If you are planning to visit Tokyo this year, try one (or all) of these 4 fun activities that we picked out to give you the best memories.

(1) SKY BUS TOKYO: The Best View of Tokyo from a Double-Decker Bus!

The “bright red double-decker bus without a roof” runs around the city of Tokyo. There are two types of buses: the “SKY BUS,” which offers guided tours of Tokyo’s sightseeing routes, and the “SKY HOP BUS,” which allows passengers to hop on and off at any time and any place.

The “SKYBUS” offers a choice of several courses that take passengers to the most popular sightseeing spots in Tokyo. Guides will also be on board, so they can tell you about Tokyo’s sightseeing spots in an easy-to-understand manner.

Take in the breathtaking views of Tokyo from the SKY BUS, surrounded by nature and skyscrapers.

The “SKY HOP BUS,” on the other hand, is great for everyone who likes to explore the city on their own, too. If you buy a one-day pass, you can hop on and off the bus as much as you like to explore the city, visiting Shibuya, Odaiba, Asakusa/Tokyo Skytree, Akihabara, and more. The buses have free Wi-Fi and English-speaking staff on board. In addition, you can listen to a guide about nearby tourist attractions in multiple languages via earphones.
