If you want good nightlife that the whole family can enjoy check out Shibuya.

Oh and if you don't want to be adventurous with the food, you can just get a pizza at any of these places.
shibuya at night?

usualy all the things for kids are closed at 10 and its filled with Shibbies and drunk people throwing up all over the place haha.

i found a really fun place at night is Shinjuku, less drunks and arcades ALL over the place.

Thanks and sorry. The salt thing is just a quirk I have, I am fine without it or with soy sauce . As far as cash goes I'm fine, when I am out of the country as long as I don't ask for precious gems my parents are okay with giving me what I want ROFL. I may not be out too much at night but I will probably go around in the daytime and I can figure out where to stick to in Akihabara. Thanks for all the input

I do have this question about service dogs in Japan. I don't have a service dog now but I am going to get one to help me with my disabilities (Aspergers Syndrome and severe Obsessive Compulsive Disorder.) I heard that Japanese laws only allowed guide dogs in public. Is this true? I will probably still be able to go to Japan as long as someone goes with me after I get older but I won't be able to stay there long if this law doesn't change . I know, most people here will probably not know the answer to this. Just thought I would ask...

i know what AS and OCD both is, but why would you need a service dog for these disabilities?
i am just curious im not tryin to be sarcastic nor mean.

From living in japan, i've never seen a guide dog once... and generally dogs are not allowed into public buildings. But they are allowed in public outside.

Ill try to ask my japanese friends this question and get more information for you. as of now i dont know the exact rules.

Apparently my dad has been to Akihabara. I think he picked up some stuff for me there and looked at electronics when he went on a business trip. He doesn't know about anything done at night though, but he did say that the people he was meeting with made him go straight back to the hotel.

As for an answer to your question, nothing else has worked. Therapy, medication... nothing. I can function normally when I am with my parents but not so well without them. The thing with my OCD is peoples movements can bother me to the point where they physically hurt me. I am calm in two scenarios. The first is if I am occupied with something like the computer or a game (this doesn't always work) and the second is when I am around dogs. Being around dogs helps but each task trained helps me a little more. I have trained a couple basic tasks to my dog but a fully trained Service Dog will help me a lot. There are some training organizations that only train for Autism spectrum disorders too.

Bring Animals

This might help.

And hearing the issues you are working with, I kind of have to wonder if a trip to Tokyo is such a great idea. Personl space is different in Japan. Certainly there are places that aren't crowded, but Akihabara, Shinjuku, Shibuya aren't them. Of course, you know what is best for you...

well everybody has already posted most of the necessary places you can visit here. just to add about where to eat

since you can eat, chicken and beef, then you will not have a problem with food. just go get a "karagi" or "gyudon" or go to a yakiniku shop and you will be fine, even the packed lunch "bento" is ok.

speaking of yakiniku, in between Ueno and Akihabara there is a yakiniku store called "Carne Station", its an eat/drink all you can restaurant for 1 hour , i think its about 1500yen per person. its located under the railway so you wont missed it. It's at the end of akihabara before entering ame yuko in Ueno.

Try ame yuko also its a shopping street in Ueno, lots of interesting shops and food to try there. oh yeah its also a wet market beside it that sells fishes, so it might get a bit stinky
