Catch a unique perspective of Tokyo, riding aboard a comfortable water bus. Cruise through narrow canals and open sea, venturing from an old historic center all the way to a modern reclaimed island.
Pass through the Kaminarimon, or Thunder Gate, and marvel at the massive ancient structure and picturesque huge red lantern. Take time to wander through this cultural site with a backdrop that perfectly juxtaposes the traditional-modern duality of Japan. Purchase some incense at the entrance to light and offer your prayers.
Board at the Asakusa Pier and purchase a ticket for the Asakusa-Odaiba Direct Line ticket office. Enjoy the pleasure cruise as it smoothly sails down the Sumida River into Tokyo Bay. Take advantage of the panoramic windows to get some fabulous shots of riverside Tokyo.
Take a leisurely stroll along the sandy beaches, taking in the sights at each of the park areas, including a gorgeous fountain and Edo-period naval batteries that were never used at Daiba Park. Climb up to the observatory and snap a few iconic pictures of Rainbow Bridge and the downscaled Statue of Liberty.
Walk down the street from Odaiba-Kaihinkoen Station, or through the park towards AQUACiTY. Inside the massive shopping mall, you'll find Tokyo Ramen Kokugikan Mai on the 5th floor. Take your time to peruse each of the shops before settling on your bowl of choice, but don't worry, each of the shops boast delicious flavors and unique ramen styles. Grab an outdoor veranda table for spectacular ocean views while you dine.
