・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.
