We boarded a bus at the stop near the Tokyo train station. Very clean and comfortable bus that goes by major Tokyo tourist sites.. Very reasonably priced. We found that when we got off the bus at some of the stops, it did take a...More
This is a bare bones hop on hop off double deck bus tour.
As previous reviews have noted you can only sit upstairs, so if it’s cold (or hot or wet) you’ll enjoy the full experience. We did get blankets on our trip. The audio...More
Found the tourist information very limited on the bus as most of the information provided refers to historical information with nothing visible to see as much of what they referring to no longer exists.
Bus lady keep talking non stop in Japanese and the audio in English volume was so so low you can only heard the Japanese speaker in the background talking non stop. Definitively not a tour for non Japanese speaker and the non stop talking is...More
I booked this tour as a last minute activity, to be honest, for lack of anything better to do. However I am glad that I did it. This bus tour has 3 routes cross crossing the city and you can hop on and off any...More
We can't understand the negative reviews. A group of us (6) followed the instructions to get to the Mitsubishi building by subway to purchase tickets.
Unlike other reviewers, we found the commentary to be spot on with each location, with sufficient information provided. We did...More
The worst red bus hop on tour we have ever done. Apart from the lack of highlights ( unless you count the first set of traffic lights and first 7/11in Tokyo). It started pouring with rain and despite there being seats downstairs we had to...More
We’ve been in a lot of cities and always take a hop on and hop off to get an impression of the city. But the one in Tokyo is a waste of time and money. No real highlights and it looks like if the stops...More
Do not take this tour. Terrible audio guide in English. Could neither hear anything due to the fact that we heard the guide on the bus talking non stop IN EXTREMELY LOUD Japanese from the speaker. EVEN AFTER WE TOLD THEM THIS THERE WAS NO...More
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

hi we were 2 couples and had one day in Tokyo. we thought that best way to see the place in the short time was to hop in this bus. it is ridiculous. the frequency is bad. so, it is not easy to get off and get on the bus again. it doesnt stop at any attractions. if you just want to sit on bus and look at their roads it is ok. i am not sure about wheel chair options. finally, it is expensive. we would have been better off taking cabs and going to places.
Am bringing my sister her first trip to Tokyo (I've been twice). Would like her to get a feel of the city on our arrival day by taking the Sky Bus Tokyo nonstop route (eg: Asakusa-Tokyo Skytree, 85mins) from Marunouchi. I've read negative reviews of the Sky Hop Bus hop-on-hop-off service. Anyone has similar or positive experience on the Sky Bus nonstop (no getting off) routes? Also, I can't seem to confirm info if the Sky Bus Tokyo service operates in December. Does anyone know? Thank...More

Tokyo is a city with which probably a bus-only tour won't work at all (Hato Bus combines a part of Tokyo by getting off the bus and visiting the attractions on foot). The attractions in central Tokyo are geographically too dispersed to cover many by bus (and avoiding congestion at the same time). Also, Tokyo's town areas, be it Asakusa, Akihabara, Yanaka, Ginza, Shibuya, Harajuku, or Shinjuku, are fit for walks but not for buses at all. So I can't recommend a sort of hop-on hop-off or...More

I'm only going to comment on your time in Kyoto. I think you could start a day in Arashiayma, leaving your place in GION at around 9 a.m. You could walk around that part and get a feel for the countryside of Kyoto. When I take guests to ARASHIYAMA, we take a taxi from JR SAGANO ARASHIYAMA station and take it to the top of the hill above ADASHINO NENBUTSU TEMPLE and then walk back down to the HOZU RIVER so then we save some time and don't end up having to backtrack. DON'T follow the crowds in...More
