useful tips!
  • #HHWT Tip: Leave your strollers at the baby care centers and use a baby carrier when queuing up for rides.
  • Heading to DisneySea instead? Then one ride you have to go on is Toy Story Mania where you’ll be “shrunken” down to the size of a toy. There will be a series of interactive 4D shooting games - definitely plenty of fun for the whole family! Ariel’s Mermaid Lagoon is worth a visit too; don’t miss the nautical-themed concert at the Mermaid Lagoon Theatre!
  • Some of the kid-friendly rides that you can try at DisneySea are the DisneySea Electric Railway, Flounder’s Flying Fish Coaster, Jumping Jellyfish and Jasmine’s Flying Carpets.
  • #HHWT Tip: Be sure to catch the parade at both Disneyland and DisneySea and grab a seat along the parade route at least 30-45 minutes in advance so that you won’t miss the best moments of the parade! Check out the parade timings here: Disneyland, DisneySea.
Muslim-friendly food at Tokyo Disney Resort
  •  If you’re finding a place to dine with your family after your day at the Disney parks, the good news is that Red Lobster at Ikspiari Mall has started serving Muslim-friendly food options since August this year.
Credit: Food Diversity
  • Do note that there are only 3 items on the Muslim-friendly menu - gyudon (beef rice bowl, JPY1080), vegetable penne (JPY1280) and butter chicken curry (JPY1280) but it’ll be enough to fill your tummy!
  • Halal status: Muslim-friendly menu available. All ingredients in Muslim-friendly menu are from halal-certified suppliers and although it’s prepared in the same kitchen as non-halal meals, separate kitchenware is used to prepare the meals.

  • Address: 1-4 Ikspiari 3F (inside Grace Square)
  • Opening hours: Open daily; 11AM-11PM

Prayer room
  •  While there’s no official designated prayer rooms in both Disneyland and DisneySea, you can request to do your prayers at Main Street House (Disneyland) or Guest Relations (DisneySea) and the staff will gladly show you to a room.

Day 3: Odaiba
Getting to Odaiba
  • It’s day 3 and today, you’ll be heading to Odaiba which is located on a man made island off Tokyo Bay. Odaiba is a popular shopping and entertainment district for families in Tokyo!
  •  To get to Odaiba from Ikebukuro, take the JR Yamanote Line to Shimbashi station and transfer to the Yurikamome line before alighting at Aomi station for your first stop, Teamlab Borderless. 
  • The Yurikamome line is an elevated train line that goes across the Tokyo Bay and the trains are automated. Kids will definitely enjoy the ride if they are sitting all the way in front as they’ll be able to get a view of the train track!
Be marvelled by Teamlab Borderless exhibits (5-6h)
  • One of the most popular attractions in Odaiba is Teamlab Borderless - a digital art exhibition where the exhibits move freely around a space and change constantly due to the movement and interaction of people.
  • The exhibition is located in the Mori Building in Palette Town. When you exit Aomi station, just follow the signs that’ll lead you to Teamlab Borderless.
  • #HHWT Tip: Remember to get your tickets in advance on Klook as Teamlab is really popular and tickets might get sold out fast. Do visit early too (it opens at 10AM) as there will be long queues for the individual exhibits.
  • Head to the Athletics Forest first where there are many interactive activities, which is great for both adults and kids.
  •  The main space called Graffiti Nature, is landscaped after hills and valleys and you’ll see various creatures on the floor. What’s interesting is that you can draw your own animals and flowers, scan it and it’ll automatically come to life! 
  • #HHWT Tip: Use these promo codes to get discounts off your Klook purchases (first time users only): TRAVELHHWTSG (SGD10 off for min. Spending of SGD 80), TRAVELHHWTID (IDR100k off for min. spending of IDR800k), TRAVELHHWTMY (RM30 off for min. spending of RM240)
  • Besides that, you can also find other athletic activities here such as the Multi-Jumping Universe (above) where your jumps on the trampoline will create new planets.
  • If you’re up for a challenge, you can also try climbing and bouldering and the good thing is that there are separate activity areas for adults and children. These activities are a great workout for your kids!
  • The next exhibit you should head to is the Forest of Resonating Lamps where you’ll enter a room of mirrors that’s full of these gorgeous lamps.
  • What happens is that once a person comes close to a lamp, it will light up and the colour of that lamp will spread to the surrounding lamps. It’s a truly captivating sight 😍
  •  Do note that you’ll only get about 30 seconds in the room and if you’re with your kids, you’d have to be careful that they don’t knock into any of the lamps! 
  • There’s usually a queue for this exhibit so make sure you plan your time properly.
  • Don’t leave Teamlab Borderless without visiting the biggest exhibit, Universe of Water Particles, Transcending Boundaries where you’ll see a digital waterfall interspersed with flowers.
  • What happens is when you step on the “water”, its flow is actually obstructed and it changes course, making the artwork really immersive!
  • This exhibit is also very Instagram-worthy so make sure you get your cameras out 😍
Important info before entering Teamlab Borderless
  • Do note that you can’t bring strollers into Teamlab. You can store it in the locker rooms provided.
  • You can’t bring food or drinks into Teamlab so do make sure you and your kids have eaten something beforehand.
  • There’s a baby station room with hot water and nursing cubicles on the second floor (near Athletics Forest) so make sure you pack enough diapers and formula when you enter Teamlab.
  • It’s really dark inside Teamlab so do make sure that your kids stay close to you.
Teamlab Borderless Address: MORI Building, Odaiba Palette Town 2F, 1-3-8 Aomi, Koto-ku, Tokyo, Japan Opening hours: Mon-Fri; 10AM-7PM, Sat-Sun/PH; 10AM-9PM Admission fee: Find out more here. Fill your tummy at Sojibo Diver City (1h)
  • After a fun morning at Teamlab Borderless, it’s time for lunch at Odaiba’s only halal-certified Japanese eatery - Sojibo!
  • Sojibo is located on the 6th floor of Diver City shopping mall, which is around a 10-15min walk from Teamlab Borderless. Walk through the park nearby and once you see a huge statue of Gundam, that’s where Diver City is!
  • #HHWT Tip: There’s a free shuttle bus (Tokyo Bay Shuttle Bus) which goes around Odaiba. It runs approx. every 20 minutes from 11.30AM to 7.30PM. Find out more about the route here (scroll down to the map and click English)

  •  My favourite part of the show was when Hello Kitty made her grand entrance by flying into the performance 😍 
  • #HHWT Tip: To ensure that you get a good spot to catch Hello Kitty and friends, make sure you come at least 30-45 minutes early. There are designated areas where you can sit and wait for the parade to start.
  • P.S. Do note that the parade timings change daily so do check out their website before you visit!
  • After you’ve watched the parade, it’s time to get up close and personal with Hello Kitty herself at the Lady Kitty House!
  • Take a peek into the world of Hello Kitty and see how she decorates her room or have fun with the interactive digital wardrobe. There’s even a make-up area and a tea house with tatami mats.
  • Any fans of Gudetama out there? Then you’d want to make a stop at Gudetama Land which has plenty of photo spots and exciting games!
  • Be sure to strike the best pose and take home that adorable snapshot of your family with Gudetama.
  •  I really enjoyed the arcade-style games such as this “crack-the-egg” game where you’re supposed to crack Gudetama onto as many frying pans as possible. It’s harder than it looks! 
  • Another fun game is the Gudebowl where you’re supposed to roll a ball and hit as many Gudetama bowling pins as you can 😂
  • #HHWT Tip: Do bring along a baby carrier as not all floors of Sanrio Puroland are stroller-friendly. You can store your strollers at a designated area.
  • P.S. As there are no halal-certified food options in Sanrio Puroland and you can’t bring food from outside, do have a heavy breakfast before visiting the park.

  • Do note that you’d still need to bring your own prayer mats and garments!
ALTERNATIVE: Unwind at Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden (2h)

  • If you’re familiar with the 1986 film, Castle in the Sky, then you need to see the 5-metre-tall Robot Soldier at the rooftop garden of the museum. It’s known as the “guardian” of the Ghibli Museum and we can totally see why!

Meet the Muslim community at Tokyo’s largest mosque (1h)
  • If you’re excited to meet fellow Muslims in Tokyo, there’s no better place to go than the Tokyo Camii (mosque)!
  • The mosque was first established in the 1930s by Turkish immigrants in Japan and it also houses the Turkish Cultural Centre.
  • It’s really amazing to be able to admire stunning Turkish architecture in Japan which is a reminder that Islam cuts across racial boundaries 😍
  • While I was there on a weekend, there were many Japanese locals who were there on a tour organised by the mosque.
  • I noticed a lot of Malaysian and Indonesian families too and even spoke to some of them. It’s always a nice feeling to meet fellow Muslim travellers overseas, isn’t it?
  • #HHWT Tip: Do note that the wudhu area is located on the first floor of the mosque, which is away from the prayer hall.

  • Managed by the same team as famous halal yakiniku (Japanese BBQ) eatery Gyumon, Hitsujinoyu specialises in shabu-shabu and it’s located very near Gyumon too.
  • Hitsujinoyu occupies 2 floors and the eatery has limited seating so it’s strongly recommended that you make reservations beforehand by sending them a message on Instagram or calling +81 3-6427-9197

  • Hitsujinoyu has a halal menu (JPY3500) which consists of lamb shabu-shabu and BBQ. The serving is pretty generous so you can share it between 2 or 3 people.
  • As most shabu-shabu places tend to serve beef, it was a pretty unique experience to try lamb shabu-shabu instead!

  • It’s time to catch a bird’s eye view of Tokyo from the tallest building in Japan, Tokyo Skytree!
  • As sunset is early during autumn and winter (around 4.50pm) it was already dark when I visited the Skytree but I could admire Tokyo’s stunning night lights even though it was a little cloudy.
  • Having been here in the day on my previous trip, the atmosphere this time round was different.
  • Seeing the exterior of the Skytree lit up in the night sky was also an experience in itself. What made it more interesting was that there was a countdown to Tokyo Olympics 2020! 
  • Kids can look forward to these interactive boards where you can zoom in and identify the different buildings near Tokyo Skytree.
  • If you’re here in the day instead, then try to spot the skyscrapers in Shinjuku from here! On a clear day, you might even be able to see Mt Fuji 😍

Indulge in halal premium wagyu for dinner (1.5h)
  • It’s your last night in Tokyo and what better way to celebrate it than by indulging in some halal wagyu (Japanese beef) at Halal Wagyu Dining Panga 585?
  • This is the second outlet of popular halal yakiniku eatery, Yakiniku Panga!
  • This outlet specialises in the A5 rank wagyu called satsuma which is known as the top grade Japanese wagyu.
  • I ordered the Standard Steak Set (JPY3600) which consists of Australian beef steak and 60g of the A5 satsuma wagyu, rice and soup. It was a real treat to watch the chef grill the meat right in front of my eyes and I definitely couldn’t wait to eat!
  • Needless to say, the A5 satsuma wagyu (right) was more delicious than the Australian beef. It was so fatty, juicy and melted in my mouth 😋

  • One awesome thing about Royal Brunei Airlines’ flight from Tokyo to Brunei (BI696) is the timing which is at 11.45AM and this means that you don’t have to wake up super early for your flight.
  •  What’s more, with kids, you’ll most likely take a longer time to do some last-minute packing so this flight timing gives you just enough room for that. 
  • Thanks to Royal Brunei’s free stopover in Brunei, I was excited to continue my trip in Brunei (keep a lookout for our upcoming article!).
  • Do note that only one inbound or outbound flight is allowed without additional costs. The fee for extra stopover is chargeable at SGD200.
  • If you’re continuing your journey to Singapore via Brunei, the connection is also really short and hassle-free - the flight from Tokyo reaches Brunei at 5.10PM and the flight to Singapore is at 6.30PM.
  • For the lunch meal from Tokyo to Brunei, I was so thrilled that I got to try halal Japanese cuisine onboard 🤗
  • The simmered beef in Japanese sauce with black sesame rice was a real treat as the beef was tender and the sauce was yummy. Plus, it was served with tamagoyaki (Japanese omelette) and red bean mochi!
  • #HHWT Tip: Book your flight from Singapore to Tokyo (Narita) on Royal Brunei Airlines now and enjoy all-in fares from SGD579 (valid from now till 1 Dec 2019 for travel period till 31 Mar 2020).
  • #HHWT Tip:  If you need a child meal (CHML) for your children (aged 2-5), don’t forget to request for it in “Manage Booking” at least 24 hours in advance. There’s also an option for Baby Meal (BBML) for those aged 6 to 24 months. 
  • Look at how cute the child meal is! The bread and rice come in the shape of a face and the fruits are cut in small pieces such that it’s easy to digest. Not to mention that there are colourful marshmallows too.
With that, you have just conquered 7D6N in Tokyo with your family! With so many kid-friendly and interactive activities in Tokyo, the city makes a perfect destination for a family vacay.
