While all the neighborhoods of Tokyo are equally safe, some are more family oriented than others. Sensoji Temple, souvenir shops and easy transportation in Asakusa make it a great family destination. The free Asakusa Ueno Panda Bus shuttles tourists around some of Tokyo’s most popular attractions including Sensoji and Tokyo Skytree. The panda bus alone, shaped like a giant panda, is an amusing ride. In and around Ueno Koen there is enough to keep all ages entertained for days. Ueno’s zoo, museums, temples, shrines, and nearby Ameyokocho market make it an easy spot to camp out for the day. Tokyo has neighborhoods for every interest and it is easy to find areas the entire family will enjoy.

Sky Tree ::: As far as the eye can see
A lovely experience awaits the patient traveller - this is one of Tokyo's newest attractions and it should still be commanding many visitors, both local and foreign. The picture shows the view from the 2nd highest level. Simple marvellous - be sure to apply lots of elbow grease and nudging - you need to make your presence felt as the hordes of visitors are another sight to behold. Locals go 'Sugoi!" (loosely translated to "AWESOME!") when they first emerge out of the high-speed elevators.
