Ninja Tokyo
@dang-familyfi
This was not your typical dinner. I would say you are truly paying more for the entertainment, complete with NINJA magic, making it an experience and dining choice for the kids. Thoughts: As for the food, we thought it was OK. However, we did have a late omakase lunch and were still quite full from that. Definitely recommend spacing out these two experiences on different days.

Day 6 - Universal Studios Japan

Universal Studios Japan
@dang-familyfi
Express Pass: For a smooth experience and guaranteed entry into Super Nintendo World (SNW), I would recommend purchasing an express pass. This is at an additional cost, but I highly recommend it as this provides timed "fast passes" into specific rides and attractions. Tip: BOOK EARLY! We waited to book our tickets and missed out on the early entry passes for SNW. Booking tickets early ensures the best entry time into SNW as later times will mean crowds and long lines

Details

Day 7 - Hakone

Tip: Ship your luggage! As we moved our way back towards Tokyo, we decided to ship our luggage from Swissotel to our last destination, Disney Hotel Mira Costa. Our hotel helped arrange the shipment of our one large luggage which cost about $40 and took two days to get to our destination. Doing this allowed us to travel through Hakone, a smaller town, with ease. 

Hotel Recommendation
