【DETAILS】

Let's enjoy a luxurious night view with a a boat!
This round-trip course is full of highlights including the scenery that is full of the history of Tokyo and also representative buildings. An ship with events that invite entertainers is also held from time to time.  Since there are many tourists, let's spend a wonderful time with the people from all over the world. The boarding area of the boat is the Harumi boarding area (Asashio small boat pier) which is a 5-minute walk from Kachidoki station on the Toei Oedo line. It is recommended to go to the boarding area while exploring Ginza and Tsukiji. 

First is boarding at 18:45. Please enjoy the scenery inside and outside of the boat.  Next is the departing at 19:00.
We will tour around the standard spots in Tokyo which are Odaiba, Sumida River and the Kiyosu Bridge area.  Please spend a relaxing time while watching the buildings representative of Tokyo such as the Rainbow Bridge, Toko Skytree, Tokyo tower and so on.

When passing through under the Rainbow Bridge, we temporarily anchor. You can go up to the deck and enjoy the night view and the illumination fully. After going through the Rainbow Bridge, go around Sumida River and after the Kiyosu Bridge area to the way back.
In Sumida River and the Kiyosu Bridge area, there is a charming atmosphere different compared to daytime.  The bridge that connects Tsukiji and Tsukishima will light up in blue and green making the scenery from the boat gorgeous. From the Kiyosu bridge area the boat will go back to the Harumi boarding area and there it will end. The course takes about 150 minutes.

【TRIVIA】

A boat with a roof and seats where you can enjoy banquets and meals on board 'Yakatabune.'  The total length is about 20 meters and it has the capacity for 100 people. Half of the space of the boat is used for guests.  As the rivers improved in the Edo period, it spread to the Daimyo and the merchant and it became a popular way to enjoy cherry-blossom viewing, moon viewing and fireworks. Especially the yakatabune in Sumida River was said to be decorated with gold and silver lacquer and that it was gorgeous. After that its popularity declined due to the prohibition of building large boats in the year 1682. And then after the Meiji restoration its build started again but it lost its momentum because of changes in culture and the deterioration of rivers. But thanks to the improvement of water quality, its use has increased again. And then it became the way it is now.
