hop on/off buses?

Hi!

Are there any recommended hop on/off tour buses in Tokyo? Do any of them run through Ikeburo/Shinjuku?

Thanks!

While I am not arguing against taking buses, I think it would be more straightforward and without much waiting time to take trains.

Tokyo Station (for Edo Castle ruins/East Gardens of the Imperial Palace, Bridgestone Museum of Arts) to Akihabara (Electric, manga and anime town) : JR Yamanote or Keihin-Tohoku Line.

Akihabara - TX Asakusa (for Kappabashi kitchen street, Nakamise Market and Sensoji Temple) : TX (Tsukuba Express) Line.

Tobu or Toei Asakusa - Oshiage / Tokyo Skytree : Tobu Railway or Toei Metro Asakusa Line.

Tokyo doesn't have much to show from buses (it's a city completely destroyed by WW2), and no buses cover all the main areas. Trains hopping on and hopping off might tell a lot more about Tokyo and Japan in general.

Hato Bus is a reliable operator of bus tours in Tokyo. Perhaps they might be of some interest to you.
