What To Expect
First, head to the 40-story-tall Tokyo Tower to enjoy magnificent 360-degree views from the skyscraper’s observation platform. From this unique vantage point, you can spot the city’s iconic Tokyo Skytree and, when the weather’s clear, even the majestic Mount Fuji.
Soon you arrive at Asakusa Kannon Temple (Senso-ji), which dates to AD 645, and is known as the city’s most famous Buddhist religious site. Listen as your guide details the temple's fascinating history and then admire its idyllic gardens, intricate architecture and sturdy gates. Next exit the temple via the Hozomon Gate, continuing on to the Nakamise shopping area, a commercial district where you can browse the many vendors offering traditional Japanese souvenirs and snacks.
Finish your day by heading to the Sumida River to begin your cruise. Climb aboard your vessel as you glide beneath 12 of the city’s many bridges, listening to a recorded audio guide that adds context about the history of this unique urban waterway.
Step back on land at Hinode Pier, where you return to your coach for a drop-off and receive a complimentary souvenir map to continue your own explorations of this one-of-a-kind city.
