Kyoto with Kids (Taoyaka Co. representative: Miho Akasaka), a venture started by Kyoto moms, won the Women’s Award of the 58th Kansai Economic Federation Awards.
Kyoto with Kids was started by local moms with the goal of helping foreign tourists visiting Kyoto, with their kids make memories which will last a lifetime.
Three points contributed to the group being chosen. These were: it is a service focused on children and family, a rarity in urban travel; it is a service designed by moms in the middle of raising their own children; it is a service which provides not only childcare services, but also cultural experiences.
They hope to continue to value their position as moms while acting as a bridge between the local community and families traveling with their children from overseas in order to make a better future for all children.
