Nihonbashi: Tours & Tickets
What people are saying about Nihonbashi
Good for getting a sense of the distances and layout of Tokyo’s major tourist attractions. Taped commentary difficult to hear at times. Music accompaniment unhelpful and did not add to atmosphere. Bus stopped directly beside some attractions (Edo Museum, Tokyo Tower and Sky Tower) but others ( Asakusa, Royal Palace etc) were a couple of streets away. But, generally good value for the money.
The fastest and cheapest way to look around the city if your stay is limited. Goes all prime locations. But too bad they wouldn't stop at "Ginza" district. It was too late to get off once they have announced the beautiful location of Ginza. Some of the tourist guides are hard to understand. Other than these issues, overall I'd recommend to the visitors.
The day that we picked happened to be raining and the first available bus was an roof top only bus and only one row of seats were covered. If that is the case for the day you go, it’s worth the 30min wait for the next bus that has bottom seating as well. Otherwise the tour was useful and got to see Tokyo and plan for another visit.
Great tour guide, enjoyed the tour went very quickly as we stopped to enjoy the shops, history and sample the Japanese food. Our guide was very well informed and lovely. Would highly recommend. Family all said was well worth it and enjoyed the tour, even our 17 year old.
Great insider local info. Would recommend and do again. Our guide was very knowledgeable and genuinely wanted to show us the Various hand made items/food/fabric/buildings/shrines in the older parts of Tokyo. Learnt so much!
