The driver was absolutely dreadful, breaking so hard and jerking the wheel so much I had to actually leave the tour earlier as my back was hurting so much from the rough ride. We did the blue route and you really only see the tokyo...More

Y3500 (£24.00GBP) for a 24 hour city tour based on 2 different bus routes plus a third, the same as the second with a few additions. Also a non hop on/off at a cheaper price. English headphones and quite interesting. A good way to get...More

Tips: 1. Board the bus at the main station (where all 3 lines meet). Be as much as 30 minutes early, to make sure you will fit on the next bus. 2. Show up for the first bus in the morning. 3. Your hotel may...More

A complete waste of money, use the local rail. Bus stops have limited signage so good luck finding them. They need to spend the time and money to fix the map up for tourists as after all this is who it caters for. 24hour ticket...More

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

Hi Sharon! That's a very difficult question as only the Sky Bus Tokyo company can answer if they will operate on said date. I suggest you message them through their website. They do reply!

None. I stayed in that very same hotel and unfortunately, there is no stop nearby (you have to go to Ueno or Tokyo Skytree). Their stops are in very hard to find places and out-of-the way of tourists (weird right?). I... More
