In order to prevent the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19), various facilities around Tokyo may change their operating days or hours. In addition, some events may be canceled or postponed. Please check official facility or event websites for the latest updates and information.

Exciting activities for families with kids can be found at Tokyo’s unique interactive museums and time-limited events.

High-Tech Animal Expeditions at Tokyo’s Zukan Museum Ginza

Popular illustrated encyclopedias come to digital life here—and you and your family get to dive in. Search for realistic animals in environments like grasslands, forests, and the deep sea. Time passes and weather changes, meaning animal behavior does, too. A handheld device (English available) provides hints on locating animals.

Optical Illusion Activities at Odaiba’s Tokyo Trick Art Museum

Visitors here are invited to step into the artwork. Take whimsical photographs with paintings that appear to be three-dimensional. Explore five zones, including the Edo Area and the Funny Ninja and Japanese Monsters Area. This makes for hilarious family-friendly entertainment.

Tokyo’s Harry Potter-Inspired Townscape at Akasaka Sacas

To celebrate the Asia debut of “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child,” parts of the Akasaka Sacas complex have been magically (and temporarily) transformed into the world of pop-culture phenomenon Harry Potter. Decorations include a larger-than-life Time-Turner at Wizarding World Gate (the staircase leading to Sacas Square). Find Potter-inspired food, sweets and drinks at the Harry Potter Cafe and merchandise at the Mahou Dokoro shop on Wizarding World Street (aka Nakadori Street).
