Hello Tokyo + Kyoto

There is something magical about this season in Japan - the perfect weather and the stunning lush sakura bloom.  And that was the reason we decided to bring Leia and Lauren to Tokyo & Kyoto!

On board with Singapore airlines on our 6-hr flight bound for Narita.  By the look on their faces, they are loving their bassinets!


Hello Tokyo!
Cityscape view from our Godzilla-themed Gracery Hotel in Shinjuku.



People spilling out from all corners on the busy streets of Tokyo against the myriad of neon lights.


The night street market was what brought us to Ueno Park - the whole idea of snacking and exploring the park simultaneously sounds like fun.


Meguro River by night, one of the more peaceful spots to view the lighted cherry blossoms.


We are ready for our first Hanami experience!


Found ourselves a nice and cosy spot for an afternoon picnic under the cherry blossom trees at Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden.


Instead of our usual double stroller, we brought two single prams - Diesel Rock by Bugaboo - that makes it much easier to navigate around the crowded train stations and the tiny lifts in Tokyo.

Big seats to fill, we are heading to Kyoto on our first Shinkansen ride!

Had to grab a picture with the Geishas (tourists).  Here at Gion district everyone plays dress-up!
