    • flower-viewing cruise POI #1: Meguro River’s cherry blossoms are like a tunnel of flowers!
      Meguro River is a renown spot for flower-viewing in Tokyo. When cherry blossoms are in their season, you will see the riverside bustling with festivals, food stands, and events. The 800 cherry blossom trees that adorn the river over 4 km looks almost like a tunnel of flowers!
      At night, the cherry blossoms don a whole new beauty. Lit by lanterns, the swaying reflection of the flowers project onto the river. This creates a dreamy scenery different from the daytime!
    • flower-viewing cruise POI: A carpet of fallen flowers!
      Not only do cherry blossoms bloom with elegance; they also fall with grace. When the flower petals begin to fall, they shower over the river in a beautiful display. The petals then float on the river surface, making a beautiful carpet of petals. The carpet is especially dense as the river becomes narrower; witness the floral beauty of Meguro River’s cherry blossoms!

      This luxurious flower-viewing experience is unlike anything else; this year, try a relaxing cruise through a tunnel of cherry blossoms in full bloom!
    • Fact about the Cruise Boat: The Seats are recycled from the old National Stadium!
      The seats of the cruise boat are recycled from the older Tokyo National Stadium. The chairs can be seen repurposed at many of Tokyo’s facilities, but rarely are they adopted into cruise boats.
      These seats have seen many tears, laughs, and legends over the years. In many new ways today, they continue to enrich the lives of people in Tokyo!
