Nouryousen Yukata Boat Cruise 東京湾納涼船
Nouryousen Yukata Boat Cruise is a popular summer activity and typically runs between end of June to beginning of October every day. Japanese girls are all decked out in yukatas to enjoy this one of a kind summer party!
It's a 2 hour all you can drink boat cruise that tours around the Tokyo Bay for ¥2600! If you visit between Monday to Friday in a yukata, you get ¥1,000 discount. By mid September to beginning of October, tickets go for ¥2100! The great thing about this all you can drink party is they pour all the drinks so you can just grab and go. They serve beer, lemon sour and wine. Juice, soft drinks and oolong tea are available for non drinkers and kids.
Food like takoyaki, karaage, yakitori, yakisoba and kebabs are available, however, you'll need to purchase a food ticket for about ¥500. If you want to sit down and dine on the boat cruise, the meal option ranges between ¥2,885 - ¥4,050 per person with minimum of 4 people. There's a huge dance floor but people crowd around the stage to watch the yukata girls' singing and dancing performance.
All tickets must be reserved by telephone or online. The website is Japanese only but there's an "English Information" button on the top right corner. To make a reservation, please contact HIS travel agency by email: firstname.lastname@example.org Please entitle “NOURYOUSEN’’ and fill in the date, full name for all participants, gender, age and nationality.
You'll need to pick up your tickets and board at Takeshiba Pier, there's usually a line up so I recommend to go earlier to get your tickets. Boarding time is at 6:30pm, the cruise takes off at 7pm and returns at around 9:15pm. This is a popular summer event so don't miss out on the festive parties!
