There is a certain peacefulness that comes from being surrounded by water. Unwind and relax onboard a yakatabune (traditional Japanese-style cruise boat). Formerly private boats of shoguns from the Heian (794 to 1185) to Edo (1603 to 1868) periods, these traditional boats still enjoy popularity today as a unique way to experience Japanese culture. When onboard, sit on a horigotatsu (lowered tatami-matted floor with tables) and enjoy a uniquely Japanese-style dining experience.
