It’s not necessarily April showers that bring only May flowers. From Japan to Amsterdam, and a few places in between, spring is one of the best seasons for a luxury getaway. Here’s where and how:
Amerikamura, or America-mura, is a shopping, entertainment and foodie neighborhood in Osaka, Japan. What may be a dead giveaway by the name, Amerikamura is also known as American Village and offers tourists, families and locals a fun blend of Western-inspired shops, Japanese food stalls and a blend of oddities and attractions. It’s one of those easy-to-navigate neighborhoods that has enough around every corner, including themed stores like Alice on Wednesdays and tons of dining options, that entertain all ages and interests.
This summer, family travel at The Peninsula receives an upgrade with the debut of Camp Peninsula, a children’s experience that recreates the spirit of camping right in the heart of Beverly Hills. The journey begins with a special welcome from Peter Bear, the hotel’s lovable mascot, at check-in. After taking a picture with the life-sized teddy bear, kids will be whisked away by a Peninsula Camp Counselor to a luxurious guestroom where a charming teepee awaits. An afternoon of camp-themed games and activities, including a hotel-wide scavenger hunt, rounds off the family-friendly experience, fun for children of all ages. Whether it’s a luxe staycation or an extended holiday, Camp Peninsula is an ideal way to ensure the little ones are happy campers.
