Can try once because the price is relatively cheap. But not a great cruise because this does not go out of the city.

When we got there, we weren't able to take the boat in the picture because it was sold out. Instead, we got on an older boat and changed for another older boat at Hinode. No problem at all. The older boats had beautiful light fittings,...More

We went from Asakusa and down the Sumida river to Hamarikyu gardens. We didn't think that the riverside was terribly exciting but seeing a new side of a city from the river is always interesting. The problem with the trip was that the recorded commentary...More

Tokyo is huge, you walk a lot and see a lot of train stations and metros, so it's nice to see Tokyo from the water. However at any vantage point, whether it be from on high or at Sumida River level, Tokyo is a grey...More

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

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
