Meet your local guide in front of "Tokyo City i" and depart for Asakusa by train. When you arrive, your guide will accompany you to Azumabashi Bridge Pier to board your riverboat on the Sumida River.
During your 45-minute cruise, enjoy romantic views of the Japanese cherry blossoms, whose beautiful trees line the banks of the Sumida River. As your yakatabune (pleasure boat) floats down the river, admire the endless row of trees in full bloom, their delicate white and pink blossoms creating a breathtaking canopy.
While on board, enjoy the rare opportunity to see a traditional dance performance by an apprentice geisha – known colloquially as furisode-san in Tokyo. She will personally pour one complimentary cup of nihonshu (Japanese sake) for each guest.
Your cruise includes a Japanese-style snack in a bento box from Imahan, a famous restaurant in Asakusa that has been serving delicious Japanese cuisine since 1895. Inside you’ll find small servings of grilled salmon, cream korokke (derived from the French croquette), fried chicken, braised kampachi (fish), fried potatoes, stewed Japanese beef with ginger and green onion, rice with octopus, nori (seaweed) and marinated sunagimo (chicken gizzard) with parsley.
As you take in the sights of the cherry blossoms in the evening light, enjoy a complimentary drink with your snack, including beer, lemon shōchū, Japanese tea, soda and Calpis sports drink (alcoholic drinks served to passengers age 20 and over).
After your fill of awe-inspiring views, conclude your tour at Asakusa Station.
