3,500 yen for a 45 minute bus ride, bit steep.

5 ( +6 / -1 )

Seen the bus around the place already, pretty expensive ticket price.

all these laws and new businesses launching, for a two week even that will be forgotten a day after its over...

-4 ( +1 / -5 )

Looks like as if it is sinking...

looks extremely uncomfortable, I fail to see the resemblance of that train design either... did he just sell his name or something to boost it?

1 ( +3 / -2 )

It isn't about the tour, it is about the experience. Sort of like gondolas of Venice which cost 3-7 times higher.

No links, no info on starting/finishing points, does travel on both land & water or just water.....................

They've had amphibious bus tours in Osaka for years.

@ dadude gondolas and Venice - buses and tokyo bay - interesting analogy.

Hello people.

I think the starting price should be the now child price (1,700)

3,500 for 45 min of....well nothing much really, is asking a bit much. Can't see local folk using this much.

I guess they are doing what all major cities do. Hit the tourist.

That thing looks like it's going to flip over at any moment.

Is that thing safe?!?

Full of people it does look a little top-heavy.

(Only two or three of these have sunk in the UK I believe.)

Although Tokyo scares me, I also love it. Apart from Robot Cafe and live music at the Cotton Club, my most memorable experience was a water cruise. It is a great way to view the city for about 1500yen.

Reminds me of "Singapore Duck Tour", which was also around 3000JPY.

This is no duck boat in Boston. Is it sea worthy? Look at listing right. Ticket is takai....Hmm not sure. I want to see the hull.

It looks like it would capsize if a strong gust of wind blew against it, or if some of the passengers moved to the other side in order to take pictures... imagine a bus load of supersized persons from the UK or US...
