short stay in Tokyo

My family of five will be in Tokyo for only three full days in May. Any suggestions on what area we should stay in to be kind of central? I have no idea and need to book some rooms soon.

Thank you!!

Not being in any way an expert, I'd say Tokyo has no one center, but rather lots of centers. We liked Asakusa , liked less Akasaka.

Depends what you want to see- the temple at Asakusa obviously attracted loads of tourists so there were plenty of places to eat that had good English. But I can see the attraction of a more "Japanese" places.

Some basics, please. Which Tokyo airport and time of day of arrival and departure. Ages of family members. Tokyo the only part of Japan Itinerary? Budget? More information from you translates into better suggestions for you.

We will be arriving at the Narita airport mid day on a Friday then leaving the following Tuesday. We plan on staying in Tokyo the whole time due to time constrains. Any suggestions of what area to stay in would be great. Thank you!
