Exploring Omotesando’s cool cultural playground

There is plenty of fun to be had with kids in Tokyo…even in swank Omotesando.


“Words such as “fashion” and “gallery” don’t exactly scream “bring the kids,” but the seventh-floor staff have always been warm and welcoming to us. So much so that in 2012, my daughter and I spent half an afternoon there, lounging inside one of Ernesto Neto’s large woven sculptures that hung from the gallery ceiling (don’t worry — we had permission). I don’t know much about the next exhibit starting Jan. 18, but this space should be on your radar.”

About Jason Andrew Jenkins

In 1997, Jason left his home near Atlanta for a year abroad. He liked it so much that he never went back. After three years in Taiwan and 13 years in Japan, he and his wife quit their desk jobs in Tokyo, pulled their kids out of local schools and traveled as a family for six years, living in Malaysia, Spain, and Mexico along the way. They returned to Japan — Osaka this time — in the summer of 2019. Jason loves Google Maps, carry-on luggage, and most dishes registering on the Scoville scale.
