My wife and I boarded our ship at Hinode Pier and enjoyed the 40 minute cruise to Asakusa during our latest visit to Hawaii. The journey was pleasant although the Japanese only narration precluded us from learning more about the city and its architecture.

We thought this might be more interesting. Apart from the view of the rainbow bridge, it was pretty uninspiring. There are no sights to see from the river, just blocks of flats and business buildings. The boat we were on gave us headaches from the diesel fumes and we’d probably not pay for the round trip if we were doing this again, better to use it as a means of getting from one place to another. Overall, just OK

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.
