Your tour continues with a drive over the Yokohama Bay Bridge across Tokyo Bay, and ends with a choice of drop-off in the commercial districts of Ginza or Shinjuku.
with the limited time available this is the best way to see various aspects to the Tokyo areas.
Pick up arrangements (from near Mercure Hotel in Ginza) worked very well
This tour was very well organized and the guide was fantastic. He was very knowledgable about Japan and on each part of the tour. He was flexible and dealt with all on this trip in a professional manor. The lunch was fantastic. The only problem we had was that they do not drop you off at your hotel but rather they have 2 stops and you need to find your own way back. This was difficult only being in Tokyo for 2 days total. Otherwise, this was a great trip to learn about the history of Japan.
