Kyoto is a city of temples, gardens and other attractions that will truly delight children. Remember Tintin, the comic creation of Belgian writer Herge? Well there is a Tintin Shop in Kyoto that stocks everything connected with the world of Tintin, Captain Haddock, the Thompson Twins and Snowy. The stories of Herge continue to inspire comic books lovers worldwide. The store is located in the refurbished Taisho-era Sakura Bank building and the premises retain the old wood paneling and stairs from the original structure.
Teach you kids about history by taking them on The Kyoto and Nara Day Trip from Kyoto including Nijo Castle. Kids love stories about knights and kings in huge castles, so they will surely enjoy entering the majestic Nijo Castle, the Kyoto residence of the Tokugawa Shogun. Built in 1603, Nijo is noted for the contrast of its solemn appearance and gorgeous interiors.
Your children will also love the Kyoto Municipal Zoo in Okazaki Park near Heian Jingu. This zoo is known more for its spring cherry blossoms and autumn maples than for its over 1000 animal inhabitants which include elephants, apes and big cats. Kyoto is the perfect place where kids can have a lot of fun while learning about history.
