Are you:

  • Planning to visit Tokyo soon for vacation, but worried about traveling in such a big city with your baby?
  • You’ve been to Tokyo before, so you kind of know what to expect, but in the back of your mind you are anxious as this will be the first time with an infant in tow?
  • Or maybe you are moving to Tokyo soon and wondering how on earth you are going to navigate all the train stations and elevators, not to mention how to find the baby-friendly cafes, sightseeing spots and playgrounds?

My Tokyo Guide can help you!

2nd Edition, 2017

I am SO excited to bring you the 2nd Edition of The Tokyo Guide. The 1st Edition was launched in January 2015 and within months of the release hundreds of mums and dads from all around the world had purchased my ebook and were using it to find their way around Tokyo. Thanks to the positive feedback from everyone over the past year, I decided to make the Tokyo Guide even bigger by including over 50 more baby-friendly restaurants. These are restaurants that are only known by Japanese mums and dads and you would never realize they are family friendly unless someone told you! So this is very important info and I am sure will help you all to have that romantic dinner that you have been waiting for. With baby in tow of course! In addition, there were some shops that had moved and new sightseeing spots have emerged, which have all been updated and added to the guide.

The Tokyo Guide includes:

  • 12 x Tokyo Guide eBooks (color PDF) – downloadable to your PC, tablet and smartphone
  • The Tokyo Guide full ebook (color PDF) – downloadable to your PC, tablet and smartphone
  • The Tokyo Guide iBook (text version with clickable TOC and Japanese addresses) – downloadable to your PC, tablet and smartphone

The Tokyo Guide includes over 250 locations in the Top 10 Most Baby-Friendly Spots in Tokyo:

  1. Tokyo
  2. Ginza / Yurakucho
  3. Tokyo Midtown
  4. Roppongi Hills
  5. Harajuku / Omotesando
  6. Shinjuku
  7. Shibuya
  8. Daikanyama
  9. Jiyugaoka
  10. Futako-Tamagawa


  • Baby-friendly sightseeing
  • Child-friendly cafes & restaurants
  • Parks and playgrounds
  • Nursing rooms
  • Best shopping baby fashion, accessories, and souvenirs

As well as essential tips:

  • Which train stations should I avoid with a stroller?

Customer Reviews:

Kate’s Guide was a lifesaver!! I spent a month in Tokyo with my then 16 month old son. My husband was directing a TV show in Tokyo, and luckily for me, the cinematographer’s wife also flew out from LA with her 6 month old daughter and 3 year old son. We were a #squad. Every day, we picked a place from the Guide and went (on foot/stroller/baby carrier, by taxi, and even via subway)! I have even recommended the Guide for my childless friends bc it is so easy to follow. Too many favorites to list, but the day trip to Jiyugaoka was so special. Thank you, Kate! We can’t wait to go back!!! P.S. Kate’s blog and Instagram helped, too! xx

I traveled to Tokyo several time with my daughter who is now almost 2. On our first trip she was 3 months and having your guide helped me find great places where we could both enjoy tokyo and I wouldn’t be stressed out about finding facilities to change her etc. Loved the guide and found the suggestions incredibly helpful.

“We are back from Japan, and had a great time. We spent 2 weeks in Tokyo. This was our 2nd trip to Japan but our first with our 10 month old baby, and having your guide made things much easier. Being able to find playrooms close to the locations we were visiting was really great, and made our trip much more enjoyable. We particularly enjoyed the one at the Loft in Shibuya!”

    Hi, I tried to register myself with Tokyo Urban Baby but I was unable to do so. There is only option to login. I’m planning to travel with my baby next year in Oct as my girl turns 1 yr 5 mths old. As we have not travel with her before (not even to the nearest country), it would really help if I can register myself with this site to read through your Travel Guide with babies.
