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

Four of us booked the 50 min tour and regret doing so. As it was raining we expected to be able to sit downstairs but was flatly told no. On finding our seats upstairs we noticed that the first two rows were under cover and asked to move there. Again a flat refusal. With only eight other people on board... More

Before I sing praises for Skyhop, I must say that many of the complaints are true. However, those complaints aren't important to me. No insult intended. For me, the Skyhop is an excellent way to get an idea of the layout of the city. Tokyo is a very overwhelming city. Trust me when I say that you will spend many... More

The Skybus Tokyo Service is one of the best ways to see the japaneese capital for the first time. I would recommend the 48 hours ticket to have a possibility to cover all main stops. Very friendly staff, you can leave your baggage inside a bus, english audio comments and tips available.

We signed up for the English tour of Tokyo. What we got was a 1-hour bus ride that gave a very minimal, pre-recorded information, that was almost impossible to hear because the Japanese-speaking tour guide was non-stop on the microphone. So basically, for around ¥1,800 per person, you get to city a slice of Tokyo for an hour with practically... More

We didn't originally intend to do the HOHO on the last day of our stay in Tokyo having read some fairly damming reviews but as we had already checked out of our hotel and had nine hours to kill before due at the airport for the flight home, decided to give it a go, especially as one of the pickups...

Seeing as it's quite exhausting covering the city on foot, we decided to take this bus for its routes so my elderly parents could take in more of the sights. First of all, the guides aren't prepared for when the buses get full. There isn't a reservation system, the bus comes every hour, so there's a high chance you'll have... More

Too few buses to allow hop on and off within the time limit. Takes you on a tour of shopping centres. The commentary is terrible 90% music and no interesting facts.

We used 2 of the offered bus tours. Because ther is no competiton, the quality of information on the tour is not relvant to price of 2500 Yen per person. Otherwise we have had a sunny day and have seen a bit of the town. The organisation is OK, but leaving the bus to visit one of the landmarks could... More

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.
