Yakatabune houseboats floating on Tokyo Bay

“Yakatabune houseboats” have existed for over 260 years, since the samurai era.
Visitors take off their shoes and get onto a covered boat with tatami mat flooring, and can experience the atmosphere of samurai and geisha. Reflecting on the now-distant samurai era and taking in beautiful nightscapes while enjoying delicious tempura and sake will likely be an unforgettable once-in-a-lifetime experience.
