Get a taste for all that Tokyo has to offer on this afternoon tour, finishing with unbelievable views from the top of Tokyo’s Skytree monument.
Start your excursion with pickup from select hotels, arriving at the Tokyo Hamamatsucho Bus Terminal where you’ll climb aboard your coach. Proceed to Tokyo’s city center to see a contrasting mix of traditional architecture and modern glamour. View the Imperial Palace Plaza with its manicured grounds, then check out the art deco–style National Diet Building and the sprawling State Guest House.
Moving on, your bus passes through the commercial district of Ginza, one of Tokyo’s top spots for entertainment, shopping and eating, and the neon-lit Akihabara, where electronics vendors ply their wares.
After a 15-minute sightseeing cruise on Tokyo Bay, arrive back in the Sumida district to experience one of Tokyo’s largest attractions: the 2,080-foot (634-meter) Tokyo Skytree. Ascend to the Skytree’s Tembo Deck for a bird’s-eye view of this sprawling urban center. Feel free to stop by the Tembo Deck’s on-site restaurant, café and shop, or purchase an optional extension to climb even higher up this giant monument to the Tembo Galleria. This upper viewing deck offers hyperbole-worthy views of Tokyo from a height of 1,476 feet (450 meters).
Finish your tour at Tokyo Station, which provides easy access to the Imperial Palace Plaza and to nearby Ginza.
