Why We Love Family Friendly Tokyo

heart of the city fun travel guide

With Bébé Voyage’s Family Friendly Tokyo Destination Guide, you’ll get to experience this great Asian city in a family-friendly way. This guide has recommendations on things to do for the whole family, including touring the main sites, but also how to best experience the culture like a local and what parks are nearby for your kids to go run and play. 

While Tokyo can initially feel chaotic and confusing, give it a few days. Before you know it, your children will have discovered their favorite neighborhood playground, Hello Kitty and the other ubiquitous anime characters will have crept under your skin, and suddenly you look out through the window and can’t wait to see yet another new thing in this amazing city.

With a quarter of the population over 75, it might be surprising that Tokyo is built to be extremely child-friendly. There are children’s toilets in most shopping centers, changing rooms in department stores, playgrounds in pocket-sized parks spread all over residential areas. From the air, Tokyo looks like a gray maze; from the ground, it looks like the inside of a salad bowl. It is a surprisingly green city and easy to get around. Tokyo is tradition and revolution, ancient temples and newly-built skyscrapers, all mixed together. It is the perfect place to spend your Japan family holiday.
