Relax in the comfortable cruise boat, and see Osaka's best sights from the water! The waterways were the life blood of this prosperous merchant city, and there is no better way to get a feel for Osaka then by traveling along them.
Pass right under the famous signs of Dotombori, by the busy little island of Nakanoshima, past the Meiji-era Public Hall and under lots of cool bridges.
The guides for these unique cruises are rakugo (traditional Japanese comedy) artists, so you can expect a light and relaxed atmosphere on-board. Get laughing with the trademark Osaka sense of humor and wit.
