Sumida River Senbonzakura Cruise

¥5,000 (advance sales)

Enjoy a live koto — the national musical instrument of Japan — and shakuhachi flute performance while taking in the plentiful cherry blossoms and Tokyo Skytree.

What happens?

You will board a yakatabune (traditional Japanese pleasure boat) and be taken along the Sumida River to some of the best cherry blossom-viewing spots in Tokyo. While on the water, you’ll escape the crowds while listening to beautiful, atmospheric traditional musical instruments. There is also an observation deck.


Tickets are ¥4,000 for 6 to 12-year-olds and ¥5,000 for those who are older.

How to get there

The boat will set sail from Akihabara-Izumi Bridge, only a 2-minute walk from Akihabara Station.
