Start your morning off at Bills Odaiba in the Decks Shopping Mall which has an open terrace that gives a beautiful view of Tokyo Bay and the Rainbow Bridge. The large, 200 person seating restaurant is clean and family-friendly. Families can enjoy their meal then take a stroll out on the large promenade in nice weather or stay-in and shop around. If you walk towards Tokyo Bay there is a man-made beach where kids can frolick in the sand and enjoy the view. Bills Odaiba opens from 9:00.



If with young kids Legoland Discovery Center is a great option. Located a minute walk from Bills it`s one of our favorite indoor theme park on our list of TOP Theme Parks in Japan. They have a miniature model of the Tokyo’s cityscape made from nearly 1.5 million bricks, a Lego-themed laser shooting ride, Fire Academy & Construction Site with crawl spaces, 4D cinema, and so much more. Tokyo Legoland Discovery Center opens from 10:00.

TeamLab Borderless is another fantastic spot. Brilliant for young and old this installation offers 360 degree immerse light, sound and environment experience. `Artworks move out of the rooms freely, form connections and relationships with people, communicate with other works, influence and sometimes intermingle with each other.` – TeamLab

If with teens we recommend popping in next door to Aqua City Tokyo Joypolis, an indoor theme park with rides and attractions (open from 10:00) or take the escalator upstairs to the 4th floor and visit the Daiba 1-Chome Shotengai, a retro 1950s shopping street with food, games and souvenirs. Visitors flock here for the games and quirky shops. Located at the end of the Daiba 1-Chome Shotengai is the Takoyaki Museum – more a food court than a museum, with adorable Takoyaki goods and food. Great spot for a Takoyaki snack.

Tokyo with Kids

Another fun spot to visit on the Daiba 1-Chome Shotengai is the Tokyo Trick Art Museum. Our girls loved posing with the 3D artwork and visual illusions. We spent less than an hour there void of crowds. We recommend visiting during the week. Weekends/Holidays tend to get crowded.

Cost: Adults (15yrs & over) 1,000 JPY; Children (Ages 4 – 14) 700 JPY.

Hours: 11:00-21:00 (last admission 20:30)

Take a break from the mall and head outdoors to Odaiba`s Sea Side park. Stroll along the man-made beach with views of boats in the bay and the Rainbow Bridge. Highly recommend crossing by foot or bike; also has great views of the sunset.

End your day at Oedo Onsen Monogatari, a hot spring theme park with onsen, dining and entertainment set in the Edo Period or ride the Pallette Town Ferris Wheel for a 16 minute twilight ride over-looking Tokyo. Hours 10:00 – 22:00.

If heading out of Odaiba try the Tokyo Water Bus. The water buses run to six main locations; Hamarikyu Gardens and Hinode Pier near Hamamatsucho Station, Odaiba, Pallete Town, Tokyo Big Sight and Toyosu across the bay and to Asakusa up the Sumida River. We recommend you ride between April – November when the temperatures are lovely on the boats.

You can also visit the new Tokyo Fish market in Toyosu. It is not as fun as the old Tuna Auction in Tsukiji (closed in 2019) but is kids will still enjoy. The outer market at Tsukiji is still open and a great place to have an early lunch – walk around and buy cooked egg omelets, crab legs and sushi!
