Last summer, I took Miss M to Kidzania for a date with mama. She did not like it at all. I did not realize that the children do everything on their own, without their parents. So she was quite scared going by herself. Thankfully they gave me the money back because she did not do anything. We waited a year before trying again, and this time, went with friends. We had so much fun. Miss M started by making a pizza for LA pizza. After eating her pizza, we rode the Hato bus, which the K Man loved! We signed up Miss M and her friend for the nail salon, where Miss M was the worker and painted her friends' nails. I thought it was funny when they had Miss M look at herself in a mirror and make sure she looked nice before her customer came in to the store. We signed up the K Man to be a fireman. At first he did not want to go without me. But finally, he went, and I am so glad he did because he had so much fun. He got to wear a fireman outfit, ride a fire truck and put out a pretend fire with real water. Unfortunately my phone died right when he got to the house so I could not get a video. It was really cool. We ended with Miss M and her friend baking doughnuts, that we ate when we got home. The K Man rode the Hato bus again. There was so many things you could do or try. Unfortunately we only got to a few. Hopefully next time we will try some new things. Miss M wants to do the pizza place again for her food, a doughnut for a treat, and go with the K Man on the fire truck.
If you have a chance, google Kidzania Tokyo and check it out. There was so much to do and I would highly recommend it for families visiting Tokyo, if your kids are ages 3 and up. Younger ones may have trouble if they do not like to be away from mama, but the K Man did just fine when he went with a little friend. Just be prepared - it is loud and crowded, so if you can, go during a weekday morning session when school is in session. We will try that next time.
