Great Japanese experience! If you and a group or couple want to enjoy a real Japanese meal in a nice boat book this! The experience was great, you boarded the boat and you have a reserved table inside with your name. You are sitting on the floor and served free drinks. The Japanese dinner was quite good, fresh tempura, sashimi, rice, cold noodles, and a small dessert. Great atmosphere to see Tokyo at night, the boat will stop and you can go up on the roof of the boat to take pictures. Expensive but well worth it!

From start to finish, this was an exceptional experience. The food was amazing, the setting lovely, the other guests and the staff friendly and the alcohol plentiful. I would have no hesitation in highly recommending this activity.

Phenomenal! Booked the cruise for myself and two friends. We all had an amazing time. The food, drink, and service were all extraordinary. Can’t beat the experience for this price! アリガト ゴザイマス!

It really is the best way to see beauty of the city. All the major bridges landmarks lit against nights sky paired with Japanese cuisine.

What a beautiful experience, the food was very good, the trip was very nice
