We’re family of 4 (2 adults + 2 toddlers age 3&6), will be travelling to Japan for the 1st time by early Dec. After many browsing I decided to just highlight the trip into Tokyo Disneyland, Snow Monkey Park, Onsen (and snow playing if we are lucky) and Tokyo City.
Wondering if anyone could help:
1) Is there any age restrictions at the onsen (either public or hotel onsen)? When going to public onsen, can my 2 boys joining me or do they have to join my husband (i read that the public onsen are separated for male/ female.
2) Any recommendation for kids friendly ryokan with own onsen (mid range)?
3) Will it be likely any early snow around 8-12 dec?
5) Our 2 boys are very active, will it be ok to stay in Ryokan or is it better to stay in a modern hotel like? We really want to get the Japanese stay though.
