3 routes but not a lot of stops and not enough bus (average waiting is high)

The Sky bus Tokyo offered three routes to visit Tokyo. The prices are per adult Yen 2500 for one day and Yen 3'500 for two days. It's a good way if you don't have a lot time to... read more

The worst open top bus tour I have ever experienced! For all the reasons of the last 2 reviews and some. Tour staff were rude to my request to change seats when I felt unsafe with my baby on top. We ended up on the highway & I was livid by the end! English translation is like 10 sentences and... More

I strongly recommend Sky Bus Tokyo if you have only 1 or 2 days to see Tokyo! They cover the main Tokyo routes and attractions in a very convenient way for tourists. I stopped at several sites, such as the Asakusa Senso-Ji temples, the Tokyo Tower, the Tokyo Sky Tree, Hibiya Park, and the Tokyo train station. Thanks to them,... More

I went to Tokyo city on August 16th. To look for Sky Bus ( At Mitsubishi building) takes a long time as we came from Tokyo Train Station. Lucky we ask around and manage to find. Over at the pick up point where I pay ¥2,500 to cover 3 route. The journey was pleasant but unfortunely they have 2 type... More

Alright, this was a complete waste of money to be honest. There's a Japanese person with a microphone blabbing while you are trying to enjoy the horrible English audio. It cuts off and sometimes you can't even hear it. Another thing was that it takes ONE HOUR for each bus to come, and most of the time they come about... More

They have 3 routes which sounded great. Paris and Florence had 3 routes as well. I was excited. First off you must sit on the top level even in the super hot sun. It was awfully hot. Second the map i received does not have a full map so there was no way to know where i was in relation... More

The Hop Bus provides a great introduction and helps get orientated with the main tourist areas of Tokyo. The pick up from near Tokyo station, 3 different routes and 24 hour ticket are all convenient.

This isn't the best hop on hop off bus I've ever been on (and I've been on lots) there aren't enough busses running for you to be able to get off at many places because the following bus isn't until an hour plus later. We were unlucky to be on the bus on a rainy day and the cover was... More

After reading some of the reviews on tripadvisor we weren't quite sure if this would be worth our time. However we decided to try it out and ended up spending our whole first day in Tokyo on the busses. It is a good way to get an overview of the city. There was a recorded audio guide (not a live...

All the negative things you read on this company are absolutely true, the staff go out of there way to be rude. Very unusual in Japan as almost all people are so helpful. However the staff with this company must have been hand picked to be the meanest they could find. No wonder the buses are almost empty. The audio... More

Staying in Ginza / Tokyo Nihonbashi

Neighborhood Profile
Ginza / Tokyo Nihonbashi
Ginza is famous for being a trendy hotspot, but it's also a downtown area with shops that were founded over a hundred years ago. Department stores and luxury boutiques line the route from Nihonbashi to Ginza. It's a long established tradition to shop and stroll while the road is closed to traffic. Luxury hotels, world class cuisine from talented chefs, and a collection of glitzy clubs will make this area popular with anyone looking for a night out.
