Families are spoilt for choice when it comes to finding activities that will please both young and old. With such distinct seasons, you will be able to find unique things to do in every month of the year. Summer is the time for fruit picking, when strawberry, grape and stone fruit orchards are teeming with families enjoying a day out in the sun. Autumn is packed with events, from the water-themed Aqua Metropolis Osaka Festival to mandarin picking and of course, autumn leaf viewing. Come winter, you won’t want to stay inside, with ice-skating, penguin watching and the Umeda Snowman Festival brightening up the city. And when spring comes, there’s picnicking under the cherry trees and much, much more. To find family friendly events happening during your stay, use our search tool, or browse the list below.
