Not so gloomy but is Tokyo safe for this woman to walk alone and for two grade school boys on a school night without their mum?

Not so gloomy but is Tokyo safe for this woman to walk alone and for two grade school boys on a school night without their mum?

Almost always, yes it is.

as a train runs on the overpass in Tokyo 

"the overpass" suggests that there is only one of them, "an overpass" would be better.

Almost always,

More fitting words to the atmosphere with this changed caption. The earlier was “Out and about” but maybe the editor rethought the mood of the photo and maybe not to encourage children and young women unescorted in some areas of Tokyo at night?

I can hear and smell this photo.

It is sad to think that the mood is one of danger. Compared with some of the places I have been in my lifetime it is the safest place I know. I fell in love with Tokyo on my first visit and have been back many times since (pre Covid of course). I always feel safe late at night and have never felt threatened in any of the places I have been (Shinjuku/Shibuya/Akiba for instance) Then again I am an older guy and don't have the locals knowledge. I guess that maybe it would be different for younger women on their own. You would need to enlighten me!
