10 Family-Friendly Airbnb Apartments in Tokyo

These Airbnb apartments with five-star ratings and positive reviews from previous guests can be your family’s home away from home in Tokyo.

Home to attractions like Disneyland, DisneySea, Sanrio Puroland, and a variety of zoos and aquariums, it’s no wonder that Tokyo is fast becoming a favourite destination among families. However, the logistics involved in planning a family trip to Tokyo can be frustrating, with a variety of considerations to take into account. To simplify the planning process, we’ve handpicked 10 family-friendly Airbnbs in Tokyo that come highly rated.

Why Airbnb? Well, for one, some hotels require the family to split into two rooms, which is not the best option for family bonding – or for the wallet! These Airbnb apartments, on the other hand, will keep the whole family under one roof. On top of that, some of them come with a dining space, a fully functional kitchen and even freebies like a portable WiFi router.

Without further ado, have a browse and make your picks. The kids will thank you later!
