Good Day Tour of Entire City

I agree with previous reviewers. This is not as good as the Dublin hop on hop off bus. The headphones are hard to hear and there is not a lot of information given. You won't know... read more

Flawed model and needs an overhaul! Disappointing! First, the stops are very far from the advertised tourist attraction (not even within view except for the Tokyo Tower). Even the starting point, the Mitsubishi Marunouchi Bldg was very hard to find, not in a tourist area! Second, the driver kept interrupting the audio (maybe the narrative was too long for the...

The Japanese are impeccable at every thing they do ,not here ,take heed of the bad reviews sky bus .Commentary in english sparse ,sound too low blotted out by Japanese commentary.Were told an hour which turned out to be 40 minutes ,fine if your on a plane .

At $35 per person, you'd expect a lot more. I did this with my newly wed and it was the worst experience. 1) The information during the ride is off-sync (says "to your right" at any given time and it's either about to come or already past) 2) NO ONE speaks English. This is a tourist-based business, what the hell!?... More

The commentary is off track the majority of the time. Its not near as good as far as the routing as other cities. It could be worth a one day shot to get a feel for the city, but dont plan on utilizing it as a true hop on hop off experience. The route is super long and the timing... More

the routes cover a fair bit of the city, however, the commentary is very poor. Passed so many places that we would have loved to know what they were but were just not mentioned. Overall, given all the positive experience throughout japan this rated poorly.The routes did cover a number of the places wanted to see but not the main... More

We did two of the tours and it helped us to find the places where we wanted to revisit and spend more time. Unlike other cities the buses don't run very regularly so it limits the options.

The buses only go once per hour and there are only a couple of stops. And the staff selling tickets doesn't speak English (even though many tourists go here), which caused a misunderstanding and we missed the first bus (so we had to wait for an hour to catch the next one). Otherwise it's quite a good tour

Quite opposite reviews on this! On the plus side, you do see some of the sites in Tokyo. We chose the imperial palace tour, which gave in about 45 minutes a good perspective. On the plus side, the reservation is efficient and your seat is reserved. On the downside is the audio guide, which is very short, as the desk... More

Had I known the reviews I wouldn't have done this tour. There is only one bus an hour, one route only 3 buses a day! So not much hopping on, hopping off. There is a English tour but every time it gets interesting they cut it off to announce the next stop or you get a safety reminder. Also what... 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.
