What You Can Expect

Tokyo Skytree, Asakusa and Central Tokyo Sightseeing Tour

Tokyo Skytree

Get a taste for all that Tokyo has to offer on this 6-hour bus tour, sampling the Japanese capital’s top sights and neighborhoods and 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 begin your tour in the afternoon. Climb aboard and proceed to Tokyo’s city center, where you’ll get a taste for the city’s contrasting mix of ancient tradition and modern glamour. See the Imperial Palace Plaza, with its manicured grounds, then check out 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 Akhibara, where electronics vendors ply their wares. You’ll arrive next at the Asakusa neighborhood, home to many of Tokyo’s most famous temples and shrines. Stop by Asakusa’s Senso-ji temple, the city’s oldest Buddhist religious center, where you will admire its giant Thunder Gate and the striking five-story pagoda. On your way up to the temple, make sure to browse food stands and souvenir vendors lining the alley just out front.
Continue next to the Sumida district to experience one of Tokyo’s newest and biggest attractions, the Tokyo Skytree. This 2,080-foot (634m) tower has been designated the world’s tallest. Ascend to the Skytree’s Tembo Deck, reaching an altitude of 1,148 feet (350m) to enjoy an incredible 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 (450m).
Finish your tour back at Tokyo Station, which provides easy access to the Imperial Palace Plaza and to nearby Ginza.

This was the best tour we did in Japan. Our guide, Tomo, was a fantastic wealth of knowledge. She adjusted the tour to suit our needs. We went to the shrine at the base of Mt Fuji's hiking trail, the wind caves, the Kimono museum and viewing sites for Mt Fuji. Thank you Tomo.

This is primarily a two drive through central Tokyo with two hours of stops at the Meiji Shrine and the SkyTour. The guide does a good job explaining things as we drove around and at the two stops where we were given plenty of free time to sightsee and shop. The SkyTree tickets are included. The bus picked us up right on time and there were a total of 4 people in a 45 passenger coach so we had plenty of room! Glad we did the tour and recommend it.

Overall an excellent tour. The agenda, organisation and timing were all very good. The guide was informative, knowledgeable and engaging. The city sightseeing section of the tour was more comprehensive than I had expected. Just be well aware that although they pick you up from the hotel they will leave you at the Tokyo train station to find your own way back to your hotel unassisted. My travelling party chose to take a taxi rather than deal with the Tokyo trains. Even with the additional taxi fare this was still a very good value tour.

An excellent tour. Started with a drive to some of the tourist attractions, to Asakusa Temple and shopping precinct and then to the Tokyo Skytree for a magnificent view over Tokyo. Time to catch dinner own expense and we then negotiated the underground rail system back to our hotel.
