Overview
See the sights of Osaka with a hop-on-hop-off tour over two consecutive days by bus and boat. Just book online and select a 2-day ticket with either a 1- or 2-day subway pass to help you get around the city with ease. Travel to landmarks such as the Buddhist temple of Shitennoji Temple and Osaka Castle, and explore neighborhoods like Umeda and Shinsaibashi at your own pace. Complimentary Wi-Fi is included on board the bus, so you can post photos as you travel around.
What to Expect
The Wonder Loop hop-on hop-off bus runs in a loop from 9 am until 8pm. Get on and off as much as you like at 14 locations around Osaka City. Get off at one of the bus stops, do some sightseeing or shopping and get on the next bus for more adventures. With free WiFi on the bus and a concierge to help you, view the city while on the move and plan your next activity. 

The Wonder Cruise is also included in the pass and takes you onto the rivers and canals of Osaka (please note that from April 1, 2018, Wonder Cruise will operate on a 1 ride basis). Catch it close to Dotonbori and see the famous running Glico man sign from a front row seat. Sit back and relax as this comfortable pontoon boat takes you up the canal, through the water lock and onto the river with illuminated bridges and river banks around Nakanoshima. Wonder Cruise boarding points are all within walking distance from a Wonder Loop bus stop.

With either the one or two day included Osaka city subway, city bus & New Tram pass, you can also use the Osaka municipal transport system whenever you like or need. With Wonder Loop bus, Wonder Cruise river boat, and Osaka City transport network all in your hand, you can reach most of central Osaka quickly and conveniently!

The worst Hop-on-Hop-off I have experienced

I am a lover of the Hop-on-Hop- off buses. Capetown, Buenos Aires, Amsterdam, Madrid, London, Las Palmas, so I bought it in Osaka. The worst by far. The schedule, the long stops, the very very bad information and the more or less ininteligible english.
