    Great suggestions for Tokyo! We went to the Yamate Halloween walk in YOKOHAMA which was great fun. Could then enjoy some time in Motomachi after. Bar the odd scary mask it was a fantastic walk-about and we could change the baby in Berrick Hall and then tried out the Mama Camper van parked in Motomachi High Street. Sponsored by Benesse and assisted by a lovely lady, it has 2 changing spaces, facilities to make formulae and wipes/trash bags are complimentary. Happy Halloween.

      Thank you Joey! I would LOVE to go to Halloween in Yamate. Such an amazing place. I’ll have to take the kids there next year. The Benesse Mama Camper van sounds fabulous. x Kate
