Something that’s come out of Japan lately is a bevy of very sophisticated yet inexpensive compact pocket cameras that are fully automatic and offer the creative performance of a pro digital SLR in the convenient size of a point-and-shoot. Great for kids!

Above is a pic from a recent travel made with a Canon Powershot ELPH 110. Much higher quality than any smart phone, and best of all.. No Instagram!

I recently came across a cool website that introduces the culture of Japan to schoolchildren from other countries. Available on Kids Web Japan are games to play, places to explore, and new things to try.
