Came across this by accident and decided to go in the cruise on a gray Sunday February afternoon. Lovely old steamboat so ok from that point of view. But as someone else noted: the riverfront is very dull. But still interesting as us shows that Tokyo has still the potential to develop it’s riverfront

Awesome start of the day, seeing Tokoy from the waterside, stepped on close to our hotel, and was sailed directly to where we wanted to be.... very friendly staff.

It was a little bit too cramped for our taste, we had to sit indian style near a hot grill for about 2 hours, It was nice, but a drunk group were making too much noise in this boat. We couldnt really enjoy the view very much.

The Hotoluna is such a cool boat: All-glass, sleek and modern, with a lounge layout and a bar the back serving drinks and ice cream. For about Y1,050 each the price seemed reasonable to float down the Sumida River in style and comfort. There is some narration in Japanese. We had our concierge call ahead to ensure we got the Hotoluna or Himiko for our segment as this company has several different types of boats and we wanted to be indoor on a cold November day. The Asakusa Pier is right by the Asakusa Station and close to Senso-ji and other attractions. Apart from us there was only a group of 6 high school students aboard so we had our pick of seats.

You will need a great guide to keep you interested here. i felt that this water bus is used more by the locals as a form of transportation than being a tourist attraction. The speed of the water bus is too fast and does not give the impression of a cruise which should be a bit laid back. Keep it out of your itenary.
