Overview

Get a unique perspective on Tokyo on this 6-hour bus tour of the city’s top must-see sights, culminating in a visit to the Tokyo Skytree, one of the world’s tallest towers. Start in central Tokyo, where you’ll drive past the Imperial Palace Plaza, National Diet Building and State Guest House, then head to the city’s Ginza and Akhibara districts. Then check out Buddhist shrines of Asakusa before getting a sky-high view of Tokyo on top of its towering Skytree attraction. Your excursion also includes hotel pickup, a guide and Skytree admission.
  • Asakusa and Tokyo Skytree tour
  • See the Imperial Palace Plaza, National Diet Building, State Guest House, Ginza and Akihabara
  • Visit the Asakusa district in Tokyo and discover the ancient Senso-ji Buddhist temple
  • Enjoy panoramic views from Japan’s highest structure at the 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.

We got to see the Sensoji temple--very nice. The Tokyo Skytower was also good. The drive through Tokyo was just okay. I didn't like that we had to change buses.

The tour itself was not as advertised. We expected a more informative tour on Tokyo and certainly more than 2 stops in 6 hours. However, the tour guide kept strict account to the seating arrangement on the bus and she was difficult to understand at times.
