Safe boat ride + Good food + Great views = Wonderful Experience

It was a memorable night for all of us. The food served are great, especially the crab legs:) The view was overwhelming, the lights from the city and boats make the whole thing extra special. A very nice way of spending your Friday night!

*maybe it would be nice if the tour also has an English-speaking guide or even an audio guide in English.

Cruise, Dine and Sightseeing

Reviewed by: Sheila, 2017/05/23

It was a cool experience to see Tokyo sights like the Rainbow Bridge and Tokyo Tower aboard a Yakatabune while we cruised along Sumida River. But on top of everything else, I enjoyed the Japanese cuisine and unlimited drinks! Also a plus was the Haagen Dazs boat selling varied ice cream flavors. :)

A good way to enjoy the Tokyo cityscape at night. The food was delicious and came in generous amounts. Vegetarians and people who are not a fan of raw fish don't need to worry either, as the tour provides alternatives. As for drinks, there weren't a lot of choices, but beer and sake were on the menu, so no complaints. The guide spoke purely in Japanese, but I believe non-Japanese speakers can enjoy the tour regardless.

This tour is perhaps best enjoyed with a group of friends or coworkers.

The boat is very clean and surprisingly stable once it gets going. The fresh tempura was yummy and the view of all the colorful boats on the water was really pretty, we all had a great time.

Despite everything being in Japanese, the meal, view, entire atmosphere was super! Perfect TGIF moment with fellow coworkers. At first I was worried we would be plastered on the floor like other houseboats, but this one had chairs. Got comfy immediately and began eating and drinking non-stop! The groups we shared the boat with were pretty small and was spacious enough for us to move around inside and outside of the boat.
