Cruising

Overview

Nihonbashi is a place where you can enjoy various cruising tours since the place connects to many unique characteristic rivers, including the Nihonbashi River, Kanda River, and Sumida River. You can enjoy seeing not only many famous bridges but also views that change depending on whether it is day or night. The cruising tours are so popular that sometimes the tickets are sold out depending on the season. At Nihonbashi Boarding Dock, various cruising tours start and as many as 50,000–60,000 people enjoy the tours each year. In March 2016, the number of all the passengers exceeded 300,000 and they all enjoyed the sightseeing from the boat.
