Last October, I invited my girlfriend [Censored] and her then-nearly-two-year-old son [Censored] to go with me to Japan.
Besides being the first time going to Japan with companions (I have gone there solo previously), it was also my first experience in international travel with a toddler.
During the trip, [Censored] was generally well-behaved with only a few lapses. Quite often, he provided some "comic relief" for us. But he seemed to enjoy the trip and, even now, talks about it. His vocabulary skills have grown considerably within the past few months. Years from now, if he doesn't remember going to Japan, we have plenty of photographs to show him.
Inside Japan has posted an article on one couple's experience in traveling to Japan with their toddler, age 3 along with some places to visit with a toddler.

According to the article, the author feels that having a toddler along only enriched the experience. I have to agree.
