HOP ON HOP OFF SIGHTSEEING BUS TOKYO

ABOUT US

“Hop on/off +vehicle” means to “jump on the vehicle/jump off the vehicle”. This means that you can just jump on the bus and visit tourist sites (via the bus stop), and the casual and free nature of this is expressed in the popular name “hop”. This is a convenient bus where, provided you buy a special pass, you can get on and off as many times as you like as long as you do this during the set period/time.
