Young boys visiting Japan on their own ok?

Jump to last reply

In August '13, my 2 sons 13 and 16 will be flying home on their own, to San Francisco after 4 weeks in Singapore (they'll be staying with relatives). I was hoping they could visit Japan en route. They are pretty independent, flew on their own to Asia once before but have no friends in Japan. They will be flying Singapore Airlines and my questions are
1) what airport should they land in
2) what itinary should they shoot for, 8 hour layover or a few nights
3) how safe is it for them to travel alone
4) is this just crazy of me and should I scrap the idea

Any comments and guildance would be greatly apprciated.
