Joys of Cruising

Tokyo offers visitors many different ways to enjoy the variety of vessels that ply its waterways, ranging from small boats to larger cruise ships.

Tokyo Gate Bridge and Factory Night Cruise

The view of Tokyo at night is extra special when you’re free to choose your angle. Take advantage of the metropolis’s array of transportation services and enjoy the scenes from a ship, from a helicopter, and from an open-top double-decker bus.

Tokyo Gate Bridge and Factory Night Cruise

The cruise takes a journey through a variety of themes, from Tokyo Gate Bridge to Rainbow Bridge, to the runways of Haneda Airport, to the seaside factory district. Enjoy a different, fresh view of Tokyo at night from the water.

Funasei and Harumiya (yakatabune houseboats)

Imagine the scene they enjoyed while taking in the view of TOKYO SKYTREE and delighting in exquisite Edo-style tempura.
