・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 me worried. 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.
•Is Family Trip Taxing? One of the great things about a trip is to feel the sensation of an extraordinary day. Visiting unusual places neither a house nor a supermarket revitalizes your brain. Then you can comfortably go back to usual days. By traveling with a family, a good memory multiplies by each family member, and that will be stored in our hearts. You will feel it was fun when you travel with three people instead of alone or two people. However, traveling with a child is taxing. I have a child who has just turned one-year-old, and of course, we carry around diapers and clothes to change. Just in case, we also carried what my child normally eats in the case when meals were not suitable. To make follow-up milk, I brought a bottle of hot water. Myy child was neede to be carried as if "a luggage" when falling asleep. I felt from the bottom of my heart that I need to carry so many things just by having one child. That day, the main event was to visit the "Nagoya City Science Museum". This science museum has a really good planetarium, but that area was closed due to the COVID-19. Although they only had the regular exhibitions, one of their major exhibits, "Tornado", was mouth opening. Since it was a weekday, we were fully able to enjoy it. Since I didn't know what exhibits would attract my child, we decided to walk around and stop at wherever my child liked. The exhibit which had a lot of mirrors was my child's favorite. After the science museum, we went to Nakamura Park by subway. Nakamura Park is located 7 minutes away from Nagoya Station. Upon leaving the station, we arrived at the place to stay name "AND SHARE Nakamura Park". Although it was located in quiet houses area, this distance was very convenient for me since I was carrying many things. After we smoothly checked in, we got into our room. Since the room was huge, there was enough space even if I put my things around the room. Although there were two beds, we only used one. There was a fancy bed, but there was a risk of my child falling from the bed. So, we decided to rent a futon and put on the floor. I also used a futon. Only my husband used a bed. Normally, business hotels don't offer this kind of thing flexibly, so I am happy to have stayed in AND SHARE.
