The Ghibli Museum in Mitaka, Japan is a gateway to a storybook realm designed to please kids of any age. Your kids may already be familiar with some of the characters they meet there and children under 4 years of age get in for free.

The Cat Bus (from My Neighbor Totoro) attraction on the second floor is a favorite, but is limited to kids 12 and younger. Be sure to check their website for special attractions and hours.

Another destination in Asia for kids is the Children’s Grand Park in Seoul, Korea. The park stretches 530,000 square meters that encompass a zoo, amusement attractions, shows, a botanical garden and more.

Kids will enjoy seeing seals and polar bears at the Marine Animal House, avian friends at Parrot Village, or a selection of smaller animals at the Small Animal Village. Aside from animals the Water Playground features a number of water shows, the Musical Fountain, and plenty of rides designed to thrill kids of all ages.
