Celebrate the turn of the year with elegance and style on a cruise around Tokyo Bay.
What to expect
This two-hour voyage takes you to see the twinkling lights of Tokyo, Odaiba, and the colorful Rainbow Bridge before a release of balloons at midnight signals the start of 2024.
The cruise includes all-you-can-eat toshikoshi soba noodles, which Japanese households traditionally eat on New Year’s Eve, as well as an hors d’oeuvre set and dessert. The complimentary all-you-can-drink menu includes draft beer, wine, shochu, cocktails, and soft drinks.
Celebrations on board don’t stop! Listen to musicians play classic covers live and watch a magician entertain the crowd.
Note: Don’t worry about getting cold — the deck is fitted with a large heater for the cozy evening ahead.
The cruise costs ¥18,000, which includes food, drinks, and entertainment, and tickets can be bought online.
