Kid Play...Bellhop or Cook for a Day at Rihga Hotel in Tokyo

If you visited Tokyo this summer, stayed at the  Rihga Royal Hotel and brought the kids along, they could have been in for a special treat.

This Kid Play was offered in July and August only.

Other Summer workshops: Not the School of Rock, Womad's Summer Camp and Learn French in the Mediterranean City of Montpellier
