Futako-Tamagawa: Child-Friendly Tokyo

5 reasons to visit this neighborhood with your kids

By Kate Neath    - 1 min read

Futako-Tamagawa is a fantastic place to visit with your children. Although it is located a little outside of the city center, it is just a 15-minute train ride from Shibuya and perfect for families looking for a relaxing day or those escaping the hot summer heat or cold winters in Tokyo. This video was taken during the rainy season in June, which is a particularly hard time to travel with kids in tow, but it was no trouble at all with all the child-friendly cafes, indoor play areas and facilities available.
