Back in Seattle we had “The Duck,” an amphibious bus that took tourists on a sort of “surf and turf” tour of the city. Hinomaru Limousine Group in Tokyo also be takes to the water with “The Sky Duck.” The Sky Duck is the newest edition to the fleet of “Sky Buses” already plying the metropolis’s busy streets.
The original Sky Bus is a must for any traveler to, or newly minted resident of, Tokyo. They are easy to get to, fun to ride, and reasonably priced. Being a bus the “mobile” aspect of covering a ton of ground in Tokyo in a limited time frame is pretty obvious. The buses are double-decked and open top, so weather is a factor there, but the ride on high is reportedly a blast in and of itself.
The “Tokyo Sky Duck” is an amphibious version of the famous Sky Bus tour, taking you from turf to surf, and hopefully back again, along two tour routes; the Tokyo Sky Tree Course, and the Kameido Course. The tour time is about an hour and costs 2,600 yen for adults and 1,200 for children.
Drop in, no reservations required, and enjoy this unique way to view the sights of Tokyo.
