Traveling with a child always comes with anxiety.
Whenever I am at home, I am always busy
with child care, and I just realized 2020
is about to end.
I am aware that looking after a child is
a very important role, but sometimes
I want to just take a break and relax.
I wish I could go somewhere even
for a few days.
However, the restroom problem gets
Accessible restrooms are installed
in major stations of Tokyo,
and I can change my child’s diapers there.
But what if it is at the place where
I have never been before.
Considering this factor when I choose a
tourist spot to visit is very natural.
Is there any food that my child can eat?
That is another factor that worries me.
If it is not available,
I need to pack all of the food my child
can eat in a backpack.
But I don’t want to go to the common
restaurants that are available around
the Tokyo area or it will be less fun.
And how about the lodging facilities?
Can my child sleep there safely?
And soundly? If there is only a twin
bed for adults, then a child could fall
from the bed. But monitoring my child
for the entire night is reckless.
Having a baby bed could mean “safe”,
but that does not mean a child could
sleep with an easy mind.
If a child oneself is not relieved,
parents need to take care of a child
without sleep. That completely ruins
the purpose of the trip.
Nagoya, where you can get there around
an hour and 35 minutes by bullet train,
can easily fulfill the desire of
“I wish I could go somewhere”.
That short period of time will not make
a child bored. And it is a local
“city”, so you will not have
a restroom problem.
The lodging facility where
we stayed is called
“& SHARE Nakamura Park”.
This place has a great fancy atmosphere
which makes you feel like you are at home.
It is 4 stations away from
Nagoya station on the subway,
so it was very convenient since we were
carrying many bags and luggage.
This hotel has both beds and a futon.
So we decided to use a futon to sleep.
By using futon, I was very relieved since
there was no risk of my child falling,
and I could sleep right next to my child.
A lock is installed on the door,
so my child could not leave the room alone.
Thank you to this child-friendly hotel,
we were able to go to the
Port of Nagoya Public Aquarium
with so much excitement.
