Travel Guide - Aqua-Liner River Cruise


Osaka is sometimes called as a city of waterways. Actually, there are a few rivers and canals on which you can cruise the city, taking in the sights without any strain on the legs. It is a nice way to spend a day in the large city especially when you don't feel like exhausting yourself.
Osaka Suijo Bus is a ship operating company that runs "Aqua-Liner" water buses. The low-lying, glass-topped boat cruises on the Okawa River and stops at Osaka Castle Pier, Hachiken-yahama Pier, Yodoya-bashi Pier and OAP (Osaka Amenity Park) Pier. An English audio guide is available to explain the sights on the route. Tours depart on the hour every day from 10 am to 4 or 5 pm with additional departures during the cherry-blossom season (late-March to mid-April) or other special occasions. To get on board from Osaka Castle Pier, walk west toward the next bridge over from JR Osakajo-Koen Station and look for the sign to the Aqua-Liner Pier (in front of Osaka-jo Hall).
