What?! A bus that turns into a boat?!! Sold! Or so I thought. The super genki & kawaii guide made up for the very boring route. Even though Tokyo is such a dynamic city, they've managed to choose the least impressive route with nothing special to see. The highlight was of course the brief moment the bus went in the water and made a big splash. The river was not the most attractive one, also with nothing to see. The boat went up and down a section of the river for a very short time. Then there was a 20-minute stop at this tiny souvenir shop before we could get back on.
You can reserve seats on their website up to a month in advance and pick up the tickets at their office on the day. Their Skytree office can be found by exiting Skytree Solamachi's West Yard, crossing the small bridge then crossing the street - it's on the corner on Asakusa-dori. The bus shakes a lot and has no windows so it can be a bit chilly in the winter, but they give out hand warmer heat packs.
