Tokyo Olympics with a Baby and Kids

Are you thinking to come to the Tokyo Olympics in 2020?

Maybe you will have a baby or toddler in tow, and you are wondering if this will be possible?

The Tokyo Olympics will be held in 2 main areas:

  • Heritage Zone (this is the location of the previous 1964 Olympics)
  • Tokyo Bay Zone (this is the new modern zone)

Make sure you download this free PDF guide for the Olympics!

Here is the link for the guide in other languages!

Here is the website link for the Tokyo Olympics.

These 2 zones expand across Tokyo in an “infinite” symbol. The Athletes Village is located at the spot where the 2 zones intersect!

The great news is that these 2 main areas are covered in my Tokyo Guide!

This is exciting, because you will know that the baby facilities, playgrounds, and baby-friendly cafes that are featured in my guide will all be within reach. I will be blogging about all the new locations that are popping up too, so by the time the Olympics arrives we will be ready to enjoy this exciting event with our babies and children in tow!

In terms of hotels, I recommend to book a hotel in advance that will be close to the main sports that you would like to see. For example, if you will mostly be in the Tokyo Bay Zone, then it would be highly recommended to book the Hilton or Nikko hotels in Odaiba. I will be blogging about all the hotels soon, so make sure you keep checking back here.

Hope this helps as some initial information for the Tokyo Olympics!
