Tokyo Bay Yakatabune Cruise with Lunch or Dinner Included

Enjoy the Views of Tokyo from the Water

On this tour, you will board a “YAKATABUNE,” a traditional Japanese cruise boat, and enjoy a cruise from the Sumida River to Tokyo Bay. A meal, either lunch or dinner, will be served on board.

The “YAKATABUNE” was once a popular mode of transportation among wealthy merchants. Aboard the ship, you can indulge in luxurious cuisine and enjoy drinks, just as the affluent Tokyoites of the past did.

In old Tokyo, water transportation was a thriving means of travel. The city had various moats and canals, allowing people to travel from their homes to the Sumida River and from there to other surrounding cities via Tokyo Bay.

Unfortunately, water transportation has declined in modern Tokyo. However, by boarding the “YAKATABUNE,” you can enjoy a myriad of splendid views from the water. This cruise tour has recently become very popular among tourists.
