Asakusa and Tokyo Skytree
On my first visit to Tokyo, I signed up for a half day tour of Tokyo Skytree and Asakusa via Hato Bus tours. Hato, http://www.hatobus.com, has a number of different tour packages ranging from half day to full day. The full day tours include lunch. Our tour guide was a Japanese woman who spoke English very well. We boarded our motorcoach at Hamamatsucho Bus Terminal. We saw the Imperial Palace, National Diet Building, State Guest House, Ginza and drove through Akihabara. Our tour guide did a great job of explaining all that we saw and answered all of our questions. She had a great sense of humor too. She told us that her favorite store was Matsuzakaya - to walk through because it was a bit expensive to shop there! Then - Asakusa - it was time to walk and see Sensoji Temple and shop Nakamise Street! We ended our half day tour at Tokyo Skytree Tembo Deck. It was all so amazing!
