We were trying the boat ride on the Hotaluna, a spaceship like river boat from Akasaka to Odaiba. Cost us Y1,560 or S$19.35 per person per trip for a 50 minutes comfortable ride. Interesting view of the city with so many bridges :-)

The cruise gave us a 40 mins ride on Sumida River with beautiful views of Tokyo from the sea. I recommend the cruise if you have time as is beautiful, relaxing and take only 40 mins!.

Very nice ride in good weather, can see bridges and new modern buildings, sumo area has posters of fighters you can see from the boat. We took a ride to Asakusa, pretty refreshing after hopping subways all day. Asahi headquarters has a unique design to...More

Found it through a brief reference on a map. Tourist bureau had no information and when we arrived, found it to be somewhat overpriced for the 30-40 minute cruise down the river.

This is a very nice cruise. You get a fantastic view of the port and many unique buildings. However, they don't comment or offer an information on where your cruising or what your viewing. So, from that perspective, it's not much of a tourist cruise.

We went from Asakusa to Hinode Pier, total cost for two Y1560. Fun way to see another side of Tokyo with the side canals and homes along the river. Wear a hat and sit out on the upper deck for the full experience. Liquid refreshments...More

The whole trip has nothing to see at all... i would advise everyone not to waste your time and money for this. If you want to try, please take note the ticket they selling is only for one way.

We took the Hotaluna on the Sumida River from Asakusa and Hinode. It has a sci-fi appearance and was named by Leiji Matsumoto (an anime/manga artist). The roof access occurs for a brief period before reaching the pier. The views are OK, there are several...More

It was great to hop on the boat and enjoy the sites from the rivers and see the different bridges we crossed. There were different boats to chose from which made it interesting. I was so glad to have this in my day

The boat ride is a great way to get to the Hama-rikyu Gardens and is within walking distance of the Senso-ji Temple so you can effectively kill three birds with one stone. There are lots of rickshaws stationed by the ticket office. There's also a...More

Ginza / Tokyo Nihonbashi
Ginza is famous for being a trendy hotspot, but it's
also a downtown area with shops that were founded over
a hundred years ago. Department stores and luxury
boutiques line the route from Nihonbashi to Ginza.
It's a long established tradition to shop and stroll
while the road is closed to traffic. Luxury hotels,
world class cuisine from talented chefs, and a
collection of glitzy clubs will make this area popular

It depends on where you're coming from. We started our tour from Tokyo. My estimate us about 35 minutes.
