- Tokyo One-hour Tour on Open-Top Bus: https://www.hatobus.co.jp/dom/feature/tomodachi/english/

Tourists can now take in the dynamic scenery of the Tokyo metropolitan, including magnificent skyscrapers and beautiful roadside trees—the view of which is blocked by the roof on conventional buses.

Get a real sense of the atmosphere of Tokyo: the seasonal aromas of cherry blossoms and gingko trees, helicopters flying through the air, the sound of trains coming and going, the fresh breeze, and much more. Try our open-top bus to see the many faces of Tokyo.
