This is a very nice cruise. You get a fantastic view of the port and many unique buildings. However, they don't comment or offer an information on where your cruising or what your viewing. So, from that perspective, it's not much of a tourist cruise.

We went from Asakusa to Hinode Pier, total cost for two Y1560. Fun way to see another side of Tokyo with the side canals and homes along the river. Wear a hat and sit out on the upper deck for the full experience. Liquid refreshments...More

The whole trip has nothing to see at all... i would advise everyone not to waste your time and money for this. If you want to try, please take note the ticket they selling is only for one way.

We took the Hotaluna on the Sumida River from Asakusa and Hinode. It has a sci-fi appearance and was named by Leiji Matsumoto (an anime/manga artist). The roof access occurs for a brief period before reaching the pier. The views are OK, there are several...More

It was great to hop on the boat and enjoy the sites from the rivers and see the different bridges we crossed. There were different boats to chose from which made it interesting. I was so glad to have this in my day

The boat ride is a great way to get to the Hama-rikyu Gardens and is within walking distance of the Senso-ji Temple so you can effectively kill three birds with one stone. There are lots of rickshaws stationed by the ticket office. There's also a...More

Good way of seeing Tokyo bay and a few of its bridges but basically that's it. Nothing really special and do only if you have enough time.

Took the river cruise to Asakusa. Many bridges on the way. Lovely skylines. Not like any other short cruises I've been on . Lack of information . Just seemed like we took the transport to get to our next destination.

Caught the cruise after a meander in the gardens and a stop at the tea house. Nothing exceptional but a very pleasant manner in which to spend 30 mins cruising the river Worth doing if you are at the gardens and have some time

A relaxing afternoon on the cruise, good way to see some of the city skyline. I think we passed/under 19 bridges. It was a line for the tickets, so get in early. Great way of finding tourist attractions, you may not of thought of.

Ginza / Tokyo Nihonbashi
Ginza is famous for being a trendy hotspot, but it's
also a downtown area with shops that were founded over
a hundred years ago. Department stores and luxury
boutiques line the route from Nihonbashi to Ginza.
It's a long established tradition to shop and stroll
while the road is closed to traffic. Luxury hotels,
world class cuisine from talented chefs, and a
collection of glitzy clubs will make this area popular

It depends on where you're coming from. We started our tour from Tokyo. My estimate us about 35 minutes.
