Looking for a healthy Japanese meal for your little ones? This Daikanyama café offers 15 different types of rice balls that are made fresh with additive-free ingredients. These onigiri – featuring classic Japanese fillings such as salmon, plum, tempura shrimp and many others – can be ordered individually but the fixed course menu (two rice balls, three vegetable side dishes and miso soup) comes highly recommended. The table seating with sofas is convenient for older kids while there’s a dedicated parking space for strollers just outside the shop.
Tokyo’s intense love affair with food can be witnessed everywhere you look, yet the city is surprisingly unaccommodating to families wanting to eat together. Most restaurants are too cramped to cater to big groups, let alone offer special amenities for the little ones. But with this list, you don’t have to cramp your culinary style just because you’re eating with kids. In addition to their commendable menus for grown-ups, these restaurants provide dedicated kids’ plates, play areas, highchairs and booster seats, as well as other kid-friendly touches to make your family meal easy-peasy.
