About the Cruises

Enjoy the charm of Tokyo Mizumachi® from the river! We’ve teamed up with Tokyo Waterways to offer two cruises. There’s a 50-minute cruise that carries you past 12 famous bridges and includes a voucher for a sandwich and drink at Shake Tree Diner. A 20-minute cruise offers a chance to experience a little time on the water with a great view of Tokyo Skytree.

Take a chance and change your perspective. You might be amazed at what you discover when viewing the familiar Tokyo scenery from a boat on the river. See Tokyo’s old history and new culture by cruising the Sumida River!


Welcome to the Tokyo Waterways river cruise. A combination of a Venetian water taxi and a limousine, our ship provides a comfortable ride, the interior design of a hotel room, an open deck at the rear, and space for up to 10 people.
We present you, our special guests, with a high-quality river cruise aboard a spacious ship.


The 50-minute Sumida River Cruise comes with a voucher* for a Chili Sandwich from Shake Tree Diner. This sandwich is not on the regular menu and is only available to guests taking the Mizumachi 1st Anniversary 50-minute Cruise.
Chili is an irresistible treat for meat lovers. Made with minced, 100% US beef and special spices carefully stewed in tomato sauce, it delivers a perfectly balanced, slightly spicy flavor when served on Shake Tree Diner’s special whole grain bread.

* Voucher is valid until the end of July and Eat-In only

Please note that, based on existing reservations, it may not be possible to secure enough seats for large parties. For a better chance to obtain seating for large parties, please make your reservation as early as possible.

Unfortunately, it is not possible to cancel a reservation but if weather prevents the cruise from taking place a full refund will be issued.

As there is a no-cancellation policy, there is no waiting list.

The Sumida River is fairly calm but wakes from passing ships result in some swaying. If you have any concerns, take an anti-sea-sickness medication between 30 minutes and 1 hour before boarding.

Drinks provided by Shake Tree Diner can be enjoyed on board, but please refrain from bringing other food and drinks on board.

There is no private parking lot but public coin parking is available in the area.

Pets are not allowed on board under any circumstances.

There is no chairlift at the pier or barrier-free restroom on board the ship. If you are using a wheelchair or have difficulty using stairs, the staff will assist you with boarding and disembarking. To ensure safety we may need to limit the number of wheelchairs boarding at the same time. Please let us know the number of wheelchair spaces required at the time of booking. If we are not notified at the time of reservation, we may need to refuse boarding in consideration of your safety.
In addition, for the safety of our customers, we require that each person using a wheelchair be accompanied by one caregiver.

<Caution when using a wheelchair>
● Please note that wheelchairs cannot move about the ship freely.
● When the tide is low, the stairs of the boarding ramp become steep and it is very dangerous to carry a wheelchair aboard the ship.
● Electric wheelchairs cannot be used due to their weight.

Service may be suspended or operation details may be altered without prior notice due to the weather conditions.
