    Tokyo Taitou-ku Hanakawado 1-1-1
    "Tokyo Cruise Asakusa Pier is located around one minute's walk from Asakusa Station (Tokyo Metro Ginza Line and Tobu Isesaki Line), and around three minutes' walk from Toei Asakusa Station. Visitors can use Asakusa Pier to board Tokyo Cruise boat services that take passengers to visit tourist spots located near the river or in Tokyo Bay, including Hama-rikyu Gardens, Hinode Pier, and Odaiba Seaside Park. The distinctive ""Himiko"" water-bus that travels to Toyosu was designed by Manga comic book artist Matsumoto Reiji with the aim of creating a boat that ""children will want to ride on as soon as they see it."" On-board announcements are made in the voices of characters from popular TV cartoon series ""The Galaxy Express 999."" Other Tokyo Cruise boats with distinctive designs include the ""Hotaluna"" and ""Emeraldas."""

    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...

Tokyo Main Areas

around-area-map

The setting of countless iconic movie scenes and the inspiration for songs, poetry, and literature worldwide, Tokyo barely requires an introduction. It's hard for the kaleidoscopic neon lights, wacky pop culture, and some of the world's tallest structures not to instill excitement in any first-time visitor to Tokyo, whether you're in the very center of the hustle and bustle in Shinjuku or Shibuya or looking in from the quieter suburbs.
