I stayed at the Red Planet Hotel Asakusa. The front desk was fantastic. The tour did not start at the hotel, but the desk manager got on the phone and the Japanican Tour counterpart figured out the easiest Ginza Line route for me to the bus terminal for pickup. I enjoyed the panoramic tour immensely. The views provided a snapshot of Tokyo. It is a full day. The view from the restaurant was breathtaking. People of every nationality - Canadian, Italian, American, Russian. I chatted with a gentleman from Tokyo who was taking the tour! Our guide was knowledgeable and helpful. I would have no hesitation recommending the hotel (reasonably priced) or one day tour.
