It was a good short cruise from Toyosu to Asakusa. The boat Looks like a spaceship. Unfortunately, you could not get outside to have better perspective for your Pictures.

It was nice but not super. It was very hot and most of the tour information was in Japanese and they talked about bridges.

Unplanned pleasant ride from Odaiba to Asakusa. Ones in Odaiba island I saw the boat and decided to buy tickets.

A nice boat cruise along the river. Lasts about 40 minutes. The cruise itself was lovely, but the Tokyo riverfront is nothing special

We were trying the boat ride on the Hotaluna, a spaceship like river boat from Akasaka to Odaiba. Cost us Y1,560 or S$19.35 per person per trip for a 50 minutes comfortable ride. Interesting view of the city with so many bridges :-)

Found it through a brief reference on a map. Tourist bureau had no information and when we arrived, found it to be somewhat overpriced for the 30-40 minute cruise down the river.

This is a very nice cruise. You get a fantastic view of the port and many unique buildings. However, they don't comment or offer an information on where your cruising or what your viewing. So, from that perspective, it's not much of a tourist cruise.

We went from Asakusa to Hinode Pier, total cost for two Y1560. Fun way to see another side of Tokyo with the side canals and homes along the river. Wear a hat and sit out on the upper deck for the full experience. Liquid refreshments...More

Ginza / Tokyo Nihonbashi
Ginza is famous for being a trendy hotspot, but it's
also a downtown area with shops that were founded over
a hundred years ago. Department stores and luxury
boutiques line the route from Nihonbashi to Ginza.
It's a long established tradition to shop and stroll
while the road is closed to traffic. Luxury hotels,
world class cuisine from talented chefs, and a
collection of glitzy clubs will make this area popular

It depends on where you're coming from. We started our tour from Tokyo. My estimate us about 35 minutes.
