There are a number of cruise courses on the rivers of Tokyo and in the Port of Tokyo.

Tokyo's rivers and seashores are spacious, and there are a variety of cruise operations in the area.
This includes waterbus "Himiko," the amphibious bus "Tokyo No Kaba," and "Sakura" of the Tokyo Waterfront Line.
The boats and ferries around Tokyo offer regular courses to typical sightseeing spots, such as Harumi, Ariake, and Aomi, as well as events for special courses.

The Yakatabune course with a beer garden is growing in popularity, as it allows participants to enjoy viewing the cherry blossoms at night, fireworks, and autumn leaves in the tatami room on the boat.
In October 2020, an event called "Sora, Umi, Daichi Tsunagu Minato Fes 2020" (roughly "a port that connects the sky, the sea, and the earth") was held in Tokyo, and it was a great success.
