This was nice. They serve snacks on board. There's not much in the way of narration. They point out every bridge we go under and that about it. Since most of our stay was traveling in the subway, it was nice to get above ground...More

When you take the trains, you see streets of buildings. From the water, you get a different perspective of Tokyo's waterfront and the new developments (often on land reclaimed. from the ocean). It is a leisurely boat ride, with an optional transfer and extension. Do...More

Tokyo is a city to walk - see the main streets, explore the side alleys, pop into the small restaurants or big shopping malls and pay a visit to the serene temples perfectly well kept in between new glass buildings. It doesn't present itself as...More

From Ginza the pier is only 2km away and fairly easy to find. I found a very kind lady that helped me choosing the cruise and buying the ticket and she spoke good English. I opt for the Asakusa round trip. The boat had no...More

Got the boat from Odaiba to Asakusa. Not sure which boat, as there’s a couple of different options, but it wasn’t the really fast silver space age one but the one that took 70 minutes and stopped a couple of times. The cruise was great...More

I've been to Tokyo a lot. This trip was with kids. This was a great way to see the city. We did the boat tour that ended in Hama-rikyu Garden which was great. It's a boat ride and then get to see a beautiful garden...More

a relaxing trip down or up river that affords nice views of bridges and buildings. A great change from the subways, taxies, or by-foot travel. An amazing way to enter or depart from Hamarikyu Garden.

If you've done big city cruises like Paris , Washington DC , NYC Singapore, this one doesn't match up , the audio is poor and the seats hard the beverage service is minimal at best , could be a lot better for tokyo standards

Fantastic way to see Tokyo from another angle, by way of the similar-Gawa River. Make sure you get to the ticket office if starting off at Asakusa at least 45 min early to book your ticket. Or book tickets online at least a day beforehand....More

Ginza / Tokyo Nihonbashi
Ginza is famous for being a trendy hotspot, but it's
also a downtown area with shops that were founded over
a hundred years ago. Department stores and luxury
boutiques line the route from Nihonbashi to Ginza.
It's a long established tradition to shop and stroll
while the road is closed to traffic. Luxury hotels,
world class cuisine from talented chefs, and a
collection of glitzy clubs will make this area popular
