Savor as you sail

Cruise down the Sumida River for a two-hour expedition, creating memories with your loved ones. Your adventure begins at Azumabashi in the heart of Asakusa, where you'll step onto this floating piece of Japanese history. Settle into the cozy embrace of the traditional Japanese houseboat, and prepare your taste buds for an epic Japanese feast. Dig into fresh sashimi, savory miso soup, tempura so delicate and crispy it's like a flavor explosion, an array of flavorful pickled dishes, a seasonal dessert to satisfy your sweet tooth, and more. And the cherry on top? An unlimited flow of both alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages will keep you refreshed and hydrated as you indulge in this culinary delight.

Skyline bliss
