Full description
Begin your Tokyo adventure at a convenient location in Shinjuku, the heart of modern Tokyo, where you’ll board a tour bus.

Kick things off by visiting the Meiji Shrine, Tokyo’s most sacred Shinto shrine dedicated to Emperor Meiji, who modernized Japan back in 1868. Pass by the future home of the 2020 Olympics, the New National Stadium, before visiting the Imperial Palace square. This unique complex, located where the former castle of Tokyo once stood, is now the residence of the imperial family.

Next, pass by the world’s tallest broadcasting antenna, Tokyo SkyTree, before making a 2-hour stopover in Asakusa, a bustling city district and home to Tokyo's largest Buddhist temple, Senso-ji.

From here, leave the tour bus and board a futuristic boat to begin cruising Sumida River along the eastern edge of central Tokyo. Sail to Hamarikyu Gardens, one of the city's most renowned Japanese parks.

Finally, wrap things up by enjoying a spectacular view from the main deck of Tokyo Tower, no less than 150 meters above the ground.
