Infrequent pickups and no guarantee you'll fit on. Upstairs only, no downstairs option. Limited stops and unsatisfactory commentary.

We really enjoyed this experience. It allowed us to see Tokyo above ground, and to see where we would like to go back to. Just remember to rug up as it is freezing during the winter months. You can do all the lines with one ticket, and can hop off and on at each stop.

With all the negative and average reviews we had very low expectations. We just did the Blue line in the middle of the day. As the youngest was asleep, we just took in the sights, enjoyed looking at all the buildings and listening to the simple explanations. The whole family learnt something new. Being Winter it was fresh so we... More

This was a two hour,night-time bus tour which involved one hour of driving around the city including Ginza, going over the Rainbow bridge and around other parts of Tokyo. For one hour, we stopped at Aqua City, Odaiba where you can eat and shop. I took opportunity to exist the mall and walk along the boardwalk where you got a... More

¥2500 for a day ticket, which is fine if you are doing hop on, hop off but if you want to use it for sightseeing you're wasting your time and money. You can't stand up to take photos and there is only one bus for each route all terminating at Marounouchi. You spend a great deal of time stationary in... More

Just a tour of central Tokyo's key tourist sites. English is good, but explanation of sites in Japanese is far more extensive. There are multiple routes, but we just took one. Tour lasts an hour.

To buy a ticket for this you first have to get yourself to the Tokyo Station then find the Marunouchi /Mitsubushi Building. If you are not sure just ask they will point you in the direction. If you are travelling by train from the Ginza, Tokyo station is just one stop away. At the Marunouchi/Mitsubishi Bldg look for the Red... More

Well, Have done the Red Bus in several other cities but this one is odd, the route options are 3 but all come back to the main point of ticket sale. No way to hop on to access the other routes along the way, when you get back to the main pick up point the line is a mile long... More

We really enjoyed this bus tour. Some people have said the buses weren't open top... We got on and off all day and every bus we had was open top. Someone else said about long queues.. We had no queues all day! We did all 3 routes, really enjoyed it. Very useful to visit the main attractions such as sky... 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.
