Description

Set off on a night-time dinner cruise in Tokyo Bay aboard a traditional yakatabune boat!

Yakatabune are small traditional boats that date back to the Heian period (794-1185): they typically have a low ceiling, tatami mats on the floor and brightly coloured hulls adorned with lanterns. These vessels are pleasure boats.

After boarding, you'll be taken to your table and seated on a tatami floor mat for the duration of the cruise. You'll be able to admire Tokyo and its iconic landmarks from a different angle: views from the Sumida River and Tokyo Bay include the Rainbow Bridge, the Tokyo Skytree tower, the Odaiba district, etc.

You'll be served a seasonal meal of traditional Japanese classics while admiring the city lights from the windows of the yakatabune. During the crossing, you'll be able to go out on deck to admire the view over Tokyo. You'll also get unlimited drinks (alcoholic and non-alcoholic).

Example menu (as a guide):
- Hors d'oeuvres
- Assorted sashimi (tuna, squid, prawns, scallops, etc)
- Tempura (fried fish and vegetables)
- Chirashi-zushi (bowl of vinegared rice with garnish)
- Noodle dish
- Salad
- Fresh fruit

At the end of the meal, you'll be taken back to the embarkation point.
