The island of Oedo is really beautiful and recommendable. The rest of the tour was okay. Unfortunately the guide didn't tell much and was generally very quiet. The driving style of the bus driver was shocking. Among other things, he had meanwhile entered the wrong lane and therefore drove in the opposite direction. The bus ride also took a long time, so be prepared for that.
