Networking At Night -Floating Restaurant/River Boat Cruise via Yakatabune-

What better way to kick off a meeting or event by guests networking on a riverboat cruise, taking in the brilliant Tokyo skyline at night! These beautiful boats are outfitted to take up from 20 to 108 guests around the Sumida River, sailing under the spectacularly vibrant Rainbow Bridge as delicious traditional Japanese food and drink are served.

“Yakatabune,” or travel on lavishly decorated boats, harkens back to how turn-of-the-century Japanese aristocrats were entertained, with the finest food and sake served on riverboats traversing the coastline. See the “floating city of Tokyo” the way it was meant to been seen, taking in all the historical buildings and modern architecture.


Large windows and tatami straw-mats allow attendees to recline and watch the skyline peacefully drift by. Commentary on Japanese and local history is available in a variety of languages, including English, French and Russian. Like most things in Japan, getting to the boarding area is pleasant, easy and convenient to other attractions.
