We did this during the day. I thought it was a touch expensive at about £10 each. Hard to hear the commentary and not loads to see. Still it gets you from A to B. Basically Asakusa to Odaiba. Worth it to rest your legs....More

I went here to see the fireworks over Sumeda river. The fireworks were amazing. The police managed the crowd very well. We had a fantastic time seeing the various types of fireworks.

Do something about different while in Tokyo and take a boat down the beautiful Sumida River. It's so nice to take some time out of hectic Tokyo and cruise down the river. It's a unique way to see the city.
