Baby-friendly sightseeing in Japan, Yokohama

Don’t miss these great locations for a father and son “Boys Day Out”

Does your baby LOVE trains and cars?

When my father (who is a train enthusiast:)) visited us in Japan recently, we all went on a trip to the Hara Model Train Museum and Nissan Global Headquarters car gallery in Yokohama.

It was fantastic!

Even I enjoyed it, particularly because I could sit down and rest and watch the joy that all the trains and cars brought to my son (and also the car gallery had a big Starbucks which is just what I needed!).

So if your boys (or girls:)!) LOVE trains and cars, and you’d like to take them on a fun day trip out of the city, I highly recommend taking them here!
