Tokyo Mothers Group
English-speaking support group for families in Tokyo
Join us on a local tour of your neighborhood, to help you acclimatize and feel more comfortable with your new locale.
What are TMG Tours?
TMG Tours are a chance for families to get to know their neighborhoods better. If you are new to Japan/Tokyo and want to know what is around the area you live in, these tours are perfect for you.
Find out about:
Jidokan (play areas)
Train stations and bus stops
And anything else you want to know about!
There are 2 hour and half day options available, for the whole family or just for mum/dad.
Each tour is led by a local mother who has lived in Tokyo for quite some time. As you are led around (on foot), you will get a sense of how your neighborhood feels, get to know all the "must know" places and hot spots and how they work, and have a chance to really pick the brains of the local mother about the area, living in Tokyo/Japan with children, useful resources and so on. Our aim is that you come away feeling excited and comfortable about your new home and that you feel a little less isolated.
2 Hour Tour
This compact tour is a great intro to your neighborhood taking in all the "must know" places for families. It'll be go-go-go as you walk around but really give you a sense for the layout and feel of your new town.
