Your adventure commences at Yakatabune Funasei Boarding Pier, a short stroll from Shinagawa Station, setting sail on Tokyo Bay and the Sumida River. As the city's bright lights fade into a distance, you'll be transported to Japan's nostalgic past onboard the Yakatabune; a classic houseboat exuding an old-world allure. Be captivated by Tokyo's iconic landmarks – the Rainbow Bridge and Tokyo Skytree, shimmering against the night canvas.

Feast and Festivity aboard the Yakatabune

As the city’s skyline unfolds, a gastronomic symphony awaits you. Choose from four ticket options, each offering a unique 10-course Japanese dinner. Savor an array of dishes from sashimi (Funamori, meaning 'boat-load', hinting at the generous serving!), tempura, to Chirashi-zushi, and a special dessert. Each course is prepared fresh, changing seasonally for an authentic culinary experience. Coupled with an open bar serving unlimited classics such as beer, Japanese sake, wine, and umeshu, your taste buds are in for a treat.
