In good weather, check out the Baji Koen Equestrian Park where kids can watch horse shows and even ride ponies. Other great sunny-day options include Shinjuku Park and Hama-rikyu Gardens, which are at their best during spring when the cherry blossoms bloom.

Tokyo Dome City offers children rides and games at the supervised amusement park, while parents can relax in the accompanying spa. For kids that enjoy video games, Tokyo Joyopolis will thrill and entertain children of all ages with rides, games and much more. There's also the Kite Museum which is a fervent and vibrant celebration of kites and their history.
