Japanese food is renowned for using the best fresh, seasonal ingredients and its beautiful presentation. There are lots of interesting and tasty dishes that your family should try and Tokyo sushi can be made with vegetables if your children don’t like fish. Familiar western dishes are widely available if you have fussy eaters and you don’t have to use chopsticks (but it might be fun to try!) Here is our selection of the Best Places to Eat with Kids in Tokyo!

Situated near Koenji Station, Baby King Kitchen is a kid-friendly spot with whitewashed walls and leather sofas.
