Tokyo

DisneySea

is unlike any other Disney park in the world. It is centered around the theme of exploration, adventure, and maritime mysteries.

As you enter the park, you're transported to a world of intricate detail and immersive storytelling. The seven themed ports, each with its unique atmosphere, range from the romantic Mediterranean Harbor to the mysterious Arabian Coast. Disney Sea is one of the most beautiful theme park I've ever been to and it's a must-visit destination, even if you're not a Disney enthusiasts.

Ghibli Museum

Tokyo

If you're a fan of Ghibli animation, you will love the Ghibli Museum. As you step through its doors, you're greeted by an array of interactive exhibits and imaginative displays that bring to life the studio's iconic films like "My Neighbor Totoro,"

"Spirited Away," and "Princess Mononoke." You can explore the secrets of animation, watch exclusive short films, and visit the rooftop garden to see a life-sized robot from "Laputa: Castle in the Sky." It was an enchanting experience where the magic of animation comes alive. It is really hard to get tickets, so do plan ahead

Universal Studios

Osaka

Universal Studios Japan is a haven for movie lovers, offering a wide range of attractions and experiences inspired by blockbuster films and popular franchises. Among all the attractions, Super Nintendo World and The Wizarding World of Harry Potter left the most lasting impressions on us. The most exciting part of our visit was undoubtedly the experience of collecting coins, playing mini-games, and fighting Bowser Jr. in Super Nintendo World.

Successful
Family
Photos

Family photos are great. And so are the resuling happy memories to look back on for years to come.What's not to love about family photos, except maybe the planning?!

There is something really special about documenting all those beautiful and quickly changing years. But a successful family photo shoot doesn't just happen. Definitely one great photo or moment can candidly happen, but a polished family session with multiple people generally doesn't. However, when we are taking photos with kids, and even sometimes pets, the quicker the beler.

Generally the first 5 minutes capture your smiles. So have a couple poses in mind before hand. Consuling either Instagram or Pinterest will offer plenty of ideas, because lilles and teens can get irritable and cranky quick. So, for this reason, it's best to discuss expectations ahead of me.

Such as: 'I expect you to smile and not make funny faces. And then aSer we will do funny face photo as well: As a general rule,

15 - 20 minutes is all you can realistically expect with out a break. Also having an agreed upon activity or treat worked out for usser the photo shoot is a great idea.

Family Photos - Visual Commonality

Ultimately, whether there are 2 or 12 in a family pic, you want commonality without completely matching outfits. To look effortless and stylish there needs to be some forethought and planning.

Photo inspiration

Pinterest is your friend and your enemy in this way for inspiraSon.

You can get great ideas for poses and colour combos (which is very helpful), but be careful you don't try to create a look for your family that is something completely different than anyone's actual comfort level and style. Like your husband has never worn a bow 5e in his life or your kid HATES hats or you are going to wear heels in sand or snow. If your kid is wearing something they like or are comfortable with - the genuine smiles and memories (and lack of complaining) are going to make for far beler memories and pictures. Remember close and cozy is also prely cute when it comes to posing.
