    Tokyo Sumida-ku Narihira 1-17-6
    The Sky Duck is an amphibious bus that looks like a boat with tires attached and provides tours of Tokyo. The bus travels from Tokyo Skytree through the streets of Tokyo on the Kyunaka River, leaving the water to return back to the Skytree via land roads. The highlight of the tour is the “splash point,” when the bus drives full speed into the water with everyone on board, creating an exciting jolt and raising a great plume of water. The Sky Duck tour takes approximately 100 minutes. The bus makes a popular activity to enjoy either before or after checking out Tokyo Skytree itself. Tokyo Skytree Station is the closest station to bus boarding station.

    After I read the reviews, I knew what to expect, but I still wanted to ride it just to see. Even though Tokyo is such a dynamic city, they've managed to choose the least impressive route with...

It departs from “River Station Hachikenya” near Temmabashi Station and travels overland around famous spots such as the Osaka City Hall, Midosuji, Osaka Prefectural Office, Osaka Castle, and Osaka Mint Bureau. At Sakuranomiya Park, famous as a cherry blossoming spot, the bus driver quickly turns into a boat captain. The moment the bus dynamically plunges into the Okawa River using a slope is impressive. The guide’s entertaining talk introducing the city of Osaka is also enjoyable.

    Its a 5 star tour but let down by Japanese speaking only tour guide. Too bad, because the tour was great, sakura was blooming to the max however they should at least provide on screen translation...
