Going On A Family Trip To Kyoto Is On Many Lists Of Things To Do This Year
For many families, going on a family vacation is one of the most exciting things they can look forward to this year – and it should be! After such a rough patch in the last few years, many are looking forward to getting away and being with the people they love most.
However, planning a family trip to Kyoto can be tricky. There are so many places and things to do, and it can be hard to know where to start. It doesn't need to be hard – here are some of the best family trips to Kyoto that you can take this year.
One of the best things you can do this year is to take a trip to Kyoto during Museum Month. From March to October, more than 100 museums around Japan will be open with free admission, and you can take your family for a whole day and see all the incredible exhibits.
Not only will you be able to see amazing artwork and cultural displays for free, but you will also be able to eat at a lot of the museums as well. It's an excellent opportunity to see art in a different way, and with your own wallet intact.
The Ghibi-Tanukichi Shrine
This is one of the most romantic and beautiful spots in Kyoto. The city's largest Shinto shrine, The Ghibi-Tanukichi Shrine, is situated in a wooded area of the city. Every day at sunset, thousands of tanuki (Japanese raccoon dogs) come out of their hiding places and dance around the torii, which leads to one of the greatest spectacles in Japan.
The highlight of the festival is the Tanuki Matsuri, where the smallest tanuki wear costumes and perform funny antics. This is followed by the Enkyo (Ladies) Dance, where elegant Kyoto ladies dance to the drums and perform traditional Japanese dances. If you want to add some romance to your trip, this is a must-see attraction.
Hoshinoya Hotels And Resorts
If your family has a romantic streak, you can propose to your spouse at one of the Hoshinoya Hotels and Resorts in Kyoto. This group of five-star luxury hotels has set up a proposal spot in the form of a temple. You can book an appointment to meet with a priest, and when the time comes, you can pop the question.
The hotel provides you with a marriage certificate and a photographer to capture the moment. If your love story is truly special, it doesn't get more perfect than having a wedding in one of Japan's most romantic spots.
Kyoto International Animation Festival
The Kyoto International Animation Festival is one of the best family trips to Kyoto this year. This is because there are so many anime-related activities and exhibits to see.
From March to October, you will be able to see anime characters interact with each other, live actors, and even musicians. You can make a whole day of it and take your kids to see the many shows and meet the beloved characters.
With so much to do and see, how can you possibly fail? You can start by going to the festival website and booking a room at a nearby hotel. It's the perfect way to make memories with your family.
Kokura Museum Of Art
One more thing to add to our list of family trips to Kyoto is the very unique and beautiful Kokura Museum Of Art. It's located in a converted Imperial Palace from 1875, and its collection includes both Japanese and Western works of art. It's free, and the tour takes about an hour to an hour and a half.
If you have the time, it's an excellent place to spend an hour or two. You will be able to stroll around the galleries and admire the beautiful and unique artwork for which the museum is famous.
This year will be full of special events and occasions for families. Whether it's planning a trip to Kyoto to see some of the greatest artwork ever created or taking a romantic stroll down one of the most romantic spots in the city, you can guarantee that there will be something to fit around every member of the family.
