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.

Traveling in January has it benefits!!! I originally was worried that I would not get a good seat on the bus since I was getting picked up at the last pick up zone Tokyo Train Station. When the bus pulled up... the only ones on the bus where the driver and guide. It ended up being a PRIVATE TOUR at a group rate.

Kay my guide was excellent with information about the country and city both historic and current information. She was easy to understand because of her previous experience of living in England.

Time spent at each stop was just right and the highlight of the tour was the view from Skytree toward the end. We arrived early enough to see the city when it was still light out and then watch the city change as the sun went down. Great photo opportunity!!!!!

You also need to play with the electronic touch screen device of the city view from Skytree. You have different options to move your touch bubble around the screen and can decide if you want to see what it looked like in the past or the present.

Great tour to familiarize yourself with the city and the different districts. The Skytree gives you a panoramic view of the city and in a clear day an excellent view of Mt. Fuji.

Perfect for first day to get oriented and see the city at sundown. Our guide was perfect!
