Travel Guide - Water Bus (Odaiba and Asakusa)


Water Bus comfortably takes you to the major spots in Tokyo Bay Area including Odaiba, Tokyo Big Sight, and Hama-Rikyu Garden, and to Asakusa by running through the Sumida-gawa River. The spaceship-like boats called "Himiko" and "Hotaluna", both designed by a famous Manga artist Leiji Matsumoto and cruise between Odaiba and Asakusa, are especially popular.
