I don't really think this is something for kids, Young adults travelling with adults - yes. It is colour, movement, light, food, shops and not that expensive.

Too many tourist that litter cigarette buts and rubbish. Not as clean as Kyoto. Probably lacking designated smoking areas and rubbish bins to dispose.

Love this area. It's always bustling with people and energy. You can shop and eat well here. I recommend hitting up one the takoyaki stalls, grabbing a beer and sit done the river side.
