A swimming bus? Explore Odaiba and Tokyo Bay by Kaba “hippo”!

In Tokyo, sightseeing buses and cruise ships are popular tourist attractions. But did you know that there is a bus that drives into the ocean and then turns into a ship? Our three reporters went on a trip with the “TOKYO NO KABA” bus at Odaiba.


This is the ship!

“TOKYO NO KABA” is a bus that drives around Tokyo’s leisure island Odaiba and then turns into a ship for a cruise around Tokyo Bay. The word means “hippo” in Japanese and it’s a brand new attraction. The operation just started last November and this new tour will be one of the touristic highlights of 2018 – for sure!

Cruising around Tokyo Bay

After a 45 minute ride around Odaiba and its touristic attractions, the bus cruises around Tokyo Bay for 25 minutes. The bubbly tour guide is explaining the surroundings and also has a fun quiz for the passengers.
