The Tokyo Helicopter cruise is a fun and exciting way to see the beautiful city of Tokyo!

The 15minute ride takes you 600 meters high above the skyline, where you can enjoy the cites beautiful landmarks like Mt Fuji fading away in the background, or the famed Tokyo Sky Tree that darts from the ground like a neo-futuristic beacon made of steel and shimmering lights.

15 minutes might seem a bit short, but well worth it. 

Seeing Tokyo from high in the sky is something truly to behold.

You wouldn't really have an idea of just how huge Tokyo actually is until you've seen it by helicopter.

 

_NKN9572
We chose the Night-Flight due to our scheduling and we were told that seeing Tokyo from the Sky at night is a once in a lifetime experience we wouldn't forget.

Final Thoughts

After your flight,  you are given a boarding certificate as a memento of your adventure. It's a neat keepsake that you can hang on your wall. 

All-in-all, it's safe to say that an evening helicopter cruise through your favorite city is something that almost everyone has on their bucket list.  

We were glad to have gotten the chance to see Tokyo in a way not many tourists get to.   

If you have the cash and want to experience Tokyo in a totally exciting way? Go for the Tokyo Helicopter Cruise!
