this was extremely good experience. I took my colleagues from other countries, but they loved this experience as this involves not just bay cruise, but full course dinner and all you can drink! we also loved how this dinner cruise involves many other local groups on board which make it really authentic experience. they made stops at 2 points where you can overlook Tokyo skytree and Rainbow bridge and there, you can go up on the roof and take picture. boat staff rent us traditional wear. just need to be aware that departing time of this boat is varied depending on the date and condition, supplier sent us update me on when the dinner cruise depart when they finalized so need to check email.
