Summary

 

Walking Tour (2 hours)   

 

Breathe and savor the sweet smell of cherry blossom trees that the Japanese have cherished for generations in an idyllic setting!

Should you decide to join us on the walking tour before the cruise, we will meet at the entrance of Asakusa Culture Tourist Information Center, which is located in front of the KAMINARIMON GATE (Thunder Gate) of Sensoji Temple. We'll explore the traditional Shitamachi area and provide you with stories of its history, all the while enjoying the cherry blossoms on the way. 

You'll have stories to share at your next friendly gathering after learning 1,400 years' worth of secrets of Sensoji Temple from our fun and knowledgeable English-speaking guides.

Lunch or Dinner Cruise (2.5 hours)

 

This special Cherry Blossom Viewing Tour on a chartered traditional Sumida River boat includes a traditional Japanese banquet and entertainment inside a traditional Japanese tatami floored YAKATABUNE boat. Guests will be able to enjoy a romantic view of the cherry blossoms, as well as other amazing sights such as the Tokyo Skytree and Sumida River's unique bridges.  At night, a whole different illuminated scenery will dazzle you and leave you enamored with Tokyo.  

Don't miss this chance for an unforgettable experience even locals don't usually have access to! 

Languages Offered: English, Japanese

During the Sumida River cruise on a chartered Yakatabune boat you can enjoy the following;

 

1. Direct view of the (illuminated) cherry blossoms on both banks! 
2. Traditional gourmet Japanese cuisine with a variety of non-alcoholic and alcoholic drinks including Japanese sake, shochu, beer and wine. 
3. Sit back and let yourself be transported to a different time while our knowledgeable guides entertain you in traditional Kimono wear. You'll have the chance to listen to many historical anecdotes related to the cherry blossoms and the area.
4. In-depth explanations on traditional Japanese cuisine and alcohol. If you've ever been curious as to why the Japanese love cherry blossoms so much and their origins, we'll share these secrets with you too, dating all the way back to the Period of Warring States.
5. An enjoyable and memorable time from start to finish.
- The cruise will feature a special live entertainment - a Japanese harp-style 'koto' (a thirteen-stringed traditional Japanese musical instrument) performance and a 'Shigin' recital (a traditional Japanese performing art of chanting Chinese poems.)

- Try your hand at traditional Japanese games with our guides on the Tatami floor!

- Plenty of Karaoke fun with a variety of English songs for you to enjoy. We'll also teach you how to sing the world-famous Japanese song 'Sakura Sakura' (Cherry Blossom song) in actual Japanese so you can impress your friends back home!
 

When you are dizzy from the entertainment and fun, climb up to the rooftop deck (depending on the boat type) and let the sweet wind of Spring calm you down. 

 

When the river cruise ends, each guest will receive a cherry blossom-related gift to commemorate the evening!
